I hope you all had a wonderful break. The students certainly seem to have come back full of vigour and ready to learn, which is great to see.
We have been particularly proud of all the students – and staff – involved in this year’s secondary production,
One More Day
. Thank you to so many of you for coming along and supporting the show. The acting, dancing and of course singing talents of our students never ceases to amaze me. To produce a show of this magnitude, to present it bilingually, and to make it as poignant and powerful as it is was an incredible achievement. Our special thanks to all the behind the scenes technical staff involved, marketing for promoting it so well, and of course Mr Williams for his energy, drive and simply brilliant direction. Special mention as well must go to those year 11, 12 and 13 cast members who have performed in the play whilst also having their exams on, some of which took place this week!
The exams start in earnest from next Tuesday, and I’m sure you will join me in wishing all of the students the very best of luck and every success in their endeavours. Our year 13s have some exciting offers from universities across the world, and I have no doubt they will achieve these places.
After the long weekend, we are promoting Eco Week in school. On Wednesday, our key stage 3 students will be delivering lessons based on the Global Goals to their primary school peers, which will be a great experience for all involved. As part of demonstrating our awareness of the environmental issues facing us, Friday, 6 May will be a Green Day, with students encouraged to wear an item of green. They should either be all in green, or wear a green top or scarf or hair band or similar with their school uniform. There will be no fee for this, we are merely raising awareness.
Have a wonderful long weekend.
