After my absence last week, it’s back to hub-writing duties with Mr Shooter away this week. He’s working with other leaders from across Nord Anglia schools to further enhance the provision and opportunities for all our students.
One fantastic opportunity the students in years 10-12 have is to go to New York City this summer. They have received a letter today about this and how they can take part in the UNICEF Global Goals Conference in July, together with 80 other students from Nord Anglia schools across the world.
As part of this same initiative, raising awareness of the Global Goals of health and wellbeing and zero hunger, all of our students are invited to created a piece of artwork to submit to a forthcoming exhibition. This art exhibition, entitled Have a Heart, will showcase work on the theme of health and food and parents will be invited to school to buy the actual pieces of art. The money raised will then pay for much-needed heart operations for young children locally. More information will follow, but please talk to your child and encourage them to participate.
Yet another Nord Anglia initiative is the trip to Tanzania, with 22 students heading over to Africa in just two weeks’ time. On Friday, together with a number of staff members, they took part in what was possibly Saigon’s first ever sponsored walk around District 1, raising awareness of and collecting plenty of money for schools and children in the region they will be visiting.
Mr Shooter also mentioned the International Award expedition last week in his article and, having survived the jungle, the students and teachers all arrived back safely with some wonderful memories.
Closer to home, the year 13s are continuing their life skills courses and really enjoying the experience. Read about the cooking here.
Finally, next Tuesday is an extremely important day for year 9 and 11 students, with Options Evening starting at 4pm in the theatre. You will have the opportunity to speak with subject teachers, as well as our College and University Guidance Counsellor, Mr Curran, and Key Stage Coordinators, so it is vital that both you and your child come along to discuss IGCSE and A level choices.
Have a wonderful weekend!
