It has been one of the busiest weeks of the year so far with so many activities and events. This week has truly demonstrated how amazing our school is when everyone pulls together to give our students the very best opportunities. There are far too many to mention so I shall highlight just some.
On Monday, 22 students returned home from a life changing experience having travelled to the NAE camp in Tanzania, Africa. The students and staff were highly complementary about the whole experience and how professional and well run the expedition was. As well as engaging in important local community work they also had the opportunity to travel on safari and witness wild animals in their home environment. A short paragraph cannot do justice to the trip and over the coming weeks we will share with you some of their experiences and stories so that you can get a true sense of the value of such a trip and the enormous benefits to our students and staff. The trip was a long time in planning and I would like to thank Mr Reid and Ms Claydon for their enormous efforts in making the trip such a success for all.
This week we also launched our ‘Have a Heart campaign’. This is part of the NAE global challenge worldwide linked to UNICEF goals. Every year group and many, many students have contributed to this project it has been a monumental effort. The exhibition of work produced by our students is truly outstanding. If you have not had the chance yet, then please do take some time to walk through the exhibition, bid for paintings or make a donation to this very worthwhile cause. I would like to thank Mr Graves for orchestrating such a great initiative for the school.

On Wednesday and Thursday our very talented secondary students performed ‘The Wizard of Oz’. The show was spectacular with some fantastic individual performances. We had amazing attendance on both evenings and thank you to all those families that came to support our students. Our productions seem to get bigger and better each year and I would like to say a very special thank you to Mr Williams for his dedication and hard work with the students to put on another exemplary show. Well done and thank you to all the staff and students involved, it was amazing!
I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
