High School: 21st Century Graduates

Last Saturday’s Graduation of the Class of 2018 was a lovely event and also a historic occasion, not only because these students were the first to graduate from our new High School, but because, for the first time in St Andrews’ history, most of the Graduating Class were born in the 21st Century.

Graduation 2018

In my speech, I spoke about 21st Century Skills, including “the 4 Cs” - Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking, which can all be found in our What Makes a Great St Andrews Lesson? Document and were a real focus during our recent Year 6-9 Project Week.

At St Andrews, we think that some other Cs are equally important, for example Citizenship (included in our Mission Statement, first written 10 years ago, just before St Andrews began offering the IB Diploma Programme) and Community - Our What Makes a Great St Andrews Community? Document was written by the rest of the High School two years ago, while the Class of 2018 were taking their IGCSE exams.

Our 64 Graduates, who have been students at the school for anything from one to fifteen years, are graduating into a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, and I reminded them of the importance of embracing paradox, quoting F. Scott Fitzgerald (“the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function”), dialogue and, quoting Bishop Michael Curry's Sermon at the previous Saturday’s Royal Wedding, love. You can read my full speech here.

Graduation is always a reminder that we are approaching the end of the school year, and as you can see from the Calendar below, we have a very busy four weeks ahead of us. Next week we have the Year 10 and 12 Parent/Student/Teacher Meetings (Parents of students in Years 10 and 12 should already have received more information about these from Mr Rich and/or Mr Jon) followed by the PTG Summer Party next Friday - please see  PTG section of this Newsletter for more information.

Also shown above is the poster for our annual celebration of students’ work in the Arts and Technology, including the recent Year 6-9 Project Week, with EXPO 2018 taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday 20th June  - please see Drama section of this newsletter for more information.

This week is very busy too, with both the TISBETN Dragon's Den Final and the TISAC Drama Festival being hosted at St Andrews this week, as well as our first Year 10 Careers Day this Thursday.

And finally, on Thursday and Friday this week we will have our final Lost Property Collection of the year, with any unclaimed items from earlier in the year being on display in the Canteen at lunchtime. Please remind your daughter/son to come and reclaim any items that they have lost during the year on these days, as any items still unclaimed by the end of lunchtime on Friday will be sold/donated to benefit the various charities that the school works with.
