Dear Parents,

Do school students live in a bubble or are they real world ready? That is a question I often ask myself when planning for the assembly pieces and tutorial slides for the school and wondering what to focus on. In some ways, I feel it is a mix of both and ranges between students. However, part of our responsibility is to get them real-world ready. A recent news article highlighted the Great British Olympic hockey player being thrown out of the Vienna opera for coughing. This gave some great debate on audience behaviour and etiquette and the teaching of what is expected behaviour from an audience. Part of this is learned behaviour and needs to be modelled by all.

Everyone seems to be preparing for something at the moment. Staff and students were in school again this weekend to prepare for the upcoming production of Annie next week. The IB students were preparing for and taking their orals at the weekend that is part of their final grade. Students that are taking art are putting their final preparations to their exhibits that will be on display in the Firs Station Art Gallery for a week.

The IB students, whilst also busy studying, are also helping support the rest of the school. On Thursday night they organised and ran a very successful movie night for the primary students. We anticipate more excited students this week for the results of the early entry maths GCSE. This has proven to be a successful pathway for us recently. The highest achievers sitting their GCSE in January and excelling. They are then placed on a rigorous pre-IB course to ensure their successful completion of higher level maths at IB.

Yours sincerely,

 

Tom Douch
