We still had some examinations going on. Year 13’s completed the end of their mock exams and were rewarded with a celebratory lunch. Their next steps will be a results day on 27th January with the Year 11s. Some of the Year 11s sat their early entry maths exams and this is just one of the ways of challenging students earlier. The benefit of the early entry is that it enables the students to have an IGCSE before the summer and can either concentrate on the rest of their exams, or take an extra one or two exams like many in the current Year 11 cohort are doing.
It was celebratory news for Janieka Mouton in our Year 10 who challenged herself by taking the Afrikaans IGCSE earlier in the year and got her result of a B. Well done to her for her hard work and challenging herself.
The students that went to Tanzania are all back safe and well, having had a life changing experience. I have asked some of them to share their stories with us for next week’s newsletter.
