Happy New Year to you all – a new year and a new decade!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas break with your families and that you are well relaxed and ready to face the new Term ahead.
There certainly wasn’t any time to waste as Wednesday saw the beginning of revision for GCSE and A Level Modular Exams, which started today. A range of Exams will be held during the next few weeks so good luck to everyone involved.
Mental Health plays a big part in everyone’s life and indeed our Assemblies this week have highlighted issues that we all may face on a daily basis. In the UK alone, one in four people will experience a mental health problem over the course of a year. There is still a stigma surrounding it however, and many people don’t seek help. Don’t let that be you – don’t suffer alone – seek help – talk to a friend, a teacher or your parent!
Many of the after-school clubs have started up again and Year 11 Gaelic Trials are under way.
Year 10 have important subject choices to consider towards the end of this Term in preparation for GCSE in Year 11, so already the Careers Service have started to meet with pupils to discuss future pathways. Year 10 were also involved in CCEA online Literacy assessments yesterday – there really is no down time at all in our school!.
This is an extremely busy month for the College as we promote our nurturing ethos, our achievements, and our subject progress and opportunities to our Primary pupils via Taster Days and Open Evening, which will be held on Thursday 23rd January at 7.00pm. Alongside this of course, will be the core business of learning and teaching, in addition to many other activities in and out of the classroom.
Like every day and every week, the Term will move along quite quickly so continue to keep updated on our Website, Facebook and my weekly Blog to see what is happening. And don’t forget about our Parent App – forward us your email and get online!
Talk to you all next week
