Reading was more noticeable everywhere this week and in preparation for World Book Day which occurred yesterday. It was great to see so many students and staff participating in the different activities. We know reading broadens your language skills and knowledge, and has a huge impact on how students perform in exams. Reading is also a great hobby – to escape from the stresses of everyday life for a short period of time!. Our Library is full to capacity every day – early morning, break and lunchtime with pupils reading and discussing books, researching information or engaging in literacy activities – fantastic to see. Keep the reading going everyone!
We were delighted to open our new playground space this week – a much needed facility now that the playing pitch is closed for construction work. All of this of course is in preparation for the new school build, the start date which we hope to announce very soon.
It was a very busy week with Assessments for all Year Groups. I know the results will be very positive – looking forward to hearing about them.
Due to Assessment Week, we tend to not have too many activities occurring unless it is absolutely essential.
In looking to the future, Year 12 & Year 14 both heard about courses in SWC, and both Media and Drama Students attended a workshop in the Burnavon with BEAM.
Science practical examinations were carried out along with some Sports Studies and LLW Examinations. It’s that time already! Not too long now before the main written papers commence.
Have a great weekend.
