Week 3

Week 3 – Friday 11th September 2020

Another week over and since we started the new school year three weeks ago, it has been so busy. Positive energy is flowing everywhere – classes are engaged in their learning, coursework dates are being scheduled and there is a continuous effort on ensuring that the basic principles are being followed, eg punctuality, uniform, presentation etc, in addition to all the health and safety measures we have in place.

We are delighted to welcome our new School Nurse, Malou Valdez, who commenced on Monday 7th. Malou has adapted well to life in the College and has certainly been extremely busy all week. We wish her every happiness during her time in the College.

The poems written by each Year 8 Form Class during their Transition Scheme have now been printed out on the large wooden cut-out figures and placed in each Form Class. They make great reading – well done Year 8!. Year 8 also have their CAT Assessments on Monday 14th, but there’s no need to panic or prepare for them – simply do your best and read each question carefully.

We are currently preparing our Nurture Provision to be available to Years 8,9 and 10. This provision is so necessary for the wellbeing of many of our younger pupils, who already face so many other challenges in their young lives before they are ready to engage in learning. The work which our Nurture Team carry out is invaluable.

And that’s it folks – another week over.

Have a great weekend
