I hope you have all had an enjoyable and successful first week back after half-term. The start of any new term or half-term is special. It brings with it a freshness, a new opportunity, a sense of purpose and positivity which must be optimised if we are to continue to make great progress. This half-term will present new challenges and opportunities. Will you accept the challenge to make excellent progress every day and in every lesson? Will you accept the challenge to turn the things which have not been as successful so far this year into your strengths?
Already this week we have seen hundreds of students taking these opportunities with many taking part in the Readathon, Year 10s gaining their hygiene certificate, Year 8 students exploring Jewish family life, the Year 7 languages students of the term, the students who won the letter writing competition, the launch of the peri-peri range in the Buzz bar, Erin Gilbey being short listed for the National Writing Competition, Year 9 students having a great time on the Paris trip, Oliver being selected to represent Lincolnshire schools Cross Country, the students involved in the reading for life programme, the preparations for World Book Day, the Year 11 students’ success with their American West homework, not to mention that we are looking forward to meeting polar explorer Ben Saunders in school next week!
Amazing things are happening all around you. Make sure you are a part of it!
Enjoy your weekend.
