‘The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.’ H Jackson Brown Jr.
As we rapidly approach the Easter break, a lot of our Key Stage 4 and 5 students will be increasingly considering their exams and their future. Some may be worried about the exam schedule or not having enough time to revise or perhaps worried about the uncertainties which lie ahead. Time will pass very fast and all of a sudden we will be in the holiday and then, in the blink of an eye, we will be in the middle of the next half term and then finally sitting at a desk in an exam hall waiting for the examiner to say start.
But we are not there yet. We have time to consider and plan and work hard. We have time to ask questions and talk to friends, family and teachers that will go on this journey with you. One thing I do know is that the best preparation for these challenges is by making sure you are getting everything out of today that you need. Be the best version of you that you can be – today and every day. Don’t leave it until the break. Don’t leave it until half term or a week or night before the exam. Do it now so that when you pick up that envelope in August you can say that you gave it your best shot.
Thank you to all the staff and students this week who took part in the World Book Day activities, swapping books in the library and working with Lincolnshire’s Poet Laureate, Joel Stickley.
Congratulations to all of the winners of the Pasta King competition – If you haven’t tried the new selection of burritos and nachos, get yourself there at break and lunch because they are delicious!
We have had a lot of success on the sports field this week. Congratulations to the Year 8 netball, to the Year 8/9 rugby team, to the Year 7 rugby team who all won their matches against Priory LSST. Well played to all involved.
Year 5 students have joined us in our Design Technology department this week and showed a great amount of creativity and designs. I am delighted that you all enjoyed it and special thanks to the students and staff who helped out with this.
Thank you also to all of the Year 7 students, parents and carers who came to the Parents’ Evening last night. It was fabulous to see you all and I Iook forward to joining you on the Marrick priory trip this weekend and the one in two weeks.
Congratulations to David Taylor and his family for raising a total of £1100 for Marie Curie. An amazing effort which will fund over 55 hours of care. We are very proud of you all – thank you.
Congratulations to Kieran on gaining an apprenticeship with mundy’s Estate Agents and to Stephen for his work in the Buzz bar for his Duke of Edinburgh award – great efforts. Well done!
Thank you to all involved in the RAF Metheringham Air Field trip. The creative writing pieces which came out of this inspirational enrichment trip were fantastic.
I have also enjoyed seeing the pictures for the Year 8 German fashion show and receiving reports from the Year 9 Paris trip and Key Stage 4 trip to the Warwick Arts Centre. Thank you to all the staff involved in organising these trips and for ensuring our students have an inspiring learning experience at LCHS. I hope you enjoyed them and that you have had experiences which will stay with you for a long time.
Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to embrace every opportunity which comes your way.
