‘As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.’ John F. Kennedy
What an amazing week! There has been so much going on in school recently, I can’t believe only a week has passed. We got off to a flying start with the amazing careers and financial awareness day and workshops. What a fabulous day, where we had businesses, colleges and a huge variety of support and advice from many of the city’s trades, businesses and entrepreneurs. I am so grateful to those businesses who gave up their time and expertise to help support our students. The sports hall was full of displays, brochures, leaflets, books and challenges and the feedback I received from the students and from the visitors is that they all enjoyed the experience and gained a lot from it. I would also like to pass on special thanks to all of the Year 9 team for their hard work but in particular to Mrs Beeson for organising such a great enrichment activity.
Then on the same day, we learn that Archie, Jack and Nathan were competing in the District Schools’ Competition at LCA, and despite the rain, Jack got a third place in 1500m and Archie got first place in the 800m. Well done gentlemen - we are all very proud of you.
As if this weren’t enough, we also hosted the regional final of the Poetry Slam. A number of schools came together to compete for this year’s title of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 champions and the quality of the entries from all schools was stunning. Davindar, Finlay, Charlotte, Mia, Katie and Natalia were absolutely fabulous and represented our school exceptionally well. We have also just heard that Davindar, Finlay and Charlotte are through to the next round! Many congratulations and good luck in the final. Thank you to all involved.
I also enjoyed reading about the Year 7 Geographers who were arguing their case for a new motorway at a town meeting and have appreciated the Year 9 artwork in Biology courtyard on ‘Rivers of the World’. I would also like to pass on my congratulations to two of our 6th formers, Cade and Charlotte who have received awards at the Old Lincolnians Dinner at the weekend for their outstanding contribution to LCHS.
With so much going on every day, our whole community is something we are all very proud of, as we are ambitious with our dreams and encourage others to be the best versions of themselves they can be. Nothing is out of your reach – dream big, work hard and you will get a step closer every day.
Challenge, learn, conquer.
Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to buy your tickets for the concert at the Drill Hall to help Rhys and his family fulfil his dream of visiting New York. Details and links are on the website and twitter.
