Head's Blog 1st December 2017
The past few weeks have been very busy, with lots going on around school. On the 6th of November we were visited by Holocaust survivor, Tomi Komoly. It was an honour to hear him talk about his experiences, and the students found the chance to talk to him very valuable.
On the 10th of November, we held our Remembrance Service. This is always a moving event, and we are very grateful to the British Legion for joining us.
We have had a lot to celebrate recently. It was fantastic to welcome back last year’s Year 11 for our Certificate Evening, and hear what they have all been up to since leaving us. The night was a real triumph for the students themselves and for us as a school, celebrating our best results ever.
We were given an award for our leadership of the Emotionally Healthy Schools Project too. It is humbling to know that all our hard work is really making a difference in our local community and beyond.
I would also like to say congratulations to two of our students; Molly Blears was selected for the England Karate Team last month, and Sam Escourt has been chosen to play for the Deaf Youth Football Team. I look forward to hearing all about your success.
The 17th of November saw our annual Children in Need fun and games. From staff in detention, to voting to gunge a teacher it was a great day all round, raising £512.28 of vital funds for a worthy cause. Year 8 are enjoying a non-uniform day today, as a result of raising the most money as a year group.
We ran a collection for selection boxes recently, and it was wonderful to hand 550 of them over to St Luke’s Hospice for their Santa’s Grotto. The kindness and generosity of our students and their families, never ceases to amaze me; this has been highlighted again, by the fact that we only launched our 3rd annual collection for Middlewich Foodbank yesterday, and we already have a huge amount of donations.
We have a lot to look forward to over the next few weeks, with the Christmas period upon us.
Have a great weekend.
