Headteacher's Weekly Message: 14th September 2018

One Vision-One Team-One Voice

Form Time and Motivate Me Monthly

Aliyah Irabor-York, Headgirl for 2018-2019, has been getting the year off to a great start by talking in assembly about her idea to introduce a ‘Motivate Me Monthly’ which will include activities, speakers, books and events suggested by students across the school to keep them inspired, motivated and thinking. This fits in well with our focus this year on making Form Time a great start to each day and Ms Sangster, Deputy Headteacher, and Ms Biltcliffe, Curriculum Leader for PSHCE, shared the benefits of this in assembly this week

Run the River – Headgirl racing ahead with the support of her teacher, Mr Walsh

On Tuesday 18 September Aliyah will be running in a high-profile fundraising event ‘Run the River’ for the charity TeachFirst. Aliyah supports the charity TeachFirst and was recently interviewed about this. She said ‘When a charity wants to help children, not just through donating money but by training teachers, I think it’s fantastic, and that’s what I love most about TeachFirst.’ Good Luck Aliyah and Mr Walsh, Progress Leader for Year 7 and Teach First alumni, who will be running alongside Aliyah.  Be Proud
