Headteacher's Weekly Message: 15th February 2019

Extended Learning Day February 2019

On Tuesday staff at Sarah Bonnell arranged a wide range ofbrilliant opportunities for students to learn and experience things beyond the normal curriculum. For example, students in Year 10 went on Careers Insight Visits to places like Davis Polk Law firm where they found out what it means to be a lawyer and the qualifications required to be successful in this profession. History students went on a walking tour of East London to learn about crime and punishment in Victorian England. Music students created a song they are going to enter for a national competition composing and performing all the music and writing, singing and rapping the lyrics in French. Students in Year 7 took part in Safer Internet Day activities led by our brilliant Year 10 Digital Leaders and Year 11 had some workshops on Relationships and Sex Education.  ELD visits and workshops are an important part of the Sarah Bonnell curriculum because they give students access to educational visits, guest speakers and a chance to immerse themselves in one topic for a whole day. Aim High 

Sarah Bonnell mark LGBTQ month  

The Sarah Bonnell Way begins with ‘Be Proud’ and one of the bullet points under this heading reads ‘We are proud of ourselves, our heritage and the school community’. I think this part of the school motto sits in line with the principles behind national LGBTQ month which remind us all of the importance of recognising, celebrating and being proud of the things that make us individuals in our own right including our gender identity. Be Proud

Sarah Bonnell take to the ski slopes of Austria

Our first ever ski trip set off today on their coach journey through France to the Austrian Alps. Mr Archer, Assistant Headteacher and Ms Clark, Deputy Headteacher have organised this opportunity to give students a chance to develop team work and communication skills as well learn an exciting new sport in a beautiful geographical landscape. Ski Safe and Ski Happy Sarah Bonnell
