    I must start with sharing my congratulations to Ms Barker who gave birth to a baby girl earlier this term. Both mother and baby are doing very well and I know the students will be looking forward to meeting her when she comes into school.

    I would like to welcome back the students who have had to isolate and congratulate them for the efforts they made to access their online learning during this time.  We will continue to keep the learning experience as smooth as possible for those forced to stay at home.

    Well, we have now completed our second full week of school. We were able to get our top award winners to Lillibrooke on Tuesday evening, where we shared afternoon tea and celebrated the fantastic achievements of those present. I know lots of you will be sad to hear that the formal speech day event at the Magnet will no longer take place but for those present, I hope you’ll agree that this more intimate event was a big improvement.

    A week of celebration this week. After a late night on Wednesday, the students came into school excited and buoyed by the many successes of our national football team. Those of us that remember the painful experiences of the past cannot quite believe it all and I am delighted that this generation only really knows successful English sports teams. As we continue to develop our leadership programmes here at Senior Girls, there are many lessons we can learn from Southgate, who is as close as you can get to Level 5 leadership. He has taken something good and is on the verge of making it great.

    Published 18/06/21, by Hayley Johnston

    This week, Mrs Ruddick delivered our assembly on the importance of keeping things in perspective. Watching Christain Erikson receive life-saving treatment on the field of play was unbelievable as none of us could quite believe what we were seeing. Mrs Ruddick used this as an example to remind us that there are far more important things in life - and it is essential we cherish all the moments we have with the ones we love. It was a powerful and critical message.
