Mrs Heywood's Words Lent 4
On Monday evening I was delighted to hear that we had beaten Pipers Corner (my old school), with the U13A team winning 16 -10, and the B team 6 - 5. As ever I am so impressed with how the PE Department juggle all their fixtures and in preparing this promising squad for their upcoming ISA National Netball Finals in York later this term.
Year 10 artists visited Tate Britain on Tuesday and we hope that the inspiration gained from seeing the work of the world’s greatest artists will give them that extra motivation as they continue with their GCSE courses.
On Monday we shall have a special assembly to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. It is always a sombre and somewhat challenging assembly as our young people are asked to look back and consider the genocide that has been visited on some many people, in so many countries, in so many periods of history. Holocaust Memorial Day began to specifically remember the millions of Jewish people who were murdered during the 2nd World War, but now also asks us to not forget the genocides that have occurred in Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia and Darfur since that time.
We are inviting parents into school on Thursday evening to listen to the Drugs Awareness Talk by Bob Tait following on from the G9 & 10 presentation to pupils in the morning. The presenter Bob Tait will cover topics connected with specific illicit drugs and legal substance misuse, knowledge of the short and long term consequences of misuse (Addiction and Dependency), updating parental knowledge on current trends, signs & symptoms of drug use and a question and answer session. The evening will run from 7.00pm to 8.30pm. Light refreshments will be available from 6.45pm and the venue will be at Senior Boys. I hope that you will be able to attend this useful and informative evening and I look forward to seeing you there.
We wish our 24 cross country runners good luck at the ISA London West Competition on Friday 2 February at Sherfield.
