Mrs Heywood's Words Autumn 12
On this day in Science ......
In Senior School we are having our final drive for the last part of the term and please check out the new science board located in the atrium displaying all the work completed in their lessons over the last two weeks.
Year 11 are towards the end of their Mock Examinations, reports are being written and checked and pupils will get a chance to read and reflect on them on our last day. Following that reflection they are asked to set themselves some targets based upon the areas within the Attitude to Learning descriptors. Tutors will then remind them of those targets when we return in January.
Congratulations to Caitlin and Jemimah who successfully took part in the ISA Swimming Nationals at the Olympic Park at the weekend bringing home five medals between them and helping the squad achieve success on the day as they were crowned champions for yet another year - with lots of new records being set!
Please take time to read this inspirational article (see link below) about Georgia current Y12 pupil, who overcame a serious brain injury 18 months ago stripping her of her independence, leading to paralysis, loss of memory and many months of gruelling physio and treatments, until finally she got the diagnosis of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND). Georgia’s dedication and perseverance in the face of adversity is an example to us all.
Last week, eleven of our G10 GCSE Food Studies pupils took part in the Springboard FutureChef Competition. The sun shone, the wind blew, the hospitality sparkled and the competition was as fierce as the heat in the room. Our best emerging chefs over the two days were Seren and Ariel and we looking forward to tastings their desserts in the next round.
Mr Gravett tells me we are in for a treat at the Christmas Performance Platform on Tuesday 11, we are all looking forward to the Christmas Lunch on Friday 14 December and don’t forget to feel festive on the day by digging out your Christmas Jumper.
The Christmas trees are up and decorated (thank you G7 )and the Christmas Hamper Boxes are filling up! We would still like to encourage families to check and see if they have and old coats, hats and scarves for the Winter Coat Collection run by our the Brett Foundation in Maidenhead.
