Mr Rayer's Words Autumn 2
It is always good to complete the first week successfully and I thank my Academic and Administrative Staff for helping to ensure such a smooth start.
Today, Friday 15 September, in conjunction with the National Trust at Cliveden, we created a unique educational experience for our Year 7 pupils. The two banks of the River at Cliveden were once connected by a small chain ferry, which last operated in 1956. Today, with the support of the Maidenhead Sea Cadets, the ferry was temporarily reopened by the Claires Court Outdoor Education Department, carrying our pupils across the River Thames. Other activities during the day included soldier history tales in the WWI war cemetery , creative art in the Long Garden, ‘visiteering’ with the Trust’s gardeners and team building together up and around the water garden and maze. We hope the boys and girls have enjoyed meeting up, learning more about each other, making friends and winning points for their Houses.
I wish all teams good luck tomorrow against Gordon's school.
My thanks to the Year 11 boys who helped with my assembly on Thursday, the issue of Sexting has surfaced and we all need to work together to ensure the boys fully understand the dangers that this can bring. Year 11 Academic Mentoring is progressing next week and I look forward to meeting parents there.
Speech Day next Thursday as always promises to be a special occasion, details are in the bulletin.
A reminder that a week Monday Year 8 are off to Lulworth Cove/ Osmington Bay for their Geography/Teambuilding experience, lets hope for good weather.
