Mr Wilding’s Words Lent 4
Year 7 boys had their first day ‘show day’ on Open Morning this Wednesday; they made an incredibly good job of showing around 30+ sets of visitors, who complimented them on their knowledge, their humour and their positive passion for their school. Thanks boys - you made us #ccproud.
The joy that ‘The Gambian dinner’ supplied all those who attended was really quite unexpected; sure we enjoyed a lovely curry night courtesy of Gandhi’s plus lots of good company and some successful fundraising. What was totally unexpected was the major audience participation encouraged by High Wycombe based West African drumming band, Hartbeats.
The major school assemblies this week have focussed on the actions that we as members of the school community can take to redress elements of humanity’s dark side. #WeRemember on Monday illustrated how important it is to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution, and in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. On Thursday, Business Studies students presented on the vexed issue of Globalisation, highlighting both its benefits and downsides, illustrating the importance of knowing the True Cost of solutions and purchases we may make.
Scholarships were a huge success on Friday and Saturday last week, with over 100 candidates applying for a range of subject areas.
It’s obviously with no pleasure I report the school was closed because of snow today - teachers have posted work and ‘tickled’ their Classrooms so that not all is ‘lost’ today, and for anyone with some time to spare, please post your Snowman pictures on the Showreel running here - https://goo.gl/eyvWw9.
