Mr Wilding’s Words Lent 10
I have written directly to parents in our community and posted on my blog our general arrangements and plans to the end of term, and I am delighted that we were able to bring forward our end of term assembly and awards to pupils to this Friday morning.
Year 7 scientists prove to be remarkable sleuths; the picture shows Mrs Walton’s arrest at assembly by PC Rob Bowen, with a very cheerful Mrs Tarr (whose cola had been stolen in the first place). Parents can find the link to the presentation shown at our Academic Assembly here. Hopefully our other plans for the day, including the issue of Chromebooks to those who have requested one will go well. Please see in the notes below more details on property collection from school next week.
More generally across all the sites, we are taking the opportunity to capture as many images and stories as we can from this last day in the school for some time, and you will be able to find the Claires Court End of Lent Term 2020 Showreel here. The photo story will take some time to build over the next few days.
The many and various charity efforts have had a few cancellations through the week, but the boys have made the most of the opportunities despite the need to be careful. Never have so many shoes been shined so well, and the Year 10 FIFA competition was perhaps the largest single fundraiser; Mr Young has this to say….
“The inaugural Senior Boys Champions League has been running for 8 days with 16 teams from years 7, 8, 10 and 11 competing for the title of the school's best. With the bidding process and the sweet shop the Year 10s have raised over £645. Sadly like all great sporting events the tournament is now on hold, fingers crossed a champion can be crowned at a later date.”
And finally, we made our formal farewells to Year 11, whose GCSE final year has gone so well so far, and to Mrs Sharon Walton, our amazing Head of Biology who retires this summer. Of course we expect both perhaps to be back in school by the end of the Summer Term, but who can tell….
