Mr Wilding's Words Week 6
We returned to school on Monday morning to find a new pedestrian crossing feature across the driveway, and it did not take these four boys much time to work out precisely what needed to be done with that! The original photography of the Beatles in Abbey Road is pretty much embedded in most of our minds; this 2020 update reminds us all that life is indeed a journey and on occasion it’s a good idea to take the safety first approach.
I am delighted that we have been able to complete an excellent and very full six weeks of work. We’ve all had so much to learn, living as much outdoors as in, making friends once more and working the ‘best bubble’ we can. I feel sure parents and teachers are missing the personal interactions that assist in bringing our community together, and I do assure you that we are brainstorming how to best bring us together over the ‘digital’ bridge of @clairescourt.net that connects our working world.
We’ve a host of Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form out over the weekend completing their Bronze and Silver Expedition components of the Duke of Edinburgh award, and we’ll have more news on the next cohort opportunities in 2021 shortly. Suffice it to say that the opportunities to engage with physical recreation, volunteering and skills acquisition can continue despite ‘pandemic’, and acquisition of the award is still highly regarded by employers and universities alike.
