We have had another action-packed week in school; as always, thank you for your ongoing support.
On Friday 15th November, as part of the Children in Need appeal, some pupils completed a sponsored walk. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored our pupils. As a result of your generosity, the school raised £150.
Anderson had their first social timetabled event on Wednesday. They worked with Mr Hamlet our Military Mentor to build dens in their garden. The task developed team building and logical thinking skills. Well done Anderson and thank you to Mr Hamlet for organising the afternoon.
It has been pleasing to hear from our pupils who are earning our Friday Reward trips. They report that they have had an excellent time on their rewards. The new Horse Riding Reward has been a great success. Pupils can earn a place on the rewards by earning 3 or more Star of the Days in a week.
Pupils have been working very hard in PE this week. They have been building their table tennis skills. Miss Wood has reported how sensible pupils are being in their PE lessons.
Well done to Macauley in Year 11. He has had several posts on the Wall of Fame this week. This demonstrates his dedication to his exam work, he has even been working on extra qualifications outside of school.
Our school election campaign is well underway. Pupils have been busy putting together applications to the School Council. Some pupils have even been making posters to help them to get more votes. The voting will happen on the 12th of December in school. We will be having our very own polling station to make it as real to the actual event as possible.
Well done to every pupil who has earned Star of the Day this week and well done to Callum, Grace, Jess and Macauley who have earned Star of the Week.
