Week Ending 27th April 2018

Posted on: 27/04/2018

 

Dear Parents, Carers,

 

We are now entering the exam season, with our Art GCSEs commencing yesterday and the languages speaking exams commencing next week.   Lunchtime revision sessions have been taking place and students are well prepared for their exams.  We wish our students all the best.

 

This week a selection of our Year 7 students and WGSG students attended the School of Rock Musical in London along with Mr Palmer, our music teacher.  The students enjoyed the show and it has inspired the department to think of a joint concert!  Watch this space!

The remaining group of Year 7s attended the Tower of London trip this week, as their planned visit was postponed last month due to the snow days.

On Thursday students were told of their Enrichment week activity which is currently being uploaded to Parent Pay and should hopefully be live by Monday.  Your son met with their activity leader and was given more information on their activity.

Only the Darwin gang turned up to the Rowing! Great for them, not so good for the other forms I’m afraid. -10 points to all forms apart from 7D and 8D.

A few shifts in positions, especially in Year 7 and 8 after the poor attendance. Poor attendance and a rival winning (a net change of -40 points) is worse than a rival winning and your team coming last (-24) and is so crucial, long term, in this league.

Telford responding with a roar in the Year 10 handball going undefeated and in joint 1st position with Newton, yet Telford have 1 match left to play…Telford only have to draw against Darwin today and hope Stevenson don’t win both their games or this could be a 3-way tie for 1st with Newton, Stevenson! Anything could happen!

 

Kind regards,
