Parents and Students
Thursday afternoon after school I had the opportunity to speak to our Sixth Form
student leaders, who had gathered to discuss and review their roles and
responsibilities as prefects for our school. It can be difficult to find time
to meet and talk with students as much as I might like to, as meetings and
other school related matters take up so much time during school hours.
what has been a very busy and challenging week, Thursday proved to be a
highlight for me. I was able to visit several classrooms, watch the house
sports competition and spend some time with a terrific group of young people
who wanted to understand more about the challenges of leadership. It reinforced
for me what a great school we have and how much we should be proud of our
students and our staff. I look forward to seeing our athletes compete at the
annual ISAC Athletics event on Saturday 1st March. Congratulations
to Scott who were narrow winners over Muir on Thursday, closely followed by
Fleming and Fairfield.
is so much more to look forward to this term. The Sixth Form charity dinner is
on 28th March and always proves to be a wonderful evening of
entertainment. With young leaders of the calibre I spent time with this week, I
have no doubt that it will be a great success once again. With PR#3 soon to be
issued and Year 10 GCSE and Year 12 A level subject options to be confirmed, we
know we are heading into the later stages of another school year.
It was good to see a number of parents at the Parent Portal presentation at the Primary Campus on Friday morning. The new website, with the recent addition of the portal, has
significantly enhanced the quality of our communication to the community and
beyond and I commend the excellent work done by all of the staff involved,
particularly Anna White.
Secondary Campus class photographs are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of
next week and our international week is the week commencing Monday 3rd
