Dear students, parents and carers,
I have been in school every day this week and have managed to get into most assemblies and introduce myself to students. I have been impressed with their behaviour and attitudes at lunch time and it has been nice getting to chat to some of them. I will be returning on Monday 28th September full time and would like to thank Miss Jones for stepping up in my absence.
With the colder wet weather, it is important that students have coats to wear to keep them dry and warm. A little reminder – coats are still not permitted to be worn in the school building.
Last year, the school’s Student Council agreed that they wanted to do something to help fight climate change and reduce the school’s carbon footprint. They came up with a plan to plant 120 trees at the start of the school year for the next five years. Each year, the new Year 7 students will learn about the importance of planting more trees in the world and the total number of trees planted will eventually represent the 600 children in the school’s population.
I am pleased to let you know that the planting of the first 120 silver birch trees has started at the front of the school to form “Carisbrooke Copse.”
Well done to the top house point achievers for over the last two weeks:
Year 7 Destiny Charlton
Year 8 Efia Elliott
Year 9 Mackenzie Winslow
Year 10 Jessica Starkey
Year 11 Callum Jupe
Hope you have a lovely weekend; the weather is looking promising!
