Amanda Gorman is the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history and delivered a rousing rendition of a poem she wrote for the ceremony. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, I think it is definitely worth six minutes of your time to watch it: https:// She reminded me of the many passionate young people we have at Harris Academy Wimbledon who have a desire to share powerful and inspiring words, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the students back into school so we can hear their voices. The lines from the poem that stood out to me were: ‘For there is always light If only we’re brave enough to see it If only we’re brave enough to be it’ Amongst the challenges that we have faced in the pandemic there have been many moments of ‘light’ that we have seen from your children. I am incredibly proud of how they have approached their school work and attendance to remote learning has been over 95% every single day – that is amazing! Thank you very much for all your support and guidance in the background; we really appreciate it. Over half term, the students need to rest and try and be as screen free as possible. We hope that we only have two more weeks of remote learning and will be able to welcome the students back on the 8th March. As soon as we have confirmation from the government on the return to school plans, we will be in touch. In the meantime, I would like to wish you a safe and enjoyable half term. Best wishes, Mrs Larizadeh
