It has been great to see the academy full of life this week. The students have been brilliant. They have quickly settled back in to their lessons and have been a pleasure to chat to. Today we recognised International Women’s Day which was on Monday 8th March by wearing a pink ribbon and reflecting on the women who have inspired us.
It has been so lovely to read about how many students have been inspired by their mum. Here are some of their comments:
‘My mum because she is a confident person who has raised me well. She has taught me everything I know and she is the greatest woman I know’
‘My mum because she is always happy and believes in herself’
‘My mom because she inspires me to be different and stand out’
These are just three comments from many. Congratulations to all the mums who do a brilliant job every single day.
Next week, we will celebrate Red Nose Day. Donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It will be mufti day and students can purchase red noses (which will be interesting to wear with a mask!), pin badges and awareness bands for £1. The Heads of house have been working with their teams to set up some stalls at lunch time – all the details are in the newsletter so if you can support with any donations, it will be appreciated.
I have sent a letter home today outlining the details of the next phase of the lateral flow testing which is where students do the tests at home on a Sunday and Wednesday. More details are in the letter which you can find here
Thank you for all your support in getting the students back to school.
My warmest wishes for a lovely weekend,
