In assembly this week, I discussed the importance of British Values such as Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect, and Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs; all of these values are at the heart of HAWI’s community and I am very proud of how HAWI students uphold these values and display them every day.
Our school council meetings are where student leaders come together and offer suggestions and ideas of how they would like to develop their academy. In the meeting before half term, they requested that we have a British Culture and Heritage Day which I think is a fantastic idea. The day will be Friday 8th July and as part of the development for the day, we will create a permanent display in the dining hall of the flags that represent the heritage of all of the students in the academy. Alongside this, students will create a Heritage Box (please see the details below) and we will have a bake sale of cakes / biscuits/sweets from around d the world. The student committee will be meeting every week and more details will follow.
The week of the 20th June is our Outdoor Activity Week.
I would like to thank the amazing staff at HAWI for putting together an outstanding programme and for committing to staying overnight in the Surrey Hills, at the coast in Dorset and in Wales. Alongside the residentials, there are plenty of day trips and activities on site. All the information has been sent home either via letter or published in the newsletter. Please ensure you have read all the information very carefully and your child knows where they should be and what equipment they should have for each day. If your child isn’t sure what they are doing, they should see their tutor next week.
Thank you for your continued support,
