The students have settled in well completing their second week at the Academy.

In assembly on Monday, I talked to them about their dreams and aspirations explaining to them that all of us need to think about what we want to do in the future.  Dreams and aspirations tell us something about ourselves, what we can become in the future and where we are heading.  It is important for the students to have dreams and aspirations and I explained to them that these will grow, develop and change as they grow up.  Miss Pocock will be talking to all the students this week about their individual dreams and aspirations.  I had a great conversation with a student who dreams about being a doctor and she spent some time researching into the profession and what she needs to do to achieve her dream.

The students launched themselves into the array of extracurricular activities on offer at the academy.  It was fantastic to see them dancing with Shaun Dillon, our resident professional dancer; sharing their creative talents in our set design club and demonstrating great skills in Hockey, Netball and Football.  My week ended bumping into the students from the Latin Culture Club preparing for European day of languages which we will be celebrating on Wednesday.  The students were full of enthusiasm, joy and a love of languages as they explained to me the quiz they had been preparing.  It was 4.30pm on Friday and they were not in any rush to go home.

This week is a busy week for the Academy.  We have prospective parents’ evening on Tuesday from 5pm – 8pm.  Students will finish at 12.20pm so we can prepare for the evening; they need to be back at 4.30pm ready to show parents around or help out in different subjects.  School will start one hour later on Wednesday so the gates will open at 9am with the bell going at 9.25am.

I wish you an enjoyable week.
