Congratulations to Callen, Lucrezia, Ellie, Lara, Zoha, Emmerson, Inaya, Raulis, Pearl and Basan who have been elected by their peers to be the first members of the school council.  They all wrote a few sentences about their achievement and Pearl said “School council is a complete honour.  I love it.  I’ve found something I love to do and I finally feel like I belong”.  In their first meeting, the school council discussed the names for the houses and have decided that they will be named after famous historical figures who have lived in Wimbledon and the surrounding area.  They will now liaise with their class to decide on the name for each house.  Watch this space for the announcement. We will announce the senior prefects this week.

On Tuesday, we had Prospective Parents’ Evening and welcomed 650 visitors to the Academy.  All Year 7 stayed behind to help with the evening and I am very proud of them all; they were polite, informative, enthusiastic and received compliments from all our visitors. Emmerson, Inaya and Reuben spoke confidently in the talk giving information about our enrichment curriculum, extra-curricular activities and transition programme.

Mr Riches picked 14 students to represent the academy at the first football match against Trinity School.  Even though they lost their first match the team played with enthusiasm and skill. Taio was man of the match.

This week we will be celebrating National Poetry week.  We have our first pastoral meeting for parents and the inaugural meeting of the Wimbledon Parents’ Association (WPA).  We would love to see all of the parents at both events.  Please email reception@harriswimbledon.org.uk to reserve your place.

Homework is now being set every day.  Please support the students by checking what homework they have and ensuring they complete it by the deadline.  Remember the library is open and staffed every day until 4.30pm for students to complete their homework.

We have two open mornings this week and have inset day on Friday.  The Academy is closed on Friday which gives the students plenty of time to do some excellent homework.

I wish you an enjoyable week.
