Congratulations to 7Blue who performed an excellent assembly on Friday to the rest of Year 7 and their parents. They explored how kindness breeds happiness and spent two weeks researching and writing the script before presenting us with a very polished performance. I was very impressed with their confidence and enthusiasm as they communicated some very important messages about how we make a difference to everyone around us.
Last week was a very busy week. We started the week by discussing how we respect and celebrate diversity and the students said 'Good Morning' in over twenty different languages. I am delighted with how the students have settled into life at the Academy; they are always exceptionally polite and support each other to do well. Individuality is very important to us and we want students to be proud of their differences.
We had two football teams playing against other schools, a group of students who started a five week 'more able' Science project at Kings College School (KCS) and we welcomed four sixth formers and their teacher from KCS to work with 7M in Latin for the rest of this term. It is great to see Year 7s getting the opportunity to work with sixth formers from another school. In addition, we welcomed over 200 visitors during our open mornings.
Thank you to everyone who purchased books this week. I was delighted to see so many excited and enthusiastic students reading books at both break time and lunch time. We have raised over £450 from the book fair which will help us build and develop our library.
I am looking forward to 7Red's assembly on Friday, seeing our netball leaders running a competition on Tuesday, our School Council going for training and our sports teams in action again. All in all, it is looking like a typically busy week at Harris Academy Wimbledon!
