This morning we held the election hustings for Head Boy and Head Girl.  It was a fantastic event with all the candidates delivering inspiring speeches communicating how they would like to represent the students.  I am very proud of how the candidates presented themselves.  I am also very proud of all the other students who listened intently and then placed their vote for Head Boy and Head Girl.  We talked about democracy and the importance of equality, freedom and the right to vote. 

Earlier in the week, we had a lot more to be proud of.  Eighteen students represented the Academy at the Merton Borough Sports Competition.  We have some very talented students and it was great to see 7 students achieve medals:

Gold: 100m race – Mutasim. Shotput – Dominique.

Silver: Boys’ Relay – Josh, Lawrence, Reece, Mutasim. Long Jump – Natalie & Ashlee.

Bronze: Shot put – Natalie.

Excitement is building for our school production of High School Musical which is being performed next week.  It is a story about two students in rival cliques who have to battle against other students, resist peer pressure and ‘not stick to the status quo’ to achieve their dreams.  If you haven’t got your tickets already, be sure not to miss out on an enjoyable evening at the theatre.

We welcomed poet and rapper Breis to the academy a few weeks ago.  The workshops were truly inspirational and all the students wrote their own poem or rap during the day.  This Friday we have an open mic session in the library where students can come along and perform their own creative writing.  We plan to publish the best ones in our first Anthology of the Spoken Word at Harris Academy Wimbledon. 

Alongside all of these events and activities, students continue to work hard in all their lessons and make excellent academic progress.  We have had a number of visitors to the academy in the last few weeks and they have all been very impressed with the resilience and hard work of everyone in the academy.  We continue to put ‘make a difference’ at the centre of everything we do, ensuring we make a difference to our own lives and the lives of everyone around us.
