We held a very successful Open Evening on Wednesday, I was so proud of all the pupils who came back to help out. I received some lovely emails from parents who were extremely impressed with our Year 11 prefects who showed them around - they are a credit to their families and to the school. I always say our pupils are the school’s best advert and this statement was never truer than on Wednesday! Well done to all pupils who helped - a fantastic effort by all!
I would like to thank all parents and grandparents who supported the Year 7 Welcome Mass at St Oswald’s on Friday morning celebrated by Fr John and Deacon John. It was a great occasion to be part of and the best possible way to welcome our new pupils to the school.
Well done to Molly Blundell (10B2) who ran the ‘5km Colour Run’ for charity at Pennington Country Park on Sunday 25th September; she looks very colourful!!
Year 8 students continue to get involved with all aspects of school life. Students have achieved 97% attendance and a staggering 757 achievement points this week - well done everyone!
A special mention goes to the following students who have made an excellent start to The Year 8 Challenge: Ashling Toner and Ethan Smith 8A, Ella Brown and Dominic Shaw 8B, Abbey Brown and Reiss Harvey 8G and Caitlin Morgan and Jack Adamson 8L. Keep up the good work!
Another congratulations is in order for 8G and 7G who won Friday’s Inter-House Maths Competition. Look out for other inter-house events and try to get involved! All involvement will be recognised on The Year 8 Challenge.
And finally, the Year 8 leader boards…
Well done to 8H who lead this week’s achievement points total with an amazing 120 points! Well done for all of your efforts 8H. Congratulations to 8W who have received 0 behaviour points this week - it would be great to see other forms following this exemplary standard of behaviour. 8A have superb attendance this week with a fantastic 99.58% and they are also the only form to have not received a late mark this week - huge congratulations, 8A! Congratulations also to the top three individual achievement point winners: in first place Gemma Unsworth, 8C with 15 points, in second place, Ashling Toner 8A with 14 points and in third place, Tyler Jones 8H, Gemma Rudd 8B and Lily Webster 8S, with 12 points. A fantastic achievement!
Keep working hard Year 8, just three weeks of The Year 8 Challenge to go!
