We held a very successful Year 7 parents’ evening on Thursday and it was great to be able to chat with so many parents about all the excellent work Year 7 have been involved with so far this year. When you see me at any of our evenings or events, please feel free to stop me and share your thoughts about the school - I always value parental feedback and enjoy meeting new parents.
Year 7 have been working very hard this week, with 515 achievement points being earned. Individual points winners for the girls were Charlotte Mulhearn 7S with 16, Molly Fisher 7A with 11 and for the boys Josh Heathcote 7G, James Lee 7A and Jake Reece 7A all achieving 10. Brilliant work Year 7, keep it up! Miss Gallagher informed me that Year 7 pupils in Spanish sets 1-3 have worked exceptionally hard on their 50-word spelling test. The following students scored full marks on this very challenging test!
A huge congratulations to these pupils!
Also in Year 7, Mr Reardon told me his 7L class were learning about the liturgical year and the different colours associated with the different times of the Church's year and to give them a visual example, some dressed as priests! Please see the photo; very angelic boys!
Year 8 have also had a great week, with a number really standing out. Eleven pupils amassed 11 achievement points or more each over last couple of days. A special congratulations goes to Ciaran Prendergast in 8C who got the most this week with 14. Mrs Hollins’ form received the most overall, with 108. They have now also made it three weeks in a row with no late marks. Well done 8O!
In art, 8X2 are proving to be an exceptionally hard working and enthusiastic class. They are all producing excellent work and are a highly focused group who were able to contribute a great deal to our discussion on art and religion.
Extra credit should go to Sophie Barton for her hard work and skill at tonal shading. I've attached a picture of her Islamic inspired patterns for you to see this wonderful piece of work.
