On Tuesday and Wednesday we held two brilliant evenings for our pupils to perform at our Music Festival - they were fantastic!  I am really looking forward to the final one this Wednesday when the singers get their chance.  We held a very successful Year 8 parents’ evening on Thursday and it was great to chat to lots of parents. I look forward to more opportunities to discuss our pupils during the rest of the year.

Mr Reardon told me that Year 8 have had another great week, with teachers recognising all the hard work that the year group has put in, with the achievement point total reaching 670. A particular congratulations has to go to 8W this week, for having 100% attendance and recording no behaviour points. Well done! A great group effort. In terms of individual achievements, Aryce Rayo has topped the leader board with 13 points, followed closely in second place by Jacob Blears. Excellent work boys!

Easter eggs for raffleMrs Landor told me that her room is being rapidly overtaken with raffle prizes!  Year 9 are busy fundraising throughout Lent for the Year 9 charity and for the Good Shepherd Appeal. 9C1 are selling tickets for a Mother's Day hamper, which includes some fancy stationery and smellies! This will be drawn on Friday 24th March. The Year 9 IMPACT group are selling tickets for a chocolate raffle, with multiple prizes available (one pictured). This will be drawn during the last week of term.  All tickets are 30p each, or you can buy a strip for £1. Representatives will be visiting forms to sell tickets, or pupils may purchase them from Mrs Landor in RE2 at break and lunch.  Keep up the great work Year 9!

Miss Foster told me that her Year 9 class have produced some great work this week.  The first image shows an outstanding storyboard about the eruption of Mt St Helen's by Chloe Cunniffe. Storyboard about the eruption of Mt St Helen's

The second is an excellent presentation about solar energy from Elizabeth Crean in Year 8, plus the rest of her group.
