I hope that everyone in the school community had a great Christmas and New Year. 

The break was very much needed to ‘recharge the batteries’ for the term ahead.  Even though we have only been back in school for two weeks, there has been so much going on in school.  We held an extremely successful Year 11 Parents’ Evening last night, with almost 95% attendance.  I would like to thank those parents for showing the commitment to come into school on a cold and rainy Thursday night to discuss the progress of their sons or daughters at this crucial stage of their last year in school.  There was a great atmosphere around school and it was lovely to hear from parents who really appreciated the level of care, attention and support that the staff invest in their children.  It is the strength of relationship we enjoy with our parent body that makes our school such a special place.

Mrs Hall told me that 8A did an excellent assembly this week. It was great to see so many people involved. Mr Kennedy has said that everyone in the form contributed in some way to this. 8L were being very helpful and kind this week for Mr O’Callaghan. Well done to 8H who achieved the most achievement points, keep up the good work. Well done to 8S and 8M who achieved no behaviour points this week, great work. Well done to 8G who got 100% attendance this week and had no late marks. James C (8M), and Ryan C (8L) did a brilliant speaking presentation in French on Wednesday. Mrs McGoldrick was very impressed! Très bien!

Mrs Cole told me that the Historians of the Week are Makenzie W 8O, for producing a superb homework on the British Empire. Alex T, 9A, for making outstanding contributions in his first Holocaust lesson and Keelan D, 11O, for achieving a much improved result on two Past Paper Questions.
