WEEK 28 - Friday 30 April 2021
Hello and welcome to the Year 10 Blog.
Manners, Respect, Communication and Peer Relationships.
These are keywords and topics which I believe are of the utmost importance. Over the next few weeks we will continue to look at these topics in detail and will have, for the first time in a long time, a Year Group Assembly. Unbelievably, it has been over a Year since I have held an assembly and I look forward to being able to stand in front of my Year Group and talk about these topics (albeit staggered and with reduced numbers - but it is a start!).
It is always pleasing to hear a “good morning”, or a “how are you, sir?” first thing in the morning and I am always impressed with the manners displayed by my Year Group. It is funny that something as simple as a ‘smile’ or a cheery “good morning” can brighten someone's day.
With so much negativity and pain displayed within the media it is often hard to see all the good and positive things that are also happening, and how these individual acts of kindness can have such a positive impact on others.
Once again I must ask that you reiterate the importance of wearing a face covering, washing hands regularly and remaining within their year group bubbles. Over the past week, I have noticed for the first time students requesting to have a replacement face mask and even providing face masks for those that have forgotten to bring their own. As you can imagine this is not sustainable and I again ask that you remind your child/children to bring their own face mask.
Take care and stay safe.
