WEEK 30 - Friday 14 May 2021

Hello and welcome to this week’s Year 10 Blog.

Over the past week we have been focusing on one of the Hessle values - Resilience.

What is resilience? The Oxford English Dictionary defines resilience as, “The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness” but I ask, “is it more than that?” I believe so.

Here at Hessle we interpret resilience as “being determined, not giving up when things get tough. To persevere, even when the odds are stacked against you. Having the understanding that learning and life can be hard, but we persevere”.

Being resilient is integral for your child to be able to cope with life’s ups and downs, and young people who are resilient are much better at coping with difficult situations, having that ability to ‘bounce back’.

The resilience shown by so many of the young people within Year 10 over the past fourteen months has been incredible. They (we all) have been through so much and we can not underestimate the importance of continuing to support our young people. We can not always prevent our children from experiencing tough times but we can certainly give them the tools to meet adversity with resilience and stoicism.

As we say goodbye to the Year 11s and the focus shifts onto preparing the Year 10s for their final year in school, being ready and having resilience is going to be paramount. 

If you are concerned about your child or you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me: hoyyear10@hessleacademy.com

Take care and stay safe.
