“Busy times” March reflections from our Head Girl

Hi everyone!

I am sure you will agree that March has been a busy month for us all… As all of the Year 11s know, we have just finished our mocks and are starting to really focus on developing our skills in time for our GCSE’s. Firstly, I want to say thank you to the teachers for helping us all revise with different tips and techniques but mainly I want to recognise the effort that everyone is putting into their work. We are now knuckling down for our final exams, which are looming ever closer, but I am sure that the amazing support from our teachers and our own hard work will give us an advantage.

Myself and Deputy Head Girl, Lucy, are in the process of setting up a prom committee and we’re excited about the plans for this special Year 11 celebration. Tickets are £25 and deposits need to be paid by Parentmail before the Easter holidays, so don’t miss out!

March also marked National Careers Week, which included many different activities within our school community. We welcomed a guest speaker from the Royal Marines, who gave an amazing and educational cooking experience and Shaping Futures delivered a virtual session on decision-making. I know that Miss Goode is already in the process of organising more speakers to share their experience and advice with students.  You can find lots of useful resources and links in the careers area of our website.

Talking of careers, good luck to all of our Year 10 who are starting their work experience placements next week. I hope that you enjoy it and gain a lot from the opportunity.

The LRB had lots on for World Book Day, with a picture quiz, blind date with a book and also the daily dingbats, which are an interesting challenge to us all! Thank you to Michelle from Bear Hunt Books in Bebington, who came in to present vouchers she had donated to some of the competition winners.

I want to personally thank all the people who have come to our British Sign Language (BSL) club. It is great to see people coming together to enhance our school community and learn a new skill that can benefit others. On the final note, I would like to say good luck to all of the people who have entered the Public Speaking Competition, with topics ranging from Self expression to Plastic pollution. I am fortunate enough to be one of the judges for this year’s competition, so I look forward to seeing you there.

I hope that you all have a great last two weeks in school this term and a nice Easter break.

See you soon,

Phoebe
