Message from the Principal, Dave Horan

 

Greetings Parents/Guardians,

 

One Wednesday I enjoyed a 'Learning Walk' around the Secondary School. It started off with a Year 10 assembly where students from Miss Bonnett's Home Room had been tasked with a group project. They presented a video reflecting on their recent examinations. It was well planned and executed, funny and contained a number of important messages. It set the bar high for the other Year 10 groups who will no doubt follow in other assemblies. It also highlighted the value of appropriate group work, leadership and the value of this pastoral time.

 

I then welcomed to the school the adventurer Adrian Hayes (http://adrianhayes.com/ ) who spoke to two Year 10 Global Citizenship classes and one Year 9 Citizenship class. Do take a look at his website.

 

My next stop was the Sports Hall where the Bermuda Robotics Competition was underway. Mr. Totten and other 'robotics' teachers as well as a number of our Year 12 students were supporting the growing event.

 

Not forgetting a number of on-task lessons I visited; Mrs. Friesen had a group of her Year 9 General Music students rehearsing in the PPMH for the concert yesterday evening. Including them in the concert is a first for us and were well worth listening to. On that note my congratulations to the Music Department for the Summer Music Concert – again the large number of junior musicians, the quality and variety on display is impressive.

 

Moving onto Secondary staffing changes for next year I have the following promotions and changes to announce:
· I mentioned a few weeks back that Mr. Woods will be taking over as Head of Sixth Form next year.
· Mrs. Jackson's role as IB Co-Ordinator broadens to Director of Sixth Form Studies which encompasses the BETC pathway we now have in the Sixth Form and all things academic in that area.
· Miss Cummins will be taking over the Head of Key Stage 3 role with Mrs. Thompson moving back to Canada with her family.
· Miss Leeks and Mr. Mitchell take up newly created Assistant Head of Key Stage 3 positions.
· Mrs. Ingham is sharing her History expertise with the Secondary next year and will be teaching this to Year 7.
· and finally Mrs. Kolia takes over as Head of the Humanities Department.

 

Enjoy the sailing over the weekend.
