After all the compromises our children have had to endure during Covid, it is great that our extra-curricular provision and learning outside the classroom is back to where it was.
Launch events for our Rugby, Netball and Football Tour of South Africa, the next trip to the Azores and the Drama department’s production of Romeo and Juliet have taken place recently. Year 9 have been on their Geography fieldwork this week and Y8 are on fieldwork next week. All Year 7 children had a great team-building day at Hillier’s Gardens. PE recently had the welcome problem of over 90 children joining their after school trampoline sessions!
Thank you to all my colleagues who offer these opportunities and to parents for supporting this really important part of learning and each child’s development. Colleges and employers are looking not just for great exam grades but also the wider attributes encapsulated in our 3DCurriculum: Tolerance, Curiosity, Excitement, Independence, Leadership, Communication, Problem-solving, Creativity, Compassion, Resilience, Co-operation and Thoughtfulness

Top Tip - Sustainable cities and communities
Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities

What can we do to achieve this goal?
World Habitat Day took place on Monday 3 October 2022 and the motto this year is "Mind the gap - leave no one and no place behind." The United Nations is encouraging us to look after our cities and towns and make sure they are safe and inclusive areas. We can do all our bit by celebrating diversity and being kind to each other.
If you’ve ever wanted to boldly go to infinity and beyond, or to a galaxy far, far away, you can start by sending balloons across your living room in this week’s 'Do Try This at Home'.
