In the Summer of 2013, nine students, along with three teachers, visited Ethiopia to complete voluntary work with a school in Gondar. The trip, allowed both for an insight for our students into the poverty that exists around the world, and for us to see the beauty of the culture and the country. Since returning, as a group, the students have been supporting three students at the school we visited, helping them to buy the clothes and equipment they need for their education. We periodically raise money for this cause, and this Christmas are selling decorations (click on the image for the link) for this purpose. We are grateful for any support you can provide. Best Wishes and a Merry Christmas Students and Staff who visited Ethiopia
May I begin my message this week with a huge thank you to all of the students (and staff) who have taken part in the National Christmas Jumper Day in aid of the charity Save the Children (which we support through Ratcliffe House). As you will see from the photographs we have included in this Parent Bulletin, the day has been full of students with Santa, Elves, Reindeer, “Team Rudolph” and the occasional “Bah Humbug” emblazoned on their jumpers. One student asked me whether this could be our new uniform - I am afraid I had to disappoint her!
I would also like to thank all the students, parents and staff (both our own and peripatetic) who were involved in making the Music Department Christmas Concert such a joy and such a success. It is, as always, an absolute pleasure to be able to watch our wonderful students showcase their considerable talents on these evenings. I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that some of the musicians from the evening will be performing at our Christmas Service being held in the Hall at our Sixth Form Centre next Wednesday. The service begins at 5.30pm. I look forward to seeing as many of you at the Christmas Service as can attend.
With only one week to go until the end of term, it is important to note that, though there is the inevitable and understandable excitement that comes with the build up to Christmas, lessons continue as normal. With the exception of Thursday morning, when we take some time in our Celebration Worship to congratulate students and share in their successes and the final two lessons on the Friday, where time is spent in form groups, our expectations regarding behaviour, work, attendance, uniform and effort remain unchanged. I have no doubt that you will support us in this.
We finish next Friday, 19th December at the normal College time of 3:40 pm.
