Thought of the week

This week’s thought is about character. Today’s assembly centred around the QPA Character Award, detailing not only the importance of having a strong character but also the practicality of how the scheme works at school. The children were also introduced to Bethany Hamilton, an inspiring surfer who has continued to excel in the sport despite losing an arm in a shark attack when aged 13.

Awards

Congratulations to all of our end of year award winners. These accolades were achieved by pupils identified as making outstanding progress in academic subjects and sports as well as for demonstrating strength of character throughout school life.

Town Hall

The School Council conducted themselves in a very professional manner whilst visiting Town Hall and the Mayor. The children asked interesting questions and showed a great deal of interest in the role of the Mayor.

PGL

All the pupils who went to PGL last week had a fantastic time and demonstrated positive characteristics throughout: interdependence, trust, courage, compassion and grit, to name but a few.
