Welcome to a bumper Headlines to end Term 4!
RESPECT week this week has provided numerous opportunities for conversations about our continued work to be a school where we genuinely respect each other and show that in the way we work together every day. The Culture Fair on Wednesday gave pupils and staff an opportunity to share information, food and traditions from countries they were interested in or had a personal link to and Respect badges have been worn with pride to remind us all of the message of this week.
The Literature Festival this week has been a great opportunity for our young people (and staff) to engage with reading and discussions about books that have changed their lives. The item below explains just how many literature-based experiences have been on offer – thank you to the English Team and Neil Southwood for their on-going work to promote the love of literature here at Hardenhuish.
It has been a busy Charity Week and the School Parliament, Sports Leaders and Student Leadership Team have done a great job in raising funds for our charity for this year - Cancer Research.
The Spring Concert on Tuesday evening was a real celebration of the musical talents of our young people, showcasing a real mix of musical genres.
Pupils at Hardenhuish School experienced an exciting array of trips, workshops and presentations last week during the school’s second Science Week.
The event, organised by the school’s Science department to coincide with National Science Week, involved all year groups. All Year 9 pupils participated in Zoolab workshops during which they met a range of creatures such as stick insects, a royal python, hissing cockroaches and a rat and learnt about the complex adaptations of the animal world. Later in the week, the Year 10 pupils attended a Chemistry presentation hosted by Professor Averil MacDonald OBE to support the GCSE Science curriculum.
