It has been a pleasure this week to do assemblies and wish pupils a good end of term, enjoyable activities days and a restful summer holiday. I have taken the opportunity to remind pupils about uniform expectations for next year – particularly in relation to skirt length which as featured on the front page of The Sunday Times is a national rather than Hardenhuish issue. If you are replacing skirts over the break – please ensure that they are below finger-tip length.
It was a pleasure to present to our Governing Body all that our pupils and students have achieved and participated in at their last meeting of the year on Wednesday. I have also had the privilege of Celebrating Success with Year 8 and 10 this week and welcoming prospective Year 7 pupils of 2019 and their parents/carers to our Open Evening last night.
What an amazing week!
After a fantastic Sports Day last Friday, the Gin Festival was a real success and raised a considerable sum for the Friends. This week we have enjoyed the Year 11 Prom on Wednesday and finally (after two years of being rained off!) our Summer Concert outside last night. Both were brilliant events and enjoyed by all. Thank you to all staff involved in organising these events and providing these wonderful opportunities for our young people.
It has been great this week to see the number of young people who have turned out each lunchtime to run the 1500m to gain points for their Tutor Group for Sports Day which has been a brilliant showcase of their sporting talents and a clear demonstration of Hardenhuish Teamwork.
