The Importance of Remembrance

This blog goes ‘live’ for tutor time every Monday. Therefore, by the time this is read our Armistice assembly will already have taken place. In my assemblies last week, I stressed the importance of the Royal British Legion poppy appeal and that we should support it and remember those who fought and lost their lives in order that we can live our lives in freedom. We owe a debt of gratitude to those people and it right that we show our respect in the assembly and in the subsequent activities in tutor time. I was pleased to see increasing numbers of you wearing a poppy throughout the week. I also know how respectful you always are with regard to marking this occasion and I would like to thank you for the fantastic levels of respect you showed in the assembly.


Moving on to other topics, I would like to thank all of you who attended our fireworks evening on Friday. It was a brilliant evening, with the proceeds going towards supporting our College. Our attendance was higher than last year with well over 2500 people here to enjoy the live music, food, drink and of course the fireworks! There are too many people to thank by name, but I must mention the parents’ association who gave their time to make the evening a success.


A reminder that this Friday is non-uniform day for Children In Need. We ask that you bring a voluntary contribution of £1 to wear your own clothes on Friday this week. There will also be opportunities to take part in different activities at break and lunch, as well as cake sales. You will need to bring some small change with you in order to take part in some activities – please bear this in mind!
