Hello, I hope you are all well and enjoying the glorious sunshine – a welcome change after all that rain. In true biblical fashion, I pondered the need to build an ark and transferring our students from this building to it!
As is always the case in any school we have had a busy time since the last edition. I was lucky enough to be asked to attend Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School which was celebrated by His Grace, Archbishop Bernard. I was so pleased to be able to do so and thoroughly enjoyed my time with staff, parents/carers, governors and most importantly of all the students from Holy Trinity.
Last week we welcomed our Year 5 visitors from St Thomas of Canterbury, St Joseph’s, St Peter’s and Holy Trinity to our Year 5 Retreat. Again, what an amazing day it was. Our visiting students were so well behaved and courteous and I can see exactly why their teachers are so proud of them. I was most impressed by the thoughtful approach they took to their work and the considered responses they provided to questions asked.
Today, we have welcomed our new Year 7 students in for their Induction Day. This follows a most positive and successful Induction Evening last night where we met the parents/carers of our new students. Again, it was wonderful to have the opportunity to do so and of course it goes without saying how proud I was to hear the many positive and complimentary comments made by those visiting about our school, the teachers and support staff I work with every day and the children in school.
The week coming is a very important week for school. Our current Year 12 students commence their Work Experience. Our new Year 12 return to school for Induction. Staff will participate in our Day into Industry Day and we will host the Walsall Catholic School’s Sports Day on Friday.
