The Easter Bunny visited school today...

Message from the Deputy Head

Dear Parents

Despite a shortened week, it’s been a busy but wonderful last week of term.

Today we have invited pupils to wear non-uniform.  The money pupils have donated will contribute to the overall amount raised for our four charities: Muslim Hands, NSPCC, the Salvation Army and UNICEF.  We had our Rewards Assembly today too.  This is always one of my favourite times in a term to award pupils for their efforts and achievements.  I also announced the winners of the six House competitions.  Congratulations to Rufford who were the overall winners of the Spring Term competition week.

It’s lovely to walk around the school and see creative learning experiences.  Miss Hook was very proud of how 8C listened carefully, presenting well-thought-through arguments, and respecting the process and each other in their class debate in English.

Miss Seaton has been presenting pupils with so many creative opportunities.  Year 10 and 11 delivered a great performing arts show on Thursday last week and the Tea Time Concert on Friday showed how talented our pupils are in the arts.  I was delighted to see over 25 pupils auditioning for Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat yesterday after school.  The pupils started with an amazing and very energetic warm up by Miss Seaton followed by very impressive auditions.

You will have seen on our Facebook page the amazing time that pupils are experiencing in Iceland.  I can’t wait to hear about their adventures.  Thank you to Mr Rollinson for organising the trip.

I hope the whole Hollygirt community has a wonderful break and I look forward to welcoming our amazing pupils back to school on Tuesday 16th April.

Kind regards

Dave Cholerton
