I visited All Saints Church on Monday to speak to Cannon Graham Morris about using the church for our Awards Evening. Last year was the first time we did a proper awards evening and I was so proud of all the students who were nominated. It was lovely to see parents come along and celebrate their child’s success. We wanted to build on that by having a better venue than our hall and Cannon Morris has kindly allowed us to use the church to hold the event on Wednesday 5th July. More information will follow later in the year. 
Some of our Student Council attended Ryde Town Council’s Commonwealth celebrations. 
I am always pleased when we are able to take part in community events and it’s such a 
valuable experience for students.

The Student Council will be visiting the site of our new school next week. They have been involved right from the start in terms of some aspects of the building design and this is a great opportunity for them to see the progress McAlpines have made.

Some of you may have heard me mention STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). This is an area that has become increasingly important within education and careers and will also be a big influence in the new building with specially created STEM areas. We have also this week appointed a STEM co-ordinator who is our very own 
John Nicholson, Teacher of ICT, who will lead this important work.

Have a lovely weekend.
