Outdoor space - progressing well

Cameron Cartwright - Principal's Star

Most of our Year 11s have now finished their exams. We are really looking forward to seeing them back in on Friday 6th July for their leavers assembly at 10.30am (students will need to be in uniform) and then at their Prom at Ryde Castle in their finery.

I had a fantastic time at the Year 13 celebrations on Friday. It was lovely to receive an invitation and be able to share in their success. We would like to wish them all the best with their future plans.

It’s not long until Mardi Gras, Saturday 30th June. If you can please come along and support our students. T
he overall theme is 'Global Biospheres' and our section is representing the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve, San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina, Columbia. We are very pleased to have been awarded this area, as it has provided great scope for 3D pieces and the use of bright colours which we are hoping will look fantastic on the day. We are also able to recycle some of the costumes from our Rock Challenge performance which lends itself to the ethos of helping to protect our global biospheres. You can find out more in this weeks County Press which includes a special feature.

Thank you to Layton Williams, a West End dance performer, for coming in and working with our Billy Elliot cast. You can read all about it on the front of this Newsletter.

I am looking forward to meeting our new Year 7s when they come up for Year 6 transition on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th June.

You can see from the pictures that the outside space is progressing and the layout for the carpark and visitors entrance is taking shape.

Well done to Cameron Cartwright (Year 7) who is this weeks Principal’s Star. He was nominated for his
fundraising efforts doing a 10 mile walk to raise money for RP Fighting Blindness which he did for his grandad and all the people with sight problems. He was positive throughout despite the heat and sometimes rough ground.

Have a good weekend. If you are going to the festival please be safe and have a fantastic time.
