Another wonderfully varied week at Talbot Heath. I would like to say ‘merci’ to our French department for organising our Junior and Senior French breakfasts which filled us with a little joie de vivre at the start of the day. We were delighted to hear that Isabelle G in Lower 6 won the highly coveted local Battle of the Bands title, with her band ‘Running with Scissors’. I was proud to present our Lower 6 mathematicians with their Maths Masterclass awards from the Royal Institution, in recognition of the excellent masterclasses that they delivered to our Year 6 pupils and others from the local area to develop their understanding of Mathematical concepts taught at A Level and beyond – one of the topics was the probability of winning the lottery.
The school was thrilled to receive a letter stating that we had been given the Gold School Games Award, a national award in recognition of the outstanding opportunities we offer our pupils to be physically active through the curriculum, extra-curricular and leadership events and community outreach; only a handful of schools receive such a national accolade and my thanks go to Mrs Lindon and all of our PE staff for supporting our pupils to be so physically active. In this vein, I would like to wish good luck to Maisie in Lower Sixth, who will be running in the Race for Life in June, in memory of her father. Details are on her justgiving page and I am sure she would appreciate any donations to her fundraising campaign.
I would like to wish all of our Senior pupils the best of luck with their public exams and assessments and I look forward to taking part in the Junior School project week on the History of Talbot Heath, as a special guest in the hot seat.
Best wishes for the week ahead.
