Headteacher’s Blog – 11th November 2022

With Remembrance Day on Sunday, assemblies this week have focused on the
importance of Remembrance Day whilst also sharing the symbolism of the poppy
and reminding us of the sacrifices which have and continue to be made. We’ve
also been selling poppies, raising funds for the Royal British Legion who provide
a lifeline for serving personnel, veterans and their families. Today at 11a.m. we
observed the two minutes silence. On Sunday I’ll be accompanied by Atlanta,
Becky, Emily and Savannah at the service at St. James’ before they lay the
wreath at the war memorial. It’s a privilege to participate in such an important
event in our community.

We were delighted to welcome Years 9 and 10 parents, carers and students to
the Duke of Edinburgh Award meeting on Wednesday. Students have the
opportunity to get involved in the Bronze Award in the coming weeks. It will be
led by Mrs. Murphy with Mr. Field and Mr. Lough supporting. Thinking ahead to
the expedition, if you have any walking or camping kit that is in good condition
that we could have to loan to students, it would be greatly appreciated. Please
e-mail schooladmin@boroughbridgehigh.com

Next week, on Friday, we’ll be fundraising for Children-in Need with a non-
uniform day. You can make a donation on Parent Mail. The School Council are
currently finalising the other fundraising events and students will hear about
them shortly.

A reminder that it’s a Professional Development Day on Wednesday 16 th
November when students do not attend school. On that day, staff will be
working with the NHS Wellbeing in Mind team on building resilience across our
school community before evaluating progress made against the school priorities
and identifying next steps for development.
Have a lovely weekend!
