HeadLines, Friday 15 September
We hope this newsletter finds you in good health and high spirits. It brings us immense joy to recap the vibrant and eventful week.
The week kicked off with a flurry of intellectually stimulating activities. Ms Lang talked to us about one of our 5 Keys – Organisation, and this could then be seen in a Year 8 science experiment where Bunsen burners helped spark curiosity and in literary discussions that ignited imaginations, our pupils demonstrated a commendable thirst for knowledge. Teachers’ innovative approaches kept classes engaging and interactive, fostering a love for learning.
Ensuring the holistic growth of our pupils is at the heart of our educational philosophy. Workshops on mindfulness and resilience continue to provide invaluable tools for mental well-being. Art and music sessions offered creative outlets for self-expression, while sports activities promoted physical fitness and teamwork.
It was wonderful to hear Milo play in assembly at the beginning of the week, and our competitive matches have (mainly) gotten underway! We are all aware that some children might need time to adjust back to the classroom, after a long holiday and to refine the skills needed to facilitate good learning practice, now that they are back into the collaborative learning environment. If you have any concerns do touch base with your child’s Form Tutors and Class Teacher.
Our school is a melting pot of cultures, and this week highlighted the beauty of our diverse community. Pupils shared and discussed how Christianity is celebrated around the world, through their traditions and stories, deepened our collective understanding. The Catering team offered a delicious journey of international food from the traditional to the Indian subcontinent.
Rose Hill School takes great pride in its strong ties with the local community. Our Harvest Festival celebrations and contributions will go towards St Matt’s Community Larder. Please find more information about Harvest Festival in the newsletter.
I extend my heartfelt thanks to all parents, teachers, and pupils for making school an unforgettable experience. Thank you for all your support during our first full week back. I appreciate that a new routine can be tricky to establish, but I think we are all getting there!
Thank you to the PA for organising another wonderful Camp Night, just the first on many exciting events we have planned this academic year. I look forward to the continued success and growth of our school community.
