Headteacher’s Message – 09.03.18

Careers week has been amazing! Thank you to all of the parents who have helped to make this week so special. Pupils have learnt about a range of careers and professions and have been inspired by the visitors who have led workshops and discussions. Today, pupils came to school dressed as, amongst other things, an MP, paramedics, surgeons, financial advisers and vets. It has been a fantastic end to a great week which has motivated and enthused our pupils. Thank you to Mrs Clark in the school office for organising this fantastic event.
To support British Science Week, all pupils will be taking part in a House event on Friday which will involve making model reptiles.
Next Thursday we will be welcoming you all to our Spanish Fiesta! Our curriculum evening will have a Spanish theme and will provide an opportunity for you to see, hear and taste what your children have been busy learning in their Spanish lessons. Please come along for some tapas!
On Tuesday, there will be an assembly and parent workshop with the theme of ‘inspiring girls.’ They will be led by two female pilots who have achieved success in male-dominated professions and who will share their stories and hopefully inspire your daughters (and sons!) to have high aspirations and follow their dreams. Parents are invited to both the assembly (8.50am) and workshop (9.15am). Please meet in the main reception entrance at 8.45am if you wish to attend. Dads are also very welcome!
Year 6 is currently egg-sitting! Over the next couple of weeks we hope to welcome some new chicks to the Bowmansgreen school family. Photos to follow.
On Friday we will be holding our first book swap event. Please send your child into school on Friday with any books that they would like to swap. Older pupils will be supervised in the mobile classroom from 2.45pm where they can choose books to swap. The mobile will be available until 3.30pm for parents to accompany their children if they want to support them choosing books.
I am very happy to announce that Mrs Murphy O’Connor gave birth to baby Jude on Wednesday. Mother and baby are both doing well and I know that you will join me in sending our congratulations and best wishes to the family.
Enjoy a lovely weekend.
