Headteacher’s Message – 16.03.18

On Tuesday, Captain Emma Henderson, an Easyjet pilot, led the parent workshop and whole school assembly based around the theme of ‘inspiring girls.’ Emma is an inspirational woman in a male-dominated industry and she was full of encouragement and advice for our pupils.
Last night’s curriculum evening featured, amongst other things, collages based on work by Picasso, a ‘replica’ of the Sagrada Família, tapas, flamenco dancing and quizzes! Thank you to everyone who turned out to support this event and a special thank you to Mrs Manly for organising the evening and Mrs Pitcher for her culinary talents! We hope that you had a great time finding out what your children have been busy learning this half term.
Today we held our first Book Swap event. It was great to see so many children going home with new titles to interest and motivate them to read for pleasure. This will be a regular date for our diaries, with the next Book Swap taking place next half term.
It is always great to hear about pupils’ achievements and hard work outside of school and I am very proud to hear that some Bowmansgreen pupils have been busy helping to look after their local community. Some attended the litter pick with the scouts on Saturday and helped to collect 50 bags of rubbish from the local area. Thank you children for being so helpful and responsible.
Mrs Stanley continued the Spanish theme into breakfast club this morning, with a delicious Spanish breakfast. I thoroughly enjoyed my cheese, Spanish omelette and fresh fruit which gave me a super start to my day! If you missed out today, please come and try breakfast with us any morning from 7.30am – you won’t be disappointed!
Senior leaders and governors have recently reviewed the security of the school site and have agreed that we need to amend the times that the back gate is open to parents. A letter will follow on Monday, to further explain what measures are being taken and why.
A letter has gone home today with details of our after school clubs that will be running after Easter, including a few new ones. Please tick your preferences and return your form to school by Tuesday. You will be notified which clubs you have secured places in before the holidays.
Enjoy your weekend – hats and gloves at the ready!
