Today, after getting another week of GCSE exams successfully ticked off, we said goodbye to our wonderful Year 11 girls. Ms Brown, Year Leader, Ms Ihsan, Progress Leader, Mr Rudland, Assistant Headteacher and the Year 11 tutors said a heartfelt goodbye in a final assembly. The Year 11 team shared memories to mark the journey the girls have been on since joining the school in 2013. Head Girl, Hannah Dale, was cheered by the Year Group as she wished them all good luck for the future. I look forward to celebrating great GCSE results with the year group in August and hearing about their success in years to come. ‘Once a Sarah Bonnell girl, always a Sarah Bonnell girl’.
On Thursday 24 May Ms Adel, Associate Senior Leader and Curriculum Leader for Computing accompanied a group of KS3 students to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. Sandhurst hosted a special Careers Day, especially for girls’ schools, to promote a range of different STEM opportunities in different work settings. The girls had the whole day to explore STEM careers. An Ex Sarah Bonnell Student, Nicole, is training at Sandhurst. She was really surprised to see Ms Adel and was pleased to speak to the group and discuss her journey with them.
I wish everyone a safe and happy half-term holiday and look forward to seeing the girls in school at the usual time on Monday 4 June 2018.
