Headteacher's Weekly Message: 19th October 2018

Year 7 Celebration of Learning

On Wednesday Sarah Bonnell held its annual Celebration of Learning Evening. Year 7 students were proud to be able to show off their work and parents even got to see the drama performance of a Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of our Transition Project in partnership with The Globe Theatre. All the work on display demonstrated what a great first half-term Year 7 have had at Sarah Bonnell .  Be Proud

Headteacher’s Student of the Week

Todat I met two girls in Year 10 who had been nominated for the Headteacher’s Student of the Week Award by Mr Walsh, Progress Leader and Teacher of English. Maariyah and Naz had written a rap to the theme tune of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ all about Victorian England and the plight of the working class. This was all part of their background research on Victorian England to help them understand the context of the novel ‘A Christmas Carol’ written by Charles Dickens.  Well done to Maariyah and Naz! Work Hard

Sarah Bonnell Foundation Governors

The Sarah Bonnell Foundation Governors met on Wednesday and were pleased to hear about the impact the foundation has on students’ achievement and well-being. One Governor praised the students at Sarah Bonnell for making such a positive difference to their local community.

Janet Williams, and representatives from our Student Senior Leadership Team paid respects to Sarah Bonnell’s memorial stone in St Mary’s church, Walthamstow.  2019 is the 250 Birthday of Sarah Bonnell School and I am looking forward to planning events to celebrate.

Half-term holiday

Just a reminder that school is closed from Monday 22 – Friday 26 October. I look forward to the start of another successful half-term on Monday 29 October.

Rae Potter, Headteacher
