Mr Bolderow’s Blog Week 6

Dear Parents,

I hope that you all enjoyed the half term break – the boys have settled back in well and I have enjoyed reading the shout outs this week.  I was also pleased to see so many of the boys engage with the inter-Trib Drama and Music competitions – the quality of the entrants was excellent in both competitions and I look forward in particular to seeing how the music competition develops when we are all back together in the future.

The English Department would like to invite the entire school community to take part in Wetherby’s ‘Celebrate and Educate Reading Scheme’. Building upon this year’s Diversity Day and the School’s ongoing promotion of Wetherby values, the scheme hopes to encourage the celebration and education of diversity and difference. The current Black Lives Matter protests in America have no doubt sparked curiosity and questions from many of the boys. As always, the English Department would like to use literature as a springboard to help the boys further understand and engage with such an important and topical issue.

The English Department will ask boys, parents and staff members to write a short review of their chosen text once they have read it. We hope to share all recommendations and reviews at the end of the term.

As you know, we are working towards reopening for Year 10 and Year 12 on 15th June.  It is important that the boys are given some time in School for their wellbeing and it will also allow us to prepare for next academic year when we may face similar challenges and periods of reduced numbers in School.  Please be reassured that the safety of the community is our priority and meetings have taken place this week, including a walk around of both buildings, to make sure that everything will be in place for a return with social distancing in place.

With best wishes, Seth
