Head’s Blog 20.11.2020

We follow last week’s news about the ISA’s film competition with more good news from the ISA awards.  Each year they award the Whitbread Memorial Prize.  Schools are invited to submit two pupils who have performed outstandingly in their GCSEs and also made a significant and sustained contribution to the wider life of the school community.  We have had boys recognised for the last two years but this year’s entrants have done exceptionally well.  Max Hashem was announced as the winner and our other entrant came second.  Both have contributed a great deal to the School since they joined us and I am delighted this has been recognised by the judges.  When pandemic restrictions allow, there will be an invitation to the House of Lords from Lord Lexden, the President of the Independent Schools Association, to celebrate their success.

Thank you to the anti-bullying ambassadors for an excellent assembly and also for a great week of resources.  They have spent the Autumn term planning how the School could celebrate and fundraise for Anti-Bullying Week, although unfortunately the bubble restrictions put a stop to a few ideas the Ambassadors wanted to do (colour-runs through Regent’s Park and a school bake sale). The Ambassadors chose two boys from each year group to represent them in the sale of Anti-Bullying wristbands and stickers for their respective year groups. Odd Socks Day turned into an Odd Socks Week after its initial success and boys have worn very bright and odd socks each day.  Boys have also been learning about the importance of being an Upstander to bullying rather than a Bystander; a key message of their assembly this week.

I hope that you all have a good weekend,

Seth
