Dear students and parents,
Thank you to everyone that supported our recent fundraising event, the TBS Danceathon, through showing us your very impressive dance moves or donating to the fund. This event really showed what our community represents; the desire to provide support for others and the ability to come together in an inclusive manner. The spotlight this week is ‘Community’ and our Community Ambassadors articulate what this means to them in such a powerful and meaningful way; highlighting support, relying upon and helping others and building relationships. The latter is such a strength of our community, where relationships are positive, respectul and formative amongst and between all of our ‘stakeholders’. It is through our interactions and actions that define us as individuals and as a community: our students represent all of these values and live these each and every day.
Congratulations to all of the students that put themselves forward for the KS4 Ambassador positions; I am sure that you will all have a positive impact on our community in the years to come. I am especially excited about our Primary Ambassadors’ plans for a Climate Change event in the near future. As the G7 Summit starts today in the UK, with a focus on vaccinations and climate change, I reflect on the leaders that will be making decisions that will impact our lives, and only wish they attended school’s such as ours, where values, actions and subsequent decisions reflect a genuine desire to support the community and global needs.
On Monday, we will be focusing on our wellbeing with a variety of activities throughout the school to help us reflect on how we can look after ourselves, so that we are in a position to help others. There are schedules posted for both Primary and Secondary students which include: sports and fitness; meditation and mindfulness; self coaching and goal setting; music and performing arts; meaningful engagement in hobbies – juggling, bucket drumming and live air guitar jamming look particularly engaging and fun! Our wellbeing activities will take the place of any regular specialist, small group or individual lessons. We hope that all students (and parents!) will take the opportunity to participate as fully as possible, as it promises to be a very enjoyable day.
Have a lovely weekend and take good care.
