Focus on Attendance is a HSCL initiative
This measure is taken to ensure that there are no distractions to teaching and learning.This ban extends to classrooms and corridors. Phones must be left in lockers. If students breach this rule, they will have to surrender their phones daily, to the deputy principal. An exception may be granted if a teacher explicitly requests students to bring phones to a particular class for an educational purpose. The exemption must be sought on a class by class basis. This ban will be extended to the whole school next year.
A letter/report has been provided to all students. Parents should discuss it with their children.
It contains data on Full Days Missed, Part Days, Lates, Classes Missed and Hours of Teaching and Learning missed. Each student receives a personalised analysis of their numbers. Likely totals are predicted and the consequences of reaching these totals, if any, are fully explained. As always parents are encouraged to check their child's attendance data on VSware. If hte prediceted consequences look to be a problem steps should be taken to make sure the predictions are not reached.

The second Years and Rang Cara made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday for the teachers and ancillary staff. They had fun working together and eating the scrumptious pancakes. Ms Dever supplied Caramel spread and Crunchie spread fort he toppings. Beautifully decorated plates were sent to Mr. Mythen and Ms Higgins to show our appreciation for their hard work.
This year’s panto was a tremendous success. Well done to all the students involved and thank you to everyone who helped out during the three shows.
Emmanuel took place in The Helix in Feburary. Our school was lucky enough to have three 5th years Laurence Groark, Georgiana Costadanche and Valeria Gilloi take part. Georgiana sang a solo and we were lucky to sing back up in the choir of over 450 students. There were many schools with many amazing and talented students who were also singing and dancing aswell. We loved the experience and we will never forget the overwhelming appreciation form the audience for our choir. It was great to be part of such a big event in The Helix. We are so grateful to have been chosen for this wonderful opportunity.
When we returned after the February mid-term we moved into our new classroom. It is much bigger and brighter than the old one. We also have a new quiet room with lots more equipment.
Its so inviting we will work so much harder to achieve our learning targets.
