Wave goodbye, say hello...

Our students have coped admirably with the heatwave.   As you will be aware they were told they didn’t need to wear their blazers in such extreme weather, although they still looked smart in their shirt and ties/blouses.   The weather looks set to continue for next week so  the rule regarding blazers continues and please remember sunscreen and to send them with bottles of water.

As you are aware, Show My Homework is being rolled out next week.

We are really looking forward to our house athletics championships on 11th July.  As mentioned previously, if you would like to attend, please contact Lisa Edwards on s207ledwards@lighthall.solihull.sch.uk to register your attendance for safeguarding reasons.

Our geography students have been undertaking their field work in the Lickey Hills. Mrs Evans tells me they have been a credit to the school and themselves.  We all hope they have gained much from the experience.

We said goodbye to our year 11s at the Leavers’ assembly on Tuesday.   It was a lovely occasion and Mrs Burnham took them on a trip down memory lane with photos of their time here and a variety of awards.  We are now looking forward to the Prom.

It was a delight to meet all our new year 7s and their parents last night.  They are a group of very impressive young people, who are confident and excited about joining us in September.   We are looking forward to having them in school next Wednesday for our induction day.

May I ask you again to remind your children to keep themselves safe and not walk around with mobile phones on display.  The warm weather and long summer evenings mean more young people in our open spaces, such as parks.  The Local Authority has been receiving local intelligence from the police about a potential gathering this Friday evening, 29th June, in Shirley Park, which they warn all pupils against attending.

Our students in the Sir Edmund Hillary Suite are making the hanging baskets to sell for charity.    We are so grateful to Fraser Powell, owner of Market Gardens, Bentley Heath who donated all the plants for free.  

Finally, our end of year production “A Night at the Movies” is shaping up to be an extravaganza of singing, dancing and performing, exploring all our students’ many incredible talents.   If you would like tickets, further details are attached in this edition of the Word.

Wishing you a peaceful weekend
