Delta Download #3

Our house assembly fell on ‘Blue Monday’ this year which in only one instance was rather apt (as our house colour is blue!) Students were asked to tell me what makes the 3rd Monday in January officially the most depressing day of the year and we aimed to spread only positive messages as we begun a new week.

The prefects have been encouraging us all to beat the January Blues this term. In our most recent house meeting our house captain Ali said that he wanted to do a cake sale. So the Delta Team along with some very lovely Year 11 students came together to get baking after school to produce some delicious cupcakes. These of course went down a treat and raised some money for our house charity, Off The Record.

Our House Heroes were revealed in our House Assembly by the Delta tutor team. Tutors were asked to nominate one student from their tutor group who cheers them up and helps them to beat the January Blues each day. Congratulations to...

Inter-House Apprentice

The candidates have been whittled down week by week and heading into the final we have a showdown between Delta and Gamma. So far during the process students have demonstrated their creativity in creating their own chocolate bar, they’ve had to be on trend by designing a slogan T-shirt, made their own workout videos and were tasked with the Tenner Challenge.

Hannah, Amelia and Orla are in the process of finalising arrangements for the candidates to be put through their paces before the winning team is revealed. Remaining in the process are 2 x Year 8 Delta teams and 1 x Year 9 Gamma team.

In the absence of our prefect’s in house assembly we launched the recruitment process for the 2020-2021 cohort of prefects. Year 10 students are actively encouraged to apply for the valued position. Application forms are on the Year 10 Google Classroom page and paper copies are available from Miss McDonagh. Be brave Year 10, put yourself forward and be a role model for other students!

House Reps- A Doodle poll is live on our Google Classroom page ready for you to select which day of the week would be most suitable for you to meet.
