This week has been a busy one with students starting their new September timetables. It has been a good opportunity for staff and student to learn about their new classes and be prepared to start September knowing where to go.
In other news, five Year 10 students successfully completed their work experience with the Royal Marine Commandos. The week involved students having to complete a number of physically and mentally challenging activities. These included a navigation exercise, fitness test, an assault course and an endurance course based on Woodbury Common in Exeter. The highlight of the week was spending the day in a Royal Marines rigid raider in the middle of Plymouth Sound.
On Monday we welcomed a number of families to the All Saints for Open Morning. It was really good to talk to prospective students and their parents about the All Saints and then to show them the school at work. Parents were impressed with the changes at the school and now have a decision to make in September of which secondary to choose.
On Thursday night we saw Year 11 again at their Prom at the Elfordleigh Golf and Country Club. It was a fantastic evening organised by Mr Gilchrist and the team. Year 11s had a great time and staff at the venue commented on how well behaved the students were throughout the evening.
Next week is the final week of term and we have our rewards trips to Woodlands during the week. It will be great to celebrate the achievements of students this year and reward them for great attendance and attitudes to learning. On Friday we will have a non-uniform day and raise money for student reward trips next year. We will finish the day with assemblies to announce the sports day House winners and whole school BBQ to celebrate the year. The day will end at 1.45pm and students will be dismissed for their summer break.
