Congratulations to Harriet, Sam and Oscar who were magnificent.

Their next competition is a North of England competition during the Easter holidays. Ms Jabbar and Mr Duarte will be working hard in the meantime to get them ready.

As I write this 15 of our year 11 students and Ms Evans are making huge paper chains and banners to decorate the Astro for our whole school Pounds for Pea event.

If you have not read the earlier post we will be raising money for Sands and Sport Relief. On Wednesday we are holding a non uniform day where students are encouraged to wear their most flamboyant socks. During the day all students will walk three legged around the Astro, we are aiming for a combined distance that is the equivalent of York to Birmingham and back. All students to bring a pound or more if you wish to donate.

This week Mr. Burton, Mrs. Kitchen and I have been into over 30 lessons. We have been delighted by the positivity and enthusiasm with which our students work. It has been fantastic to see the pride that our students take in their learning.

Next week Friday is a training day so you can look forward to another dull update on how hard we work on the training day so you don’t think we are all at home with our feet up!

Have a good weekend, surely not more snow!

Rod Sims, YHS
