What an amazing week!
I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a ‘dull week’ at St Giles, but this week has been one of the busiest and best yet!
One of our pupil’s has landed the staring role in an ‘info-movie’, which aims to promote the importance of maintaining good tissue viability. So we’ve had camera crews around school, filming various bits and pieces, but it certainly created lots of excitement for us! I have heard a pupil shout “ACTION!”
A huge thank you to our amazing staff and David, Geri and Kimberley, from the NHS tissue viability service, for supporting our pupils so beautifully, to ensure they shone! I was very proud to receive such positive feedback about our school from the film crew!
This week we have met 4 prospective pupils and their families, who have been to visit our school. It was a huge moment of pride to learn that all of them had nothing but positive things to say about our school. They were overwhelmed by the kind, caring and positive interactions between staff and pupils, they loved the learning our pupils were enjoying and commented that our school felt vibrant and full of life! Go #TeamStGiles!
We also welcomed Ian and Jules back in to school this week, who have both been long-standing supporters of our work. It was the first time I had met them both and I was pleased to hear why they kept choosing to raise money to help our pupils. They believe in what we do!
This year, we have agreed to put the money towards the funding of our new reading programmes that will have such a positive impact on all of our pupils. We want to achieve all of the objectives in the Children’s Laureate’s ‘Right to Read Charter’ this year. More information on that to come!
I am hugely grateful to Ian (‘Beechy’) and Jules, and others like them, for their continued partnership and support, as we prove that ‘No DREAMS Are Out of Reach’!
Congratulations to Charlie, Louis and Reece, who received Head of School awards this week, for their exceptional achievements!
Thanks to all those who supported Jeans for Genes day today! A charity that is so pertinent to all of us here at St Giles!
Don’t forget that our first parent training and support session is next Wednesday afternoon! It is on ‘ensuring good tissue viability’ and is led by David Carter, an expert from the NHS. (Please ring the office to book your place)
Have a great weekend!
