The final school assembly of the summer term was a very special occasion. Head of School Mr Jukes introduced the assembly by explaining that this has been a busy year at Lansdowne School.
September saw the elections for Head Boy and Head Girl. We have had many wonderful trips to the theatre, historical buildings and even the ballet. Some fantastic class assemblies have been staged. Work Experience was a huge success.
Mr Jukes commented that guests to our school often tell the staff that Lansdowne is a great place to visit. We always welcome other people into our community.
The assembly continued with the final Stars of the Week for the school year. Mr Hilton then announced the winners of the summer maths challenge. The task was to estimate how much money was raised for Grenfell with our Bake Sale and Sports Day maths quiz.
The combined final total was an incredible £243.27. This money was placed in a jar for all students to estimate. Year 12 student Lewis came closest with an estimate of £240.
The Class of the Week trophy was awarded to 7G. The pupils finished the school year with 100% of their ticks. A Praise Postcard was presented to Jordan in Year 10. This is to recognise that he is the pupil with the highest number of postcards throughout the year.
Mr Jukes ended the assembly by explaining some of the exciting opportunities planned for the new school year. Roots and Shoots college visits will continue. New Start training will also be available.
We will be able to offer work skills in carpentry, mechanics and hair and beauty. A new computer course is also being planned. Our school is continuing to grow. We look forward to welcoming all students and staff back for the first day of teaching on 6 September.
Have a fantastic and safe summer holiday!
