This week the college has been actively engaged in a number of initiatives to support Mental Health Awareness Week. The focus was Nature and the Environment and to help promote a cleaner local environment on Wednesday over 150 students from all year groups, escorted by college staff, walked the local area equipped with bibs, bags and gloves to clear the local streets of litter.
As you can imagine this was very well received by the local community with one local resident commenting “It’s wonderful what the college is doing for the community. Keep up the good work!”
I would like to congratulate all of our students who took part this week in our Wright Robinson Community Litter Pick initiative and thank the staff for organising and supporting the initiative.
In addition, there have also been several Mental Health and Wellbeing initiatives for staff including a staff lunchtime walk and our Seed to Sunflower competition. We look forward to seeing which of our staff have been blessed with ‘green fingers’.
Last Friday it was pleasing to see a move closer towards normality when our Year 11 athletes attended a ‘friendly’ meet at Sports City. Whilst no results were published I can report that everyone who represented the college performed well and the team appear to be well placed for when competitive action returns. Well done to everyone who took part and good luck to our Year 10 students who are taking part in an event this afternoon.
From May 17th, the national lockdown measures will begin to ease further and our students will be able to enjoy more freedoms. However, as always I trust that parents and carers will support the college and indeed the national effort in ensuring that students adhere to any restrictions that remain following these changes.
