It has been a busy start to the academic year as students and staff return to college life as we know it here at Wright Robinson, experiencing the full curriculum diet and a range of extra-curricular activities. The desire of staff and students to make up for any time lost due to Covid continues to be clearly evident.
I would like to take this opportunity to urge any parent who has not already done so to register with the college’s ParentApp as this continues to be our primary source of daily communication. A further invite to join the App was sent out earlier today (Friday 24th September). If any parent is unable to access the App please contact the college and our staff will be happy to assist you.
Following a successful Open Evening, we anticipate that the college will remain as popular as ever for 2022. All students involved in Open Evening were an incredible help and many of our visitors commented on how impressed they were with the manners, confidence and enthusiasm shown by the students. All students were impeccably presented and were a credit not only to the college, but also to themselves and their families.
I am pleased to inform you that 203 students have this week attended the initial meeting for the college’s Duke of Edinburgh programme which is due to commence in early October. It is satisfying to see such a positive response from members of our Team.
Over the past two weeks we have also had large numbers of students signing up for this year’s production of High School Musical and the early signs are that the break due to Covid has only inspired more students to tread the boards. I look forward to watching the production later in the year.
I am pleased to report that our sports teams have started where they left off and we have enjoyed some excellent early season results, the pick of which were the victories for the Under 13 Girls and Under 16 Boys in the ESFA Cups against Haslingden School and Caldy Grange respectively.
Finally, I would like to congratulate Miss Harrison who has recently been nominated for Teaching Personnel’s ‘Teaching Assistant of the Year Award’. The nomination was in ‘recognition of the valuable contribution Teaching Assistants make to children’s education and support’. Miss Harrison is testament to the hard work that the staff at Wright Robinson undertake every day.
