It has been a really enjoyable final week of term here at Wright Robinson with the classrooms, halls and corridors bursting with the magic and joy of Christmas. As part of the celebrations every year group enjoyed a Talent Show, Christmas Lunch and a Festive Film.
The staff and students fully embraced all of the festivities which helped to make the time so special. It was refreshing to see everyone joining in with smiles on their faces, lost in the moment and able to forget any tribulations.
In addition, this week our students across all year groups took part in the ‘Community Christmas Trees’ initiative and delivered their trees to both Tesco and Morrisons. These were greatly received and I am proud that the college continues to make a significant contribution to community life.
The Student Lead Council continued the festive spirit of giving and arranged for the collection of toys to be donated to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Members of the Lead Council, along with Mrs Murphy, took the gifts to the hospital on Tuesday 14th December. The hospital as always were extremely grateful and I would like to thank all students and staff who coordinated the collection and all of our families who contributed.
Interspersed amongst the festivities normal college service resumed and there have been the usual array of sporting successes this week in a range of sports. Well done to all of those involved and I look forward to the New Year when we will reach the ‘business end’ in many of our winter sports.
All that remains is for me to thank our staff, students, parents and carers for all of their hard work and commitment throughout the year. A school is not outstanding by chance. It takes teamwork, dedication and resilience to create the kind of educational environment that we are fortunate to experience here at Wright Robinson. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the festive season. I look forward to seeing you all soon and ready to go again in 2022.
