Congratulations to our Year 7 boys table tennis team who are our newest Borough Champions! They had a brilliant tournament this week, and played really well throughout against some very tough opponents. We’ll add the team photo to our growing Wall of Fame to celebrate their success. Brilliant news!
I enjoyed checking in on the refurbishment programme this week, walking round our new spaces and seeing the progress our contractors have already made. The schedule of work is tight, but indications are positive. We are planning how to decorate the hoarding at the front of the building so that the students can make their mark on the process as well. They have been involved in planning the growth of the school through the buildings. I shall continue to keep you updated.
The media has been full of reports about different phases of the coronavirus national action plan. We have been planning for different scenarios, and have developed a range of online learning activities that can be completed from home should the need arise. Teachers have been practising using different apps and resources in class to try to get as far ahead with this as is possible. You may have seen your child preparing Google classroom activities at home. I have enjoyed seeing the creativity from students and staff in the balanced way they have responded to this. The Pinner High School Values or resilience, flexibility and courage spring readily to mind. Whatever the future holds, I know the school community will rise to the challenge.
Year 9 rose to the challenge of their Midterm examinations a couple of weeks ago. Today they receive their grades, and will spend subsequent lessons looking at feedback and how to improve further.
