A brilliant end to the half term with activity week: students have been engaged in a whole range of enrichment opportunities. They have taken up new challenges and brought new life to the Pinner High School Values with their positive approaches to the tasks set for them. Year 7 were engaged in art projects, Chinese calligraphy, House rounders, and a day of learning about PSHCE topics under the umbrella of 'My body, my rules'. Year 8 extended this theme by looking at aspects of the #metoo movement. They also worked with 'Wise Up team building' to improve their communication and collaboration, had their rounders tournament, and looked at film Science, yoga and poetry to do with their Houses. A varied and successful week, for which I must thank my colleagues for their inspirational work in running all these events around the school. They are a fabulous team.
In assembly to celebrate the end of the half term we awarded another Jack Petchey prize to a student who chooses how to spend £250 on a school project, celebrated the large numbers with 100% attendance, crowned our Chess champion, and were treated to an encore of 'Beauty and the Beast' from last week's fantastic show.
More to look forward to in our next half term: PinnFest, Sports Day, meeting our new year 7s, and preparing for three year groups at Pinner HIgh School. Where has the time gone?
