This week: New Year Resolutions, Parent Governor Election.
New Year Resolutions
At the start of term, we enjoyed a main school assembly about what’s good about January, as a month, and how to keep your new year resolutions going. We heard from Y7 girls who have decided to learn to cook, use less plastic and join more clubs in school.
As you are aware, there are dozens of clubs to choose from. The PE department offers Football, Trampolining, Fitness, Basketball and much more, there’s Debating, the brand new Critics Club in English, LGBT, Sewing and Design, Refugee and Feminist clubs, to mention just a few. It’s quite possible to attend a club every day of the week! So make it your 2018 resolution to join a new club this week and broaden your horizons!
Parent Governor Election
I am pleased to announce that Tom Engel has been elected Parent Governor. Mr Engel’s biography is as follows:
‘I recently joined BT as Director of External Communications, coming from a similar role at the education company, Pearson. I have held corporate communications leadership positions at the UK Departments for International Development and Work & Pensions, as well as the Natural History Museum.
My career began in the world of politics. After a spell as a parliamentary researcher, I worked in the South African parliament, where I established a scheme to train MPs and young parliamentary staff from groups previously excluded from such roles. Back in the UK, I served as Special Adviser to the Secretary of State for Education and Employment.
Consulting roles, including a six year stint in Hong Kong, have seen me work for a wide range of clients, from pop groups to the Premier League, multinationals to Amnesty International.
I have two daughters currently at CSG.’
