An eventful week…

I’ve had quite an eventful week.

On Tuesday I had the privilege of listening to Alison Cottrell, from Hawthorns, presenting to a national working party about how our children in school have approached the issue of recycling and being ecologically aware.

I had been asked to recommend a school that would be able to present to Government agencies the difference we can make as a school community.

Alison and the team had prepared a super short film filled with video clips and photographs of our children involved in a variety of activities, all designed to look after their environment. It was a brilliant introduction to the debate and very timely as work is now starting to take shape with our new school in Tameside.

The session on Wednesday reminded me of the importance of fully engaging with our children, our families and our communities.

In the next few weeks, we will be contacting you all to set up working parties and steering groups.

This will be your new school.

It’s for your children and for our communities to use.

It’s imperative that everyone, as far as is reasonably possible, is involved from the very start of the project. I’m still working on a couple of logistical issues but once these have been ironed out, we can enthusiastically start the work.

On a more personal note, last week our family experienced the challenge of “transition” when our youngest daughter moved to the London College of Music. We had the same feelings many of our families have when your child starts on a new venture. I’m hoping to get around all our schools in the next few days to see how all our “new” children and young people have settled.

It’s starting to get busy again! I’m hoping that, next week, I’ll have more information on Samuel Laycock – our Trust is totally committed to bringing the school into our family of schools. We absolutely see the benefit of having Hawthorns and Samuel Laycock being much more closely aligned.

Have a great weekend
