It has been another hectic week at school, as I am sure you can imagine. We continue to polish and shine the jewel that is St Bees. Members of staff have been preparing their classrooms and making sure that everything is shipshape for September. Stocks of new textbooks are arriving almost daily and we are awaiting the new student planners, which should arrive on Monday. It is all getting very exciting! You can download this newsletter in PDF here, or read on….
The Parent Handbook was also published last week and so, by now, all parents should have received their copies. If anyone else would like to have a copy of our handbook, please do not hesitate to contact school and request one. Just drop us an email here.
It was exciting to hear this week that the Americans are launching a probe to explore the outer reaches of the sun. There are so many unexplained mysteries, including the question of how the tongues of fire which extend out of the Sun can be so much hotter than the core? It all seems counter-intuitive. Of course, my mind immediately returns to the Thunderbirds episode where Scott Tracey so bravely rescued the astronauts on the last Sun Probe. This latest American adventure, is of course, unmanned, so not the same at all!
There are lots of other unexplained mysteries, like why do dogs like to fetch a stick, but cats do not?
We are looking forward to hosting the St Bees Garden Show next weekend and we will also be represented at the Gosforth Show. If you have a moment to visit us at either event, do not hesitate to come and say hello. Lets hope that the weather holds for the coming weekend.
We are also looking forward to the next visit of Danny Wang, the CEO of Full Circle Education. He will be joining us for the latest Board Meeting which takes place in the week of August 20th.
Forwards with confidence!
