On Thursday, we welcomed parents and families of year 9 students into school to meet teachers and discuss progress. I am delighted to say that a massive 87% of families were represented. Thank you for taking the time to attend and for your support of the students. Your keen involvement in your child’s progress will really make a difference to their success at school. It was lovely to meet many of your personally and share in your child’s achievements. The feeling was overwhelmingly positive on the night, please rest assured that where you were kind enough to bring concerns to our attention, these will be dealt with as soon as possible and reported back.
This week I was delighted to receive a message thanking the school band for their involvement in a recent community event. I wanted to write to express my deepest thanks to Mr Beardmore, Mr Marshall and all the members of the band who played at our event at The George Lawton Hall on Saturday evening. The welcome everybody felt when they arrived at the hall with the band playing in the foyer was of the warmest and that was exactly what we were trying to achieve. Really, it could not have been any better and this is borne out by the number of people who commented upon it. When the band came into the room the welcome they then received from the audience was magnificent and their playing of the march they took round the Whit Friday contests last year raised the roof and was the most perfect start to the evening. I am certain their participation helped people to feel more generous, so much so that the evening resulted in an amount raised, after all costs, of over £3,200. Please pass on the thanks of all my family and those who helped us to arrange the event to every member of the band; they were indeed ‘Top Brass.’ Congratulations to everyone from Mossley Hollins who were involved in making this event a success. Have a great weekend.
