I regularly see parents at our many school events, such as Parents’ Evenings and School Performances, but they are always busy occasions during which there is not a lot of time to talk about matters of interest to us both. Therefore myself and some of my senior team thought it would be an idea to meet with interested parents for a more informal chat, so we’d like to invite all interested parents to come and share coffee and a cake whilst discussing key issues within school on Thursday 14th February at 11:30AM . I do hope a number of parents will be able join us, even if it’s just to pass the time of day and have a brew!
Speaking of cakes, I hope you are all impressed by the river themed cakes and models made by our Year 7 students, and seen on the attached photograph. I certainly am. Miss Wood was overwhelmed by the fantastic efforts made by her students, and genuinely found it hard to choose winners. Nevertheless, a number of hard work and triumphant students will be joining me for coffee and cake in recognition of their impressive work. Well done to these students!
In addition, I will also be inviting Year 9 students including Charlie, Delaney, Aleksandrina and Josh for coffee and cake next week. (I think you can spot a theme here!) This is because Mrs Clempson, our Learning Resource Manager, tells me what a fantastic job they did in Preston recently when they attended a Lancashire Book of The Year meeting. The LBOY is an award given to the best new fiction for secondary age students. Our students, along with pupils from several other Lancashire secondary schools, spoke about the books that have impressed them, and helped choose the final ten texts which go through to the first round. The next step will be to attend a further meeting to whittle the list down further. This is a highly prestigious award in the North West and I an delighted that at Fleetwood High School we have the opportunity to take part, and are represented by students who are genuinely passionate about what they read.
