The month of June is now upon us, with the promise of summer in the air and hot sunny days. There is also the promise of the end of term, as we accelerate towards the final weeks of the academic year and our end of year celebrations. This year, these will have a very different feel, as we will not be all together in the theatre. However, we are already putting together plans for our virtual Prizegiving and Graduation ceremonies in the coming weeks.
This week we have received the results of our Virtual Road Race. I must say that I was most impressed with the efforts of some of our pupils and staff. We had over 100 participants, with over 150 Km covered, from a variety of age groups, each representing their respective houses (as usual). There were some excellent individual efforts, which have been announced in school this week. The overall points have been tallied up, with Cervantes House being announced the winners – well done to them!
Also, this week, I have been in school to look at our preparations for the coming year. As I mentioned previously, we have been planning for several eventualities for September, whether this be limited numbers allowed back, 50% classrooms or even 100%. As a result, adjustments are being made to the classroom environments, just in case. We, like you, are eagerly awaiting the final decisions in this regard.
I know that you will have received an email message from our European Director, Mr Wergan, regarding attendance, which we have been monitoring throughout the quarantine period. We are very much aware through our regular Safeguarding and Wellbeing team meetings, how the prolonged quarantine period has affected some of our pupils’ enthusiasm for their studies. And eventhough the end of the year is almost upon us, we would still urge you to make use of our school counsellor, Srta. Elena Sanz, for any support or, indeed, your child’s form tutor, or head of Key Stage. Please do get in touch.

This weekend we will be enjoying a long-weeked, with a ‘puente’ on Monday and a local holiday on Tuesday. So I hope you all enjoy your ‘stay-cation’ and have a chance to relax and perhaps see some friends as we move into Phase 3.
