Friday 8th March 2019
This has been a very productive week, some students and I have met with the school catering manager to look at how we can reduce the environmental impact of the plastic cutlery we use in school; students have been sharing their vision for The Vyne (I am delighted that many parents have also been completing the survey monkey to give their views); Year 10 have all taken part in a mock interview; Year 11 are taking their last set of mock exams and we are planning the next steps for our Peace Garden project.
I have also had the pleasure of speaking to Charlotte in year 7 who has just returned from Ireland where she was representing GB in kickboxing and achieved success in both her own age category and the next category up. We look forward to hearing more about her developing career.
Staff have been recognised in the press too, Ms Hide has had an extensive article published in two prestigious art magazines “Color” and “Pencil It In” and Miss Bryant has been identified in “Educate” magazine for her contribution to learning support at The Vyne. “I absolutely love my job,” she says. “And it's a lovely school to work at.”
Four students represented the school at the Hampshire Literature Quiz held at The Romsey School on Wednesday. Schools from across the county answered extremely difficult questions on everything from the classics to Wimpy Kid. Competition was fierce and unfortunately we missed out this year - but our team's knowledge of myths and legends was second to none and they demonstrated superb teamwork by listening carefully to each other and making some intelligent guesses. Well done Jack, Bethany, Charlotte and Zane - you did us proud.
Students also had the chance to try their luck in a number of competitions to mark World Book Day. Winners are yet to be announced by Mrs Holmes, but we have all enjoyed matching staff members to their favourite books in 'Book Day Bingo', and three students will win a 'curl up with a book' goodie bag - popcorn, cookies, chocolate and a wonderful new book - what could be better for a rainy weekend?
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Pearce, Headteacher
