Yesterday the Senior Leadership Team spent the day away from school working on a number of things in preparation for next year. It is always this time of year when a lot of work takes place for the new academic year, and being away from school allows for a clear head and no distractions. From now we are able to put together the 2017-18 School Development Plan which draws our attention to key areas we wish to see develop.
Tonight I am attending the final full governors meeting of the year. At every full governors meeting I compile a report in how MGS has developed and what we have been working on since the last meeting. It is also a chance for me to inform the governors of the outcomes of the previous day.
Tomorrow evening I have invited some neighbours who live around the school site to join me in looking at the plans for the new pavilion. It is really important we engage our neighbours with such matters and understand from them their thoughts and ideas. I look forward to welcoming them.
I am very excited about Thursday night’s Parents’ Association event. I am a huge snooker fan and was brought up on the vintage snooker years of the 1980s. The six-time world champion Steve Davis will be here at MGS playing a few frames of snooker and entertaining the audience with some funny stories and providing an insight into his life. Tickets are still available.
And finally congratulation to Hamish Reilly of Year 9 who took part in the National Youth Triathlon Super Series event in Llanelli last weekend. It was Hamish’s first race at this level and he finished in a very credible 6th place. Coming out of the swim he was in 31st place but then had a fantastic bike segment which put him into 8th place going into the run. Well done Hamish.
