What an inspirational afternoon we had on Friday! Over 30 students stood in front of the 5 judges, their Year 6 teachers and their peers to explain why they should be appointed the House Captain for their houses. It was an incredible event and I am not only pleased by the fantastic participation numbers, but also by the confidence with which all students spoke. Well done to all who took part!
Here are the results:
Williams – Tun (6TO) and Shaan (6SK)
Suu Kyi – Pim Pim (6PA) and Gorngris (6TO)
Mandela – Pam (6PA) and Ryo (6JB)
Schweitzer – Jormkwan (6PA) and Pat (6PA)
King – Yuqiao (6JB) and Sand (6JB)
Teresa – Nink (6PA) and Tresor (6PA)
What a great week we have had in Year 6 getting to know one another. It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome both new students and adults to the Year 6 Team and I’m sure they are all feeling settled.
We were welcome back to school on Wednesday by Mr. Seal who shared the incredible story that stole the headlines during the summer of the ‘Cave Rescue’. Mr Seal linked this to our new Character Strength for Term 1a – Respect.
Following this, on Thursday, I led an assembly with the Year 6 students to inform them of routines and expectations that I have of them for this academic year. It has been a joy to visit classrooms this week and witness the fantastic relationships already developing and I very much look forward to meeting you all properly next week at the ‘Meet the Year 6 Team’ event (30/8/18). At this meeting in the Memorial Hall at 1:45pm, I will share ‘all things Year 6’ and will ensure that you, just like your children, feel settled and welcome back for this new year at Shrewsbury.
On Friday we will hold the hustings for House Captains so please do encourage your child to apply via this link – House Captains. All they need to do is prepare a short speech explaining why they would make the best representative for their house (this link has also been shared via GoogleDrive with all students).
Lastly, I would like to thank you for your kind words already this week and I am looking forward to meeting you all properly on Thursday.
Have a great weekend.
Mr. J. Bilinkewycz
Year 6 Team Leader
