WORD of the week
Recalcitrant - Stubbornly resistant to or defiant of authority
Welcome to Debenham High SchooL
Message from the Headteacher
Monday 5 December 2016
This week, the first of advent, students from all year groups will take time to stop and reflect in our Pray Space. With a carousel of stimuli, students will think about their emotions and spirituality; the stations include a well of forgiveness, a tree of thankfulness and a worry wall. Each year we use the time of advent for students to explicitly think about their own sense of faith and how they feel about others and the world around them. Of course, much of this are values that we espouse through all our work at Debenham High School, but in this week we make sure students genuinely stop and take time. In our busy lives we do this too infrequently and it is an important part of our well-being.
Also this week, we welcome Year 9 parents and carers with their son or daughter as they meet their teachers at Parents’ Evening. With choices for future pathway around the corner this evening is well-placed to share with parents and carers where the students are and what they need to do to improve.
Finally, next week sees the start of our Christmas Book Fair. With the Book Mastermind competition last week this is great chance for students, young and old, to buy a book for a competitive price through the school discount. The fair will be up in the library for a number of days and over our forthcoming evening events.
Talking of which – make sure you book your ticket for “Grease”. Over 60 students are in the cast, crew and orchestra and the tickets are going quicker than Mrs Pink’s Thursday roast! Please contact the school office for your ticket.
