I came to see the College's production of 'We Will Rock You' on Friday evening, the whole cast were fantastic!!!
It was so professionally executed with each and every young person on stage giving 100%. Please pass on our congratulations to all those who took part and also to the teachers who guided and put the production together, it was a really enjoyable evening:
Relative of Thurston Community College student
I would like to start with thanking the students and staff involved in the production of ‘We Will Rock You’. Once again we were overwhelmed with the professionalism of our students, we have already been inundated with accolades from audience members:
"Saw the show tonight. Absolutely amazing performance by such a young cast. Very impressed. Special mention re Scaramouche - excellent comic timing with her lines, what an actress! Galileo did extremely well. He sang an awful lot. The vibe on stage was fantastic. I loved it all. So much energy and passion. Music brilliant as well. You should all be very proud. I didn't see Les Mis last year but now I have seen your latest production I will come and see whatever you decide to do next year. Wow, wow, wow. Well done."
This week our Year 11 students will be undertaking their Mock Examinations, these Mocks are an excellent opportunity for our students to prepare for the intense experience of lots of exams over a short period. Each student has the opportunity to sit ‘full papers’ under examination conditions To provide diagnostic subject feedback to help students make informed decisions regarding the next steps they need to take to ensure optimum outcome in exams; and finally to give students the opportunity to reflect on the quality of their exam preparation.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents and carers of two scheduled events taking place at the College over the next few weeks.
Firstly, a representative from Suffolk Parent Partnership will be visiting the College on Friday 7 March from 10.00 – 11.00am. Suffolk Parent Partnership is available for one-to-one support for parents and carers at the College. Appointments can be booked by contacting Abigail Fordham, Principal’s PA.
Secondly, our next Parent and Student Evening will take place on Wednesday 19 March, from 4.30 – 7.30pm. This evening is for students in Years 11, 12 and 13 and their parents and carers and provides a key opportunity for detailed, personal conversations with subject teachers at this crucial time of year, as students prepare for their forthcoming examinations.
Finally, I would like to remind parents and carers that I provide three opportunities every week for you to visit the College and meet with me in person. These are:
- 'Tea & Tour with the Principal' on Tuesday mornings from 10.00 – 11.30am
- 'Tea & Tour with the Principal' on Thursday afternoons from 2.00 – 3.30pm
- ‘Principal's Pop-In’ on Friday mornings between 10.00 and 11.00am
‘Tea & Tour’ is conducted in small groups and designed to allow prospective parents, carers and students to see the College in action during normal lesson times. ‘Principal’s Pop-In’ is an opportunity for current parents and carers to book an appointment to speak to me privately about any matter of interest or concern. To book, please contact Abigail Fordham, Principal's PA. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01359 230885.
Have a good week!
