Thank you once again for all your hard work and energy in developing our project at Thurston: we find the imaginative working practise at the College inspiring and always leave feeling energised and full of ideas
Multi Story Theatre Company
I would just like to personally thank everyone for a great week and also for helping us put on a brilliant show. It was such fun and I really hope I get to see another of your shows again soon.
Year 9 Student
As the academic year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank every member of staff at Thurston Community College for their dedication and hard work, which has ensured another outstanding year of success for our students. I would also like to express my appreciation to members of our Governing Body and of course to all parents and carers for their ongoing support.
Congratulations to the most important people in our organisation: our students. I am so immensely proud of everything they have achieved this year in the classroom, during extra-curricular enrichment activities and through the positive contribution they have made to the College and to our wider community.
I would like to share with you a recent email received from the parents of a Year 9 student:
“Dear Miss Wilson,
I am writing to let you know how pleased we are with our daughter's experience and progress through her first year at Thurston Community College. She has been given the opportunity and encouragement to become involved in new activities and motivated by dedicated and enthusiastic staff to progress academically. During her time with the College we have seen our daughter grow in confidence. We believe her confidence has developed not just from the supportive way she has been facilitated to try things outside of her comfort zone, but that she has also been enabled to become involved in College activities. This has given her a sense of belonging, developed compassion towards others and made her feel valued.
Finally, I would like to wish all our students, staff, parents, carers and governors a happy and restful holiday.
