“Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play.
I’m in a brand new school this year.
What a happy day!”
Last week saw us welcome our students old and new to their brand spanking new school. Everything is ready, everything works and everything is sooooo exciting! There was a real buzz around the building and the first day was sound-tracked by lots of “Ooohs”, “Ahhs”, “Wows” and plenty of “Where am I going?". The sight of students walking around looking thrilled with their new school is a joy to see for all the staff. Wide-eyed wonder is the default expression for most.
It’s inevitable in a new building this size that people will take time finding out their way around…two weeks in and I’m still getting ‘lost’ sometimes. The beauty with getting ‘lost’ in this new building is finding even more amazing spaces, resources and people on my way around.
We held a hugely successful training day featuring highly informative, rewarding and fun presentation sessions from specialist Ellesmere staff and experienced external partners. The success of the day will lead us on to similar events in future as we strive to remain at the forefront of delivering effective, successful work for our students.
