Head of School Update

This week at school….

On Monday the Junior school took part in mini orienteering sessions outdoors.  Each class was tasked with reading a map and finding markers hidden around the school grounds.  Well done everyone you were amazing! Next week will see the Infants have their sessions.

Monday afternoon saw us hosting an athletics event with 4 other schools attending.  Our children who attended did a brilliant job – the competition was tough but we still got a few medals for first place. You all made us proud.

On Tuesday we welcomed a representative from HSBC bank who led sessions with all of the children in MIJS, helping them understand in simple terms how money works in our society.  The children asked some very insightful questions and we hope to repeat this again next year. 

Tuesday morning also saw us taking our Year 5 and 6s to North Walsham High School to see their production of Aladdin. The performance was fantastic and our children all thoroughly enjoyed it!

Thursday and Friday saw some of our Year 6 class attend their transition days at Cromer High School and next week Monday and Tuesday will be the same for those attending North Walsham High School.  We hope they all have a great time and look forward to hearing all about it next week.  

End of term planning:  Over the next couple of weeks we will be finalising and then sending out confirmation of classes, staffing and events for the final days of this academic year.  We very much look forward to seeing you all again for some of these events as we say goodbye to some students and staff and welcome in new ones.  

School Money: Please ensure that all balances have been brought up to date by the end of next week.  If you are having any system issues please contact the school office so we can resolve these for you. We will be chasing outstanding balances next week.

Lastly, sports day photos – it was an exceptional day and enjoyed by everyone.  Thank you again for supporting and participating so enthusiastically!  We are currently checking the photos and they will be loaded up shortly.
