This week we considered the importance of respect for the rule of law and how laws evolve to suit the times.
This week we looked at the differences and similarities between people, and how that relates to respect. Underneath we have much in common with each other, and our experience of being human is far more similar than it is different.
Focusing on the importance of respect, across our community, therefore seems timely, and will hopefully enable everyone to enjoy this special time in the academic year.
In assembly this Monday I thought it important that the girls heard first hand just how rewarding work can be. Mrs Kulley’s first career aspiration was to ‘be a mermaid’ but over time this evolved, and she now works in a Finance Team.
In assembly this week we looked at the changing role of women in the workplace, and how the last century has seen women embrace opportunities and contribute to the wider world.

Continuing to consider our heritage, this week we have considered our individual stories and narratives.
