Executive Principal’s Blog – 17.9.21: ‘The Power of Teamwork and Collaboration.’
I would like to thank all students and staff for their involvement and support for yesterday’s hugely successful Year 6 Open Evening. All of us were working together to showcase the very best of what we do each and every day with the young people in our care. We know we have a great school and, judging by the significant increase in visitors this year, very much a real school of choice in the local area.
So many parents and carers who visited us yesterday spoke so highly of the positive culture and atmosphere across the school and the very positive interactions they had with all students and staff; a huge thank you goes to all our wonderful student ambassadors.
Head Boy Bhuvan and Year 7 student Amelie delivered two excellent speeches to packed audiences in the Main Hall and Year 11 music student Anton delighted the audience with his solo oboe performance of Debussy’s Au Clair de la Lune, providing an inspirational start to the presentations given. Over the next few weeks we will be welcoming many hundreds more visitors for our Open Mornings and tours of the school – a great way to see the school in action on a typical day.
Our students continue to be excellent ambassadors and leaders in our midst and this week I had the privilege of interviewing some superb candidates who had applied for senior student leadership positions in the school, alongside our Student Leadership Coordinator Mr Burley and Head Boy Bhuvan and Head Girl Isabella. On Tuesday afternoon many of our newly appointed Student Leaders gathered for an inspirational Leadership Assembly in the Main Hall where they were presented with their leadership badges – badges of honour that they have applied for and thoroughly deserve. It was great to see so many outstanding students present.
Inspirational American poet, author, peacemaker and philosopher Matthew Stepanek (who tragically died at the extremely young age of 13) once said “When there is teamwork and collaboration wonderful things can be achieved.” Bushey Meads School is without doubt a great place to work and learn so, as usual, don’t forget to click on the link to read about more about this week’s BMS News……..
