Headteacher’s Blog – Week 4 – Rewards

October 5th, 2015

This week assemblies were run by tutor teams.

The Year 7 assembly linked to the RRS right of the week:

Article 19: Governments must do all they can to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect, and mistreatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them.

The tutor 7EM made a video looking at the Myths of Harrow Way.

Year 8 tutor 8LJS looked at the harms of smoking ahead of Stoptober in October. The tutor group looked at the history of smoking and the dangers of smoking.

Tutor 10SBT looked at Rewards; that sacrifice and resilience can lead to success. Miss Beynon-Thomas also looked at the new rewards system for stamps and explained the first round of prizes.

Year 11 assembly was about nonviolence, as Friday was International Nonviolence Day. Tutor Mr Marsh says:

“I explained what nonviolence means and how it was pioneered by Gandhi as a form of peaceful protest. I also explained that nonviolent protests are statistically far more likely to succeed in bringing about long-term change than violent ones, and discussed the fact that we have a human right to protest in a nonviolent and peaceful way if we disagree with systems and the way things are run. I finished with the Gandhi quote ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’ as an inspiring message to students.”

Slides that accompanied the assembly can be viewed here.
