It's been a strange week again at Thornhill School. Firstly, I would like to thank everybody for adapting so well to the change in service and for your understanding whilst we managed a changing situation on the ground. Those children who have been learning at home have been doing very well and working hard and I thank parents for providing support and encouragement. I recognise that this is an inconvenience for every family and home-schooling has a huge impact on your daily life. I also know that it must be immensely difficult keeping primary-aged children indoors during periods of wonderful weather. I also want to thank the staff who have managed to keep learning going for those children who are in our remaining bubbles. As always, I am immensely proud of all the staff team.
This is the last official newsletter of the school year. It has been another unusual year, but again I feel there is so much that we can be proud of and so much has been achieved. I would like to focus on our Year Six leavers, an amazing group of students who have shown strength, determination and resolve during challenging times. These young people will leave our school next week with everything they need to be successful in the future. They have a positive mindset for learning, they can work independently, and with others, they are enthusiastic readers, and they are keen to develop their knowledge through study. They are also genuinely lovely students, kind, thoughtful and mature. They will be very much missed by everyone here at Thornhill.
Good Luck Alan, Aiden, Alfie, Riley and Sophie. I wish you every success in the future, enjoy the last week of Primary school, even if part of it is spent at home. Always remember how awesome you are and how resilient you have been during tough times. You can be anything you want to be.
