Principal’s Blog 14th July – A prom, a trip to Borneo, flying machines, Maths puzzles, car parks, a wizard, tin-man, and a lion with the most amazing mane.

A prom, a trip to Borneo, flying machines, Maths puzzles, car parks, a wizard, tin-man, and a lion with the most amazing mane.

Last week ended on a high with the fabulous Y13 Prom. It was an absolute delight to be allowed to share a wonderful evening with such an exceptional year group, celebrating and reminiscing the last seven years. Results day will be with us in a flash and they will all go off either to exciting university courses or into the world of work
blogMr Higgins has been sending regular reports from the World Challenge trip in Borneo which departed in the early hours of Monday morning (pictured left). This is no doubt a future blog in the making.

Closer to home we enjoyed the company of Y5 and 6 students this week taking part in literacy/ numeracy events (building flying machines) and a gifted and talented Maths day. It was a particular pleasure to speak with so many parents who are already very much feeling part of the Hazeley family. One year 6 student said, “I can’t wait to start in September, I have already made loads of friends and it already feels like my school”- this is exactly what we hoped to achieve.

Thank you for those of you that continue to support the trial of the new car park lay-out. We are hopeful that with a few tweaks it will make things smoother and safer for all members of our community.

The PE team have enjoyed a high profile this week with sports day (well done Cobra!) and sports presentation afternoon. As if this was not enough they also ran a joint sports leader’s event with Shenley Brook End School and our Y9 students.

Last and certainly not least literally centre stage this week has been the production of the Wizard of Oz. If you missed it, then you missed out on something very special. Great songs, great set, great acting and an abundance of laughs. All involved deserve to be very proud of their achievements.
