the weekly newsletter from EHS
Welcome Back from Mrs Rees
15 January 2021
Welcome to our first Friday Headlines of this term. We have had a busy start to the term with pupils returning to their learning with vigour, picking up where they left off at the end of last term. Whilst we are disappointed that we are not able to welcome girls onto the school site, it has been inspiring (but not unexpected from an EHS girl) to see that the virtual school environment has not dampened our pupils’ enthusiasm for learning. They have thrown themselves into lessons, as well as the enrichment opportunities that are available, some of which feature in this edition of Friday Headlines. The excellence book is open for nominations and I am looking forward to seeing the impressive work which the girls have produced. Girls have been encouraged to share all of their success and endeavours with us, including those outside of school.
Particular commendation must go to Year 11 and 13 who have worked hard in preparation for their examinations which have taken place remotely this week. The resilience and commitment that they have shown is impressive. Well done, girls!
In my start of term assembly, I encouraged the girls to think about “connectedness” and what this means, particularly in the current challenging circumstances. Undoubtedly it is an integral part of the fabric of EHS. We are all part of our EHS community and I have seen firsthand, how powerful that support is.
A highlight of the week has been seeing humpty dumpty fall off the wall in nursery, the girls had great fun.
A big thank you to all the staff, girls and to you for your goodwill and support for helping us to make such a smooth start to our new term.
“fideliter, fortiter, feliciter”.
