NEW-BRIDGE CELEBRATES INTEGRATED EDUCATION WEEK
Monday 29 February marks the start of Integrated Education Week. A number of events are planned throughout the week culminating in our annual Year 8 ‘Celebration of Integration’ Assembly on Friday 4 March when Parents of our year 8 pupils and pupils from Bridge Integrated Primary school and St Francis’ primary school will join with us to celebrate our 20th Anniversary assembly.
Ms Harrison, Head of Year 8 is pictured along with Mrs Harrison form tutor and a number of year 8 pupils at the launch of events for IIEW 2016. This year’s theme HARMONY is being interpreted by each department throughout the school and our key quote for the week is “You don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note” Doug Floyd. This work will also be used as an opportunity to promote development of ATTITUDES & DISPOSITIONS across the curriculum. -personal responsibly – concern for others – commitment – determination – resourcefulness – openness to new ideas – self-belief – optimism – pragmatism – curiosity – community – flexibility – tolerance – integrity – moral courage – respect –
