Apparently only 13% of adults enjoy going to work. I am in that lucky 13 percent. I love working at Stoneygate for a variety of reasons; one reason being that there are never two days the same; in fact at Stoneygate you will be lucky to get two hours that are the same! This week we’ve had numerous sports fixtures, several trips, musical events and a visit from a policeman…
One of the highlights of my week was listening to the vocal concert on Tuesday evening. As I mentioned to the pupils that evening sometimes we need to be brave in life, whether it’s putting in a big tackle on the rugby pitch or attempting a difficult Maths paper…and standing in front of friends and parents and singing a solo is not easy. Our pupils showed both courage and incredible talent that evening. Well done all. Keeping with music, I was fortunate enough to take some of our musicians to Oundle today and they certainly enjoyed participating in both the brass and woodwind sections. Thank you to Mrs Ashwin for organising this trip.

It’s been another busy week with sport too. Congratulations to our Squash team (defeating Oakham) and well done to our rugby and hockey teams against Leicester Grammar Junior School. (Do read Mr Stocks’ blog). Thanks to Mr Palmer and Mr Ryan for taking our U11’s rugby squad to Warwick school today – the boys performed admirably.

Thank you to the Reception staff (Mrs Balchin, Mrs Stretton & Mrs Smith) for taking our youngest pupils ‘On a bear Hunt’ at the Attenborough Arboretum. Thanks also to Mrs Jelly (and Mr Walters) for taking our Year 7 pupils on a Geography field trip to Stibbington. Thanks to Mr Stocks for organising our ‘E-safety’ evening with PC Finn- as a community we need to be aware of rapidly changing social patterns.
Finally, thank you to all those pupils who have been helping stuff ‘the Guy’ before Bonfire Night…
