NEW BUILDING TOPPING OUT CEREMONY

On Monday 31st March at 11.30am the Mayor of Lewisham and other local dignitaries will be visiting Sydenham to perform the ‘topping out’ ceremony on the new building. We will also be placing the Time Capsule below the new Performing Arts Block and a team of students from the Student Council and our Leadership Students will be participating in the Ceremony. This is an important and exciting stage in the new build process as it marks the reaching of the highest point of the building.

PUNCTUALITY CHALLENGE

Punctuality figures for this week: (Monday 3rd to Friday 7th)
Unfortunately every Year Group’s percentages have gone down from last week
On the positive side – well done to 8D, 9S and 10D for being the best TG 2 weeks in a row.
Can you beat these figures next week? It relies on you being in school on time every day.

Year 7 - 98.7% best TG = 7S
Year 8 - 98.3% best TG = 8D
Year 9 - 97.3% best TG = 9S
Year 10 - 95.8% best TG = 10D
Year 11 - 93.6% best TG = 11A

The best Tutor Group for punctuality each half-term will be winning a prize!
We should be at 100% in every Year Group - who’s stopping your Tutor Group from being on target for time!
Mrs O’Connor

STEM LECTURES - AN OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE MISSED!

The second STEM series lecture will be happening on Thursday 13th March from 6pm till 7pm the Main School Hall. The speaker is Dr Francesco Dazzi and he will be talking about Stem cell research. As a STEM school we have a lot to do to ensure that our girls get all they need to make it in what is still very much a man's world – and women have always been part of the hidden workforce that has pushed us to this technological cybernetic age. So please come along, everyone's welcome!
