Head's Blog: Tuesday 27 September 2016

Upcoming events

On Thursday 20 October we have our Post-16 information evening. Year 11 students and parents are encouraged to attend to see what is on offer for their Sixth Form studies. As well as giving students a clear idea about the possibilities for next year, it also helps motivate students as they come away knowing what they need to achieve to make the next steps in their education. The evening will start at 6 pm in the College Hall. Afterwards there will a chance to meet subject teachers and other providers.

Over the next fortnight each Year 7 Tutor Group will be away on residential retreat at Buckfast. This will really help them get to gel as a form  and to understand better what we are about as a College.

Opportunities to learn well

Please do keep looking at your son's books and discussing his work with him. Remind him we are looking for every student to show pride in their work this year so he needs to be doing his best with presentation. Also remember that you can check on what homework he has been set and when it needs to be done by checking the Show My Homework website which can be accessed by following this link.

There is also an app for Android and for Iphones. Please contact your son's form tutor if you have not received login details for the SMH page.

Opportunities for sporting success
Our Year 7 Rugby team had their first taste of competitive play last week. They took part in a tournament and won three from three matches beating Stoke Damerel, Eggbuckland and Devonport High School for Boys. Mr Elliot-Smith reports that the boys were a real credit to St Boniface's winning with passion and style whilst maintaining the highest levels of sportsmanship. Well done to the whole squad!

Opportunity for prayer
Boys will be using this prayer during Tutor Time

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
