Etheldreda House

Welcome to Etheldreda House

Firstly, happy new year to all our Etheldreda students and families. I hope 2018 is a healthy and happy year for you all. The first half term of 2018 is coming to an end already and our Etheldreda students continue to show their positive attitude and commitment to learning. Already we have had some fantastic achievements from our students.

Eloise Holgate in Year 7 came 14th in the county cross country championships, which was held at King’s School Ely on 14th January. Eloise has qualified for the regional competition - we wish Eloise the best of luck. I'm also very pleased to let you know that Louie Harrison achieved Judoka of the Year Award for the most improved judoka from Littleport Judo Club.

As I mentioned in the December newsletter, celebrating achievement is something that I feel is really important for our students in order to encourage them to make the right choices in their life and lead them on their path of success. Please continue to let us know, so these can be celebrated.

E-AFI have been using one form time a week to work on the development of the wasteland at the back of Technology. They are currently working very hard to dig out a pond. The aim is to produce a wildlife habitat, which will not only improve the outlook, but also double as an outdoor learning space for all of our students. Any other students who’d like to get involved are welcome to attend on Thursdays after school to also support and help with this project. There are a range of activities that they carry out which include clearing and planting as well as building hedgehog hotels, bird boxes, feeders and much more.

PLEDGES day number 3 took place on Monday 22nd January and, yet again, was another success. Students had the opportunity to partake in a number of different workshops which have hopefully given them a better understanding of health and fitness by looking at elements such as nutrition, wellbeing, physical fitness, healthy relationships and body image.

I focus this term on encouraging our students to have a positive mindset and embrace the challenges they face in order to continue to learn and push themselves beyond their comfort zone, to achieve the best they possibly can. I hope to motivate and inspire as many of our Etheldreda students as I can to create a curiosity of learning and for them to become well-rounded students within education and their personal lives.
