Our Week 15th - 19th June 2020
Monday 22 June 2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
This week I am writing to you again in the shadow of events where a lack of acceptance and understanding have had genuinely dire consequences.
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the Reading attack, and more than ever, this affirms our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum that teaches the importance of acceptance and understanding.
An Oval graduate will be a global citizen with a strong moral compass and the means to articulate the need for social change. However, they will also be a sensitive and accepting individual able to hear opinions and engage with evidence that discords with a personal belief fairly and constructively.
Beyond all else, this is the mark of effective education - the removal of prejudice and the acceptance of others, an understanding of your place in the broader world with an eagerness to improve the condition of the many, not the few.
On a brighter note, we have always loved to celebrate achievements, and the hard work of all our pupils - below is the celebration of achievement PowerPoint for you to enjoy.
