Back to Brilliance: A Vibrant Start for Our Years 7 & 8 Stars at John McGlashan College!

Thursday 1st February 2024

This week we have dived into the new school year and I'm thrilled to share some highlights from the bustling corridors of John McGlashan College.

Firstly, a warm welcome to our new Year 7 students! These past few days have been a whirlwind of activity for them, but amidst the excitement, they've shown remarkable resilience and enthusiasm. From their inaugural attendance at our whole school chapel to immersing themselves in their specialist subjects, our newest additions have truly embraced the spirit of our college. It's heartening to see them forging new friendships and settling seamlessly into the John McGlashan environment.

Equally, I extend a hearty welcome back to our Year 8 students! Seeing familiar faces return to their new classes is always a delight. I have every confidence that they will continue to excel and embrace the challenges and opportunities that this year holds.

As we embark on this journey together, let us all be reminded of the importance of giving our best efforts in everything we do. Our students are not only blessed with opportunities but also entrusted with responsibilities. Therefore, let us uphold the adage, "to whom much is given, much will be expected." This guiding principle underscores our commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals who strive for excellence in both their academic pursuits and personal growth.

In the weeks and months ahead, we encourage open communication between home and school. Together, we can provide the support and encouragement our students need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Once again, welcome back to all parents, caregivers, and students! Let's make this year one filled with learning, growth, and memorable experiences.
