All Good on the Yellow Brick Road

All Good on the Yellow Brick Road

A big thank you to and well done to all our courageous new recruits in Year 8 who took part in the Yellow Brick Road workshop with Jean Gascoigne, our school counsellor. It was a great opportunity to learn about new beginnings and make new friendships and  everyone greatly enjoyed the adventure. Many thanks to Jean for her invaluable input into this programme and, also, for the exceptional counselling facility which she freely offers to all our students.   Thanks, also, to Mrs Lilleker,( Head of Year 8),  for her unfailing guidance and concern for all in her care.  The Year 8 journey will continue next April when Dr Gita Morena,  the great grand-daughter of L. Frank Baum, (author of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz), will visit the Academy to further assist the Year 8 pupils on their  journey of self-discovery.  Courage, compassion and wisdom in abundance…
