‘Show Racism the Red Card’
Our ABC, Anti Bullying Committee, distributed thirty ‘Show racism the red card’ cards this week to each Tutor Group. This initiative follows on from our anti- racism assembly last term. The aim is that all students and staff will sign a card, which the ABC will then use to create a large mosaic of our school badge. It will signify the whole school coming together, unified in their action against racism.

Assembly this WeekMr Jennings delivered an assembly on the theme of 'Change and Challenge'. Students were asked, with the help of a video, to look forward to 2028 and to consider the changes that might take place over the next twelve years. Questions were then posed about how we all prepare for possible changes and how we deal with change in our own lives. This developed into consideration of the skills that we all need to help us to manage change and linked with the learning competencies being developed at Winston.
