First Post…

Welcome to my new Headteacher’s blog!

I’m looking forward to posting here with news, updates, thoughts and anything else that I think might be of interest about our school.  It’s been a busy and exciting start to the year for me and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the staff, children and parents at Simon de Senlis.

The photo above is me in the school playground; doesn’t school look quiet in this picture?

The picture below is from our recent trip to France with Year 6 and shows a view of ‘No Man’s Land’ from the Newfoundland Memorial Park.  Of all the pictures I took and places I saw, this was the most memorable.  Apparently the view is almost unchanged since 1916 and it was on this field on the 1st July when many Canadians lost their lives.
