Teamwork and Dedication

Posted: 20th May 2019

Successful teamwork involves communication, consideration and concentration – and all three have been much in evidence this week.

Tuesday evening saw us welcoming next year’s Reception parents to the traditional new parents’ supper. A team of staff were on hand to greet our guests, and everyone played a part in helping the newest members of the Stormont family to feel welcome, as well as making sure the evening went smoothly.
On Wednesday Year 4 played host to Darcy Turner, the sculptor and inventor, and by the end of the day they had collectively produced three super wire bird sculptures. Darcy commented to me when I dropped in to the workshop half way through the day about how well the girls were doing; their positivity, listening and cooperation, their creativity, resilience and teamwork had really impressed him.

Year 6 were on hand that same afternoon to help with Year 3’s Tennis Festival in conjunction with Little Heath, and this morning they entertained us all with an amuse-bouche of a French assembly ahead of next week’s trip to Picardie. The confidence and enjoyment of everyone taking part, the slick running of the performance and the impressive accents, acting skills and singing (not to mention the alphabet conga!) were all commented on afterwards by parents. Bravo, les filles!

None of this would happen without the dedication of the staff at Stormont. Thank you everyone, and well done on a super week!
