PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - 29th September 2017

We are a small school, but big on heart and big on ambition!

 


In my previous Principal’s Message, I welcomed our new students. It has been exciting for me to start getting to know them, and we place great emphasis on everyone being known individually by their fellow students and staff. Our governors, who are frequent visitors to the school, also take time to meet and talk with our students.


I was therefore particularly pleased to see the comments that our Year 9s gave when asked to share their Atrium experience thus far. Two of my favourite responses are:
“ The environment in the classrooms is much more focused, the work is much more challenging, and the teachers generally care about your learning.” Rosie
“ Teachers are enthusiastic with our learning. They use interesting ways to help our understanding and learning.” Heather.
