On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Windhill Primary School.
Welcome to the New Year message from the Governing Body of Windhill Primary School
First of all, we would like to welcome everyone back to Windhill Primary School at the start of 2020, a brand new year.
We want to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are to everyone who, through 2019, contributed to the ongoing aspirational and ambitious journey of Windhill Primary. It was a very busy and a very successful year for our school community.
One of the most notable things that makes us proud, as parents and carers, and education professionals is when our pupils grow their confidence and make right choices. During the Christmas holiday, I had the opportunity to go to the cinema with my family and watch the film, Frozen 2. It’s a very popular film as was Frozen 1. I was very impressed by the message of one particular scene. Anna was in a cave. She was upset and didn’t know what to do. Her song contains these lyrics:
“I'll make the choice
To hear that voice
And do the next right thing.”
At so many times in our lives, we are faced by uncertainty. Should I do this? Or should do something else? Sometimes the decision just seems too big. Anna breaks her problem down into small steps and simply starts by choosing “the next right thing”
Our pupils at Windhill are being taught about learning behaviours which will help them to develop skills of resilience, collaborative learning, creative approaches to problem-solving and to develop positive mind-sets. All of these things will help our pupils to choose “the next right thing” to progress their learning with confidence, enjoyment and pride.
We wish all of our school community, and visitors to our School Website, a happy New Year. We look forward to a year of even more successes and enjoyable learning for our pupils.
Mrs Lynn Mathers
Chair of Governors,
