Year 7 make an impressive start to life at DGSPosted on: 14/09/2017
We are only a week in to Year 7 and life at DGS, and I could not be more proud of how well the girls have settled in. It has been a pleasure to drop in to their Student Guidance Time and lessons, and see just how focussed the girls are. I am stopped on a daily basis by other members of staff saying how lovely the year group are and that they are a pleasure to teach.
My drop-ins this week have been English, Science, and Art, alongside teaching a lot of Y7 PE and some PD. The girls have really impressed me with their excellent attitude to learning and their confidence when sharing answers and feeding back to the class. During Student Guidance Time it has been lovely to see girls reading notices from the School Bulletin in front of the rest of the class, organising their tutor group roles, nominating a Form Captain and ensuring their tutor boards are up to date. Keep it up!
A special mention must go to the following students; Ella Hale, Summer Hawkins, Jessica Mallows, Bethany Wright and Molly Rasmussen, who, on their second day, were being interviewed for our Twitter page about their first impressions of DGS. Well done, girls! If you haven't had chance to follow DGS Twitter, you can do so by clicking here. It is a great way to find out what the students are doing.
The girls will be bringing home letters inviting you to our Parents Information Evening, which is being held on 28th September from 6.30 until 7.30 in Cockcroft Hall. If you cannot make it, all of the information will go on to the Y7 area of the website.
I hope to meet as many of you as possible on 28th.
