Tommy statue unveiled

On November 11th we marked Remembrance Day with the official unveiling of our Tommy statue. The statue was generously purchased by two students who donated their Jack Petchey Award funds to show respect for those whose lives have been impacted by war.

We were delighted to welcome very special guest Captain Mo Morris MBE to say a few words to the school and to unveil the statue. Mr Morris has dedicated his career to the Royal Marines and has spearheaded mental health support schemes. He is a teacher, coach and mentor with extensive experience of working with people within the community and service, promoting resilience and developing strategies for coping with stress.

Students were inspired and moved by Mr Morris’ words, and Principal, Mr Walsh, was so pleased to welcome him to school:

“We are incredibly grateful to Captain Ryan Morris for taking some time to visit us and mark this special occasion.  It was very fitting that we should unveil our “Tommy statue” on November 11th and was wonderful that so many staff and students joined together to pay our respects.”

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
