Wilmington Grammar School for Girls is one of Kent’s leading schools.
Our motto is the Pursuit of Excellence and we have a long record of academic success.
It has been a busy week both in and out of school. On Wednesday evening Mrs Hunt and I attended a dinner at the University of Greenwich, where we heard a fascinating lecture on avatars and cyborgs delivered by Professor Liz Bacon. She also discussed some of the fascinating work relating to driver-less cars which is currently taking place there. The venue for dinner was the beautiful painted hall and it was a breath taking scene.
The School Council are looking to introduce bottle recycling bins in the form rooms.
Students are currently considering two options – a smaller bin with a lift up lid (25 litre) or a larger bin with a swing lid (50 litre)
Students will be challenged to see which form can recycle the most. This is a new element to add to our inter-house competition.
Please could students feedback to form reps to indicate which type of recycling bin is preferred?
‘Half a Sixpence’
Rehearsals are slowly coming together and we have nearly finished blocking the show! Now it is time for cast members to learn their lines, remember song lyrics and enjoy being on stage! The set is going to painted in the next couple of weeks but Mrs McKenna is still looking for a crew. Students should be Y10 or above and sign up outside M4, tweet @wgsgproduction or see Mrs McKenna/Miss Mitchell for more details.
Tickets will be on sale at the end of February at a cost of £5. It is a fabulous show and the students (and staff) have worked very hard. Please buy a ticket and come along – you won’t regret it!
We have permission to film the performance so we are currently looking for companies to film the show. Please contact email@example.com if you know anyone or are interested.
Important dates to remember:
- Saturday 21st March – All day dress and technical rehearsal for cast and crew 10am-4pm
- Monday 23rd March – Dress rehearsal after school. Times TBC
- Tuesday 24th March – Matinee for local elderly people. Please note: this will be a 3x3 day.
- Thursday 25th, Friday 26th and Saturday 28th March – performance dates. The show starts at 7pm
I look forward to seeing you in March!
The weather is getting colder but here are our students waiting calmly for the bus.
Students waiting for the 601 are now queuing outside with all other students in our larger waiting area. Following from a few teething errors this is now running smoothly, although it will be even better when our new rails to separate the queues arrive soon!
We've just launched our Mathematics Challenge 2015. See below for full instructions. We're hoping to make all the numbers from 1-100 using only 2, 0, 1 and 5. Students are allowed to use any mathematical operation but they have to use all four numbers and the numbers can be used only once. We're only allowing two solutions per student at the moment, and every correct entry that gets added to the board gives an R1. The board is located in the Maths Corridor opposite G13. It is also being advertised on the maths twitter page as well, so get your brains in gear and seek out creative solutions.
The weather has certainly been colder of late and snow is again forecast this week. We will always attempt to ensure school is kept open and will place any notifications on the website.
