Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real
Welcome to Debenham High SchooL
Message from the Headteacher
Monday 15 September
Our first whole school assembly of the year took place on Friday morning in the Leisure Centre. Gathering every student and member of staff together at the start of each term is an important tradition to establish our sense of community. Last week we took time to think about hope for each other and the term ahead, influenced by our Christian teachings and the remarkable Invictus Games. Let me share with you our prayer (which was read by Louise Davy and Alex Warnes – Head Girl and Boy) for the year ahead.
Lord, we ask for Your help as we begin this new school year.
Allow us to experience Your presence in the many blessings You put before us.
Open our eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.
Open our heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.
Give us a generous spirit to be enthusiastic with our studies and courage to accept new opportunities.
Inspire us to do our best and give us the strength to try again when we fail at first.
Help us to be attentive to one another and let us experience Your presence in our new friends.
It was lovely to see Year 10 parents and carers for the Key Stage 4 information evening last week. Please click on the links if you would like a copy of the slides or the information booklet shared during the evening.
This week we meet our Year 7 parents and carers (many for the first time) at our information evening on Tuesday. This night is a chance to explain how we work at Debenham High School and to meet key staff in each student’s school life over the years ahead. Please click on the link to view our presentation on the evening.
Our commitment to making learning come alive, within and beyond the curriculum begins this week with Year 10 and 11 art trips on Wednesday and Friday respectively. They will be visiting the urban landscape of the dockland areas and Saatchi Gallery in London.
Looking forward to a good week.
