Phoebe and Leila's shooting was outstanding throughout and the girls racked up the goals. The whole team played well defensively to keep a clean sheet and thoroughly deserved to win. The Player of the match was Leila. Mr M Barnard https://t.co/or5YTMnrIz

Netball Year 7 - Beacon 15 - Reigate 0 The year 7 girls recorded their biggest win of the season so far away at Reigate. Despite the drizzly conditions, The Beacon were sharp and accurate in their passing and defence. https://t.co/iH9qj3Jt5K

A real combative performance from both sides meant it was close until the end when Jacob was put through on goal to make it 2-0 and game over. Beacon now face Glyn or Carshalton Boys in the next round! TGA https://t.co/IwXTbRTTHJ

It was not long before this paid off as Jack's flick at the near post meant the ball dropped nicely for George to spectacularly overhead kick the ball to loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-0 Beacon; cue Beacon celebrations. https://t.co/bfZtDiJLkK

The threat of Jamie's long throw was evident in the first half so at half time a strategy was formed. https://t.co/5uKJQTWhWy

A few back to back injuries for Beacon meant we changed positions of players which actually allowed us to gain control of key areas of the pitch that Greenshaw had dominated at the start and also launch our own attacks. At half time it was an even 0-0. https://t.co/R4DV7nClr8

The year 11 football team marched on in the Surrey Cup thanks to a hard fought 2-0 victory over Greenshaw. The game started with Greenshaw slightly on top and creating a couple of chances but none to worry Ryan in goal. https://t.co/QcygRLDrkn

MESSAGE FROM MRS RENNIE

It is a real honour to be given the opportunity to write this week’s Newsletter introduction, especially as it is the first of the New Year.

January is always a time when we as a staff come together to refocus upon our priorities. It is also a time to consider how best to support students in the push towards our School Values of ‘Excellence and Respect’ over the weeks and months ahead, especially towards the external exam periods.

This has led me to consider our opportunities for ‘New Starts and New Beginnings’. As with every new year comes a blank new chapter for us to write our own story.

I often use the following sayings with our staff and students: 

  1. Every day is a GOOD day
  2. Flip the coin to the shiny side

I genuinely believe, no matter how difficult, challenging or tough a day may seem there will always be some good to be found, because there is always a shiny side we can allow ourselves to look towards. Even if your day has been tough, you have a whole opportunity for a brand-new day tomorrow, when you wake it will be a new day and ‘every day is a good day’.

January allows us the chance to consider and as we begin to move through the month, we have stopped to consider our collective new starts and new beginnings, both professionally and personally.

At school this week, we have started 2022 by reviewing some of our systems and practices and we are now utilising changes to our ClassCharts system and responding to feedback to make this system more suited for our current needs. Mr Thirkill is making a new beginning with our Year 11 students in relation to their revision strategies and the PE Department have made a great new start with some fantastic results in our new year fixtures programme.

The whole staff are making new beginnings with our Learning and Teaching strategies in relation to key priorities across the school, every one of our Year 7 cohort are making a new beginning in their new Faculty class sets and all students at The Beacon School have the chance for a new start in every lesson in each of their subject areas.

Over the last few days I have asked many of our staff what are their aims and goals for 2022, what are their opportunities for new starts and new beginnings, so as to make sure that every day is a good day.

I have had some great responses, below are just a few:

  • To learn mosaic crochet
  • To gain a grading in my Kendo lessons
  • To go for longer walks with the family dog
  • To get outdoors more to become stronger and fitter for those bike rides
  • To reconnect in person with my family and friends

I have had the same aim for every new year since I was about 12 years old, and this is to make ‘The New Year ahead, better than the old year gone by’. I have an old Kilner Jar at home with a note pad sat next to it. It begins the year empty on January 1st and as we go through the year, I write statements or accomplishments to put in the jar. Then on Hogmanay of each year, I open the old jar and look through the notes from the year which prove to me that every day really is a good day.

What will we write this year to go into our Kilner Jar, what are your aims and goals for 2022, what are we all going to do to ensure that ‘every day is a good day’?

Let’s make a brilliant ‘New Start and New Beginning’ in everything we do in The Beacon School Community in 2022!

Take care of yourselves, and each other.

Mrs Rennie
