During the final week of term Etone was a hive of activity. With parent sessions, Options Evening and of course Valentines Day there was no quiet end to term. However, perhaps the most important event was our Love Attendance Week. The challenge issued was for each Form Group to achieve the highest weekly attendance in each key stage. As part of the week our pupils reflected on why it is so important to make sure we are attending school and making the most of our opportunities.
Today we are please to be able to announce the winners of the competition, mid-year update of attendance and most importantly who stands to achieve glory at the end of the year.
Across the week the form with the highest overall attendance was 11P1 with Mr Randall and Mr Griffiths. Across the week the group had excellent attendance and delivered a blow to Griffin’s 11G1 who had held the top spot for the past 6 weeks. Taking the whole school and KS4 title meant that in second place for KS3 was 8P1, led by Mr Bishop. Similarly 8P1 turned the tied on the Griffin KS3 champions (7G1) and maintained Phoenix’s dominance at the top.
However, bucking the trend of the burning red bird was the Sixth Form, whose 12G1 led by Miss Taylor took the ultimate prize at KS5 to ensure some success was bestowed upon Griffin.
As we go to the ‘half time’ mark, Phoenix are leading the way with attendance with an impressive lead, one which has been closed down in recent weeks by Griffin. It is also worth noting that Centaur and Dragon continue to increase their percentages, setting up true battle royale for the ultimate glory. We look forward to reporting on our many more successes upon return but for now enjoy a well earned rest.
