Today, we were delighted to welcome our new Year 7 and Lower Sixth Form students to the school.
The two year groups of excited students met with their form tutors and took part in various welcome activities. Year 7 students enjoyed a treasure hunt around the school grounds, while Lower Sixth Form students relaxed in the common room and were introduced to their teachers. Head of Sixth Form, Mr Oracz, spoke to the year group about the variety of extra-curricular activities available at Westholme.
We also welcomed back our infants, who enjoyed meeting new friends and having fun in the playground.
Staff have worked extremely hard to allow for a seamless transition whilst adhering to Covid-19 regulations, and precautions were put in place in the cafeteria to ensure that students were comfortable during their break for lunch.
Students had smiles on their faces and we look forward to the whole school returning on Monday ahead of the commencement of a full timetable.
