We are fast approaching the end of our second term, so we are nearly half way through the academic year! While we do not wish to place undue stress on our senior students, it is important that they view the upcoming break as a study break, not a holiday, and have a plan for study spread throughout the three weeks. School Derived Grade exams take place in Week 5 of Term 3 so careful preparation is required.

At this time of the year - deep midwinter, lots of colds and coughs, everyone a bit tired - it can be easy to start being niggly and negative and we were reminded in assembly this week by Mr Hardy that, in fact, we should be building one another up rather than deflating and tearing one another down. There is an old proverb which advises that before speaking you should ask yourself three questions about what you are about to say. Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? If it isn’t all of those things, it is best to say nothing at all. The world is full of people who feel compelled to belittle, criticise and otherwise put down as many people as they can, either in person or online. Let’s make Marsden Whitby the complete opposite of that and spend our time building one another up. It would make the miseries of winter much easier to bear and, as we continue into summer, we would all reap the benefit of that positive, appreciative and uplifting community.
