RGHS Weekly Bulletin 22 November 2018

Dear RGHS Parents and learners

I sincerely trust that these examinations have been a time for each girl to evaluate her progress over the year and to recognize areas for improvement.  This is a continuous process and the best learning occurs when we can learn from mistakes.  It is important to remember that these five years at high school are a process of discovering those pursuits that intellectually challenge and satisfy.  These years will be a basis for future choices and should form the foundation for many happy years in their chosen careers or quests.

Please be assured that as a school we are committed to providing a safe environment where all feel they belong while at the same time encouraging academic excellence, creative thinking and acceptance of personal responsibility.

We are aware of the negative press surrounding our brand. On the positive side, this has opened new, exciting opportunities for dialogue and engagement with past pupils.

The past few weeks have reminded me of Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If” and I trust that as a leadership team we have captured its essence.
