Manchester Week Sports Leaders Tennis Robotics Important dates

It has been quieter in school this week without Year 11 around and it will be quieter still next week as Year 10 go out on work experience. This is a great opportunity for students to get an idea of life in the workplace and helps with decision making about what kind of career you might want in the future. Sometimes you will love your placement and decide that is what you want to do for the rest of your life, and sometimes it will be less enjoyable and perhaps rule out that job as part of your future. Either way, you are representing Cedar Mount in that placement, so be polite, hardworking and willing to learn. Make us proud. We also have students out on residential next week as part of our partnership with The Peace Foundation, learning about conflict resolution and gaining new skills. We had a fantastic letter from Old Hall Drive, thanking our brilliant sports leaders for their help in running sports days last week. It described our students as ' a credit to themselves and to Cedar Mount' and said that they 'conducted themselves magnificently'. I am very proud to hear such welldeserved praise for our students leaders - well done all of you! It was great last night to see lots of families from both Cedar and Rushbrook joining us for our Eid celebration and cricket matches. Well done to all the staff involved, although we won't mention the staff v student/parents cricket result...Next week is the last week for qualifying for the attendance reward trips so be in school on time and stay out of trouble! We will also be having an emphasis on behaviour and uniform over the next 2 weeks so please be prepared for that. Have a great weekend, enjoy the sunshine and hopefully another England win at the World Cup!
