From the Headmaster
Dear Campion Families,
As we move through these uncertain times and Virtual School continues to be the norm a little while longer I am constantly encouraged by the enthusiasm the community has to be involved with lessons, but also beyond.
I was delighted to see that the philanthropic spirit of the Campion Community has been highlighted. This week “Arcturos” acknowledged the level of support given it by Campion by raising a banner at their headquarters that highlighted Campion School as one of their sponsors. “Arcturos”, founded in 1992, is an NGO that works to protect flora, fauna and wildlife in Greece and elsewhere. So not only does it highlight our community’s commitment to fundraising, but also our community’s commitment to protecting the environment.
I was also highly impressed by the number of students who got involved with the Platon School Model United Nations (PSMUN). Not only did our pupils show their enthusiasm by taking part, but many were driving forces for the success of the PSMUN. Quite rightly they were applauded for their efforts.
Our Junior School children are no less impressive in their desire to go above and beyond their classroom education. Many of them got involved in “The Times Tables Rockstars”. Campion managed to finish 13th in this global competition. There were also some outstanding individual and class performances. Well done to everyone who took part.
I should also like to say thank you to all those parents who have taken time out of their busy lives to attend virtual parents’ evenings this week. They went very well and resulted in a lot of focussed and fruitful conversations.
As ever the best way to keep our community healthy is to make sensible decisions and take thoughtful precautions against COVID 19 for you and your family. If each family does this the wider community will benefit.
Stay safe and be kind.
