Thought For The Day – Monday 6th March 2023
March is an important month, particularly for GCSE and A-Level students, as momentum builds to the examinations.
There are 70 days, including weekends and the Easter vacation, until the GCSEs start in full.
Enrichment opportunities also continue. These vital activities help us become healthier, happier and more helpful people.
The fabulous TBSHS’ Music Festival continues this week, building up to the Finale Concert and the award of Musician of the Year. Thank you to Mr. Emery, Mr. Mead and all Music staff and students for all their continued dedication and inspiration.
Importantly, this week is also National Careers Week. Thank you to Mrs. Jonas for all her wonderful work. This is a good opportunity to think about what career and careers you are working towards in the future. This can be provide important motivation in the present.
TBSHS is also about building a better world for everyone. March is Women’s History Month and Wednesday is International Women’s Day. Students are invited to wear ONE item of clothing in a different, and bright, if possible, colour with your normal school uniform. No trainers please. There is no charge for this awareness day, but we will be doing a bucket collection and cookie sale for Red Kite, a local charity.
On Saturday and Sunday, Manchester City Football Club paid tribute to the Suffragettes and Emmeline Pankhurst. Manchester-born Pankhurst helped found the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in 1903, which called for the right for women to vote. Manchester City’s women’s and men’s teams wore a shirt in the WSPU colours of green, white and purple.
Wear your different colour on Wednesday.
