Good morning, Alpacas and happy Friday!

The Graduation Ceremony will be posted on to Google Classroom today at 11am should you want to watch any of the videos and messages again 🙂 You don’t need to watch it live… it will stay on Google Classroom over the summer holidays.

This is our final blog of the year. This week has gone so quickly! Well done to all of you, at school and at home, who have really made such a great effort with the blog. I’m definitely going to miss all your blog comments and talking to you on the phone to make sure you are getting on OK with your work. But you are all so amazing, I know that you will shine as you take your next steps on your journeys.

Miss Simone

Dear Alpacas, we can’t believe we have come to the end of the school year – it seems to have flown by so quickly. Once again we wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone one of you for such a great year. We have seen you all grow in confidence throughout the year and we hope you now know that each of you can take on anything at secondary school – you all have the power to succeed and go on to accomplish great things. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for each and every one of you and remember we will always be here at Herbert Morrison should you ever need us.

Miss Mathieson and Miss Evelyn

live passionately. love endlessly. xx

Today is not only the last day of our blog but sadly it is also the last day Miss Simone is going to be with us at Herbert Morrison.

I’m sure all of you will want to join me in saying a big Goodbye and Thank you to Miss Simone for everything she has done over the many years she has been at Herbert Morrison. So remember to comment on the blog and share your thanks with Miss Simone. It might also be nice to share your favourite memory you have of miss Simone for her to read 🙂

Make sure you all watch out on twitter this morning as we have a special surprise coming for Miss Simone!!!!
