Headteachers’ Message October 2014

On Tuesday 11th November 2014 the country will fall silent for two minutes. This marks the end of the First World War but also symbolises the huge sacrifice made by so many people in history in order to ensure freedom, peace and tolerance for our future generations. Arthur Terry students and staff are honoured to be attending the Sutton Coldfield Remembrance Day events on Sunday and will be placing a wreath from our whole school community to show our respect for the selfless acts of courage, compassion and strength that have been displayed over the years. In school we will be remembering these acts through key lessons and dedicated assemblies. It is so important to remember the past, but also how it has shaped the future and the immense influence that it has on defining who we are, who we want to be and the kind of society that we want to belong to. For the Arthur Terry community that is love for one another, respect for each other, tolerance to everyone around us and compassion for those less fortunate. These qualities are embodied in the wonderful students, staff, parents, and governors who we are privileged to work alongside each day. Yours faithfully, Neil Warner and Richard Gill Headteachers
