Advent is the perfect time to clear and prepare the Way
Welcome to Debenham High SchooL
Message from the Headteacher
Monday 15 December
We reach our last week of term with a sense of what is to come over Christmas but also a sense of reflection after our Pray Space for advent. Last week students across Year 7 to 9 spent time in our Pray Space in order to consider a balance to their life and a number of Christian themes. Students spent time at stations encouraging thankfulness, forgiveness, hope and a chance to share their worries. We all need time to sit back and think in this fast paced world as we consider peace and goodwill to all men and women over Christmas.
Last week we heard the array of musical talent at Debenham High School in our Christmas concert. This week we encourage all to come to come to our Carol Service at St Mary’s Church in Debenham at 7.00p.m. on Thursday evening. With readings and carols we hope to get you into the festive spirit.
Students, staff, visitors and parents always compliment our school catering. Speaking to other schools I know that we are rare in the high quality of food that we provide and how many students enjoy sitting down to a healthy dinner every lunchtime. This is in stark contrast to the Grab and Go that you see in many schools these days. This is fully endorsed this week when 580 students have signed up to eat Christmas lunch on Wednesday. The catering staff are bracing themselves for a long lunchtime!
Make sure you have a look at what we have been up to this term in our newsletter Aspire. This will be sent home in a paper form and also available online for you to peruse from Thursday.
For now we wish you all a peaceful and joyous Christmas.
