A Fond Farewell...
Our Year 11 Leavers Assembly
By Vickie Perkins
Friday 25th June 2021, was the day we bid farewell to our Year 11 students. After a roller coaster of a ride through their teenage years, the students spent their last afternoon with staff and peers to say goodbye to their time at Quorn Hall School, with pizza, cake and speeches.
It has been an honour to be one of the members of staff that have helped them to grow from small acorns when they arrived and develop into strong, independent young citizens of our future.
During the celebrations, staff took time to reflect and share stories about the students and their time at the school and it was lovely to see how much each of us have been touched by the relationships that we have built with them all.
I was privileged to present each and every one of them with an engraved compass to symbolise the way to go on to their next chapter of their journey but also help them find their way back to us to share with the school their achievements and growth in the outside world.
I wish each and every one of them every success in their life and as always and forever, dare them to dream big!
Dare to dream - Wendy Silva
Close your eyes and let
Your imagination fly away.
See a picture of where
you wish to be one day.
Let the colours of your
Heart take command
to paint the picture of your
dream and place it in your hand.
Hold on tightly and nurture it
but allow it room to grow.
When you reach your dream,
Open your hand and let it go.
Close your eyes and search for
another, caring for it as before.
Never stop searching, achieving and
letting go, for that’s what dreams are for.
