3-2-1: BLAST OFF!
I am so excited and feel so lucky to be the Principal of Haringey 6th Form College. This College has a very special place in my heart for a number of reasons, not least because of the AMAZING staff and students that make our College an exceptional place to be.
I want to begin by extending a HUGE welcome and virtual HUG to all of our AMAZING staff and students. To our returning students – WELCOME HOME! To our new arrivals – WELCOME TO YOUR NEW FAMILY! We have missed having students in the college and are so excited to have you with us.
I always treat the new academic year in the same way that most people treat the start of the calendar year in January. I use it as a time to set new routines or form new habits, and use it as an opportunity to start afresh. I would encourage you to do the same – the start of the new college year is an ideal opportunity for us all to set a new vision of what the coming year will be like and then drive our way to that vision as we move through the year. Things don’t always go to plan, but if we have a vision and an end goal it is easier for us all to stay on course. This is what we will do here at Haringey 6th Form College, in fact that is what we have always done – we keep on moving. You will have seen from Russ’ update that we keep driving ahead and you are now arriving or returning to an even better college! #Ambition #Success
Being part of #TeamHaringey6 is a true experience, some might say it’s a rite of passage. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk - believe me when I say, my Fitbit has been doing overtime getting ready for your arrival! Things continue to move at pace at this absolutely AMAZING College. Not only do we have fantastic new students and further improved facilities - we have some amazingly talented new staff joining us, a brand new careers-based curriculum and lots of new and exciting teaching and learning projects. We pride ourselves on doing things differently, and we are kicking this year off with an EXTENSION of Black History Month – we are taking this to the next level with a year-long PARTY for the commemoration, celebration and inspiration of Black Past, Present and Future - make sure you get involved! #DiscoverTheDifference #MoreThanACollege
We cannot wait to have you here with us for what promises to be ANOTHER FABULOUS year here at Haringey 6th Form College.
I look forward to working for you and with you this coming year – FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS, you’re going to have the time of your life!
