SHOWCASE DAY SPEECHES: THE BRIDGE
At Barr’s Hill School, our students are at the heart of everything we do. We have high aspirations and challenging
expectations for each and every one of our students and provide a learning environment and guidance to ensure these are met.
Just before the half-term, students prepared and made their speeches for Showcase Day – which were then read out to staff and parents. We would like to share some of the fantastic speeches below:
English was one of the subjects I wasn’t too skilled at but I got Secure in my first assessment and I was pretty happy about the score but then my teacher Ms. Mattu suggested that I should work even harder so I could improve and a few weeks later I was sitting in my chair waiting for the results and guess what? I had improved! I was so happy and glad I didn’t let Miss down.
Equality, teamwork and non-discrimination are what PRIDE means to me. I stands for Individual. I am a lion not a sheep so I don’t follow the crowd. I like to stand out and do what is best for me and my education. D stands for Determined and is the one that I struggle with. Most of the time I want to give up but I have tried my hardest to persevere to the point where I achieved 7 Expert in my English assessment. I believe that anything can be achieved in the Bridge and at Barr’s Hill with the wonderful teachers on your side.
I am from Poland. I am proud of Create and Perform when I create music on the keyboard because before I came to this school, I couldn’t play on the keyboard and now I can play well. I am proud of my work in English and vocabulary because before I came to England I could not speak this language and now I can speak well and I learn new words quickly. I really like maths because when I finish I can help other people who don’t understand the work.
PRIDE is power! I am proud of my RE assessment where I achieved Expert. I am thankful for making new great friends and for all the teachers who have been excellent in supporting me. I have loved learning new things and being part of the Bridge.
