Rossett News Update - 6 October 2023

Rossett Lioness Comes Home!

We were delighted to welcome Rossett Alumni  and Lioness legend, Rachel Daly back to Rossett School yesterday to meet staff and students and unveil our 3G pitch named in her honour.  Students from all year groups formed a guard of honour welcoming Rachel to the school and she spent time chatting with students, particularly our girls' football teams who aspire to follow in her footsteps.

We were pleased to welcome local media and broadcasters and hope you managed to catch last night's Look North.  Click here to see more.  We would like to thank Rachel, her dog Dexi who joined in the fun, and her team who coordinated the visit - we hope to see you again soon!

Open Day 2023

It was lovely to meet so many pupils and their families on Saturday as we welcomed them to our Open Day.   There was a brilliant buzz of activity and discussion throughout the morning, and we were delighted to receive lots of positive feedback from our visitors.  We were particularly proud of our student ambassadors with many of our visitors commenting how articulate, helpful and informative they were - we couldn't agree more, and are very proud of how they represented our school.

Each faculty took the opportunity to showcase their department, and our subject teachers were eager to convey how our knowledge-rich curriculum leads to exciting and engaging lessons.  From thrilling Science experiments to History where topics were animated by teachers in costume,  our culture of high expectations, academic success and inclusivity were enthusiastically conveyed.

Rossett Heroes

Matthew Scruton  (Year 7) who was nominated by Mr Grainger who wrote, ‘At lunch today Matthew picked up a tie that he found and proceeded to find a member of staff to give it to. He also then engaged in a very polite conversation about how his time at Rossett was going so far. What a polite, respectful and kind young man!’ Matthew, every act of kindness helps to make this school a better place and from Mr Grainger’s account it is quite clear you are a Rossett Hero. 

Also nominated is Elliot Chamberlain (Year 7) who Mr Rogerson has nominated for ‘…helping multiple students to connect to Wi-Fi when we were having one or two issues and for holding doors for the entire class at every opportunity.’ Elliot, it is wonderful to hear you have been supporting others and also being polite and respectful to everybody. What a hero! 

If you were nominated as a Rossett Hero, this week please see Mr Otway for your reward and certificate.  

To find our next Rossett Heroes, we need you! Do you know of any member of the Rossett community that deserves recognition as a Rossett Hero? No matter how big or small you believe the act to be, we want to hear from you - every nominated person will be recognised and congratulated even if they don't make it into the newsletter that particular week.    

 Please email Mr Otway if you have witnessed or experienced an act of kindness that we might not be aware of.    

 "Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end." - Scott Adams
