On Thursday, we are having our school census. This is used to calculate how much funding the school will get so it is imperative that as many pupils as possible attend school.

This week's Famous Brits Assemblies was about Mary Seacole, who was a British-Jamaican nurse, healer and businesswoman. Mary set up the "British Hotel" behind the lines during the Crimean War, which she described as "a mess-table and comfortable quarters for sick and convalescent officers", and nursed many of them back to health.
