Welcome back to what promises to be another amazing term here at Hurdsfield! Remember - At Hurdsfield: only our best will do! That includes attendance. Is your attendance awesome?
In support of our new expectations as well as our drive to develop a Growth Mind-set amongst our pupils, we have renamed our school houses after ‘Famous Failures’ from both the past and present.
We are finding out how failure and learning from mistakes is essential to learning because “if you haven’t failed then you haven’t tried anything new” (Albert Einstein)
Our new houses are named after famous people who failed, were told they weren’t any good but continued to push themselves to become the best they can be!
The new house names are below:
Lionel Messi was cut from his school team at 11 years old due to his growth hormone deficiency which made him smaller than most people his age.
Team Captains: Faith and Leon
Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper for “lacking imagination” and having no “original ideas”.
Team Captains: Zavannah and Max
Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was 4 years old and he was told he would “never amount to much!”
Team Captains: Paddy and Leo
JK Rowling say Harry Potter being rejected by 12 publishers before it was finally put into print
Team Captains: Alisha and Megan
At Hurdsfield: only our best will do!
