The Willow Weekly

The Willow Weekly is a weekly newsletter produced by a team of four Willow parents. Ali is the photographer, Caroline and Tricia are the editors and Claudette the support who ensures the Willow Weekly gets emailed to everyone every Friday morning.

Its audience consists of approximately 700 parents and teaching staff. This weekly newsletter showcases the activities and achievements of all the boys. Events of every school week in Willow are shown through the eyes of the boys.

Weekly articles consist of Form News where all 25 classes feature during the course of the academic year. Each class is given an opportunity to show everyone what they have done during that particular week.

Weekly sports updates and match details/results are given by Mr Rory Crinion, Gamesmaster. There is also a sponsored weekly quiz which give out a Rhino Rugby ball to the winner. A photo of the lucky winner with his ball has proven very popular!

In his Principal’s Piece, Mr Docherty updates the Willow community on his weekly news and inspires us with his Quote of the Week !

Regular updates from the Arts Department ensures everyone is kept informed with regard to music in Willow.

There are also monthly features consisting of Birthday Corner, Willow International Network, Willow Xtra and Spirit of Willow Awards.

Being such an incredibly busy school, special attention is also given to the various events happening outside of the normal school week, During the year there is Book Week, Grandparents’ Day, STEM Week, Annual WPA Social, 4th Form Cake Sale in aid of St. Vincent’s de Paul, Nativity plays, 5th Form Musical, Arts Week, Songs in the Park, Spring Fair, First Communion and 6th Form Confirmation. A very busy school indeed !!

The Willow Weekly team love to hear that the boys are reading the weekly newsletter. It is their news after all ! We would encourage all teachers to take ten minutes every Friday morning to ROW with the boys – Read Our Willow Weekly !

Alongside the school website and App, the Willow Weekly Newsletter is the go-to place for all updates in the calendar and gives a special insight into all events, from the boy's perspective. It is a place for the boys to tell their stories.
