Monday 26 January
It was lovely to see so many parents and carers at our Year 7 Parents’ Evening last week. All parents know how we stress the importance of attendance of the students at school, setting a target of 95% attendance for all students. Hence it was pleasing to see that we had a turn out of 96% of parents at the evening. There were many positive comments during the evening. If you feel that there is anything that you wish to follow up further then please get in touch.
All week Year 8 and 9 students will be leading us in their charity events. This includes netball and football competitions between Year 8 and 9, a Bopit and Cycle challenge (hopefully not simultaneously as this would require considerable dexterity and balance), cake sales and a non-uniform day on Friday with a theme of wearing something fluffy. Year 8 and 9 are raising money for Guide Dogs for the Blind and Ebola Charities.
This week we welcome Year 9 Parents and Carers with their daughter or son for the first stage of Year 10 and 11 Options Process. The evening will help to inform the decisions that students make about which subject they wish to study for their last two years at High School. The evening starts are 6.30 with a talk in the main hall explaining what choices can be made, important considerations in those choices and how to seek advice. This is followed at approximately 7.15 with a chance to talk to all subject leaders about what their subject involves and how suitable it might hence be for your daughter or son. There are changes to GCSE subjects in the coming years and even if you may have gone through this process with elder siblings we urge all parents and carers to attend the evening if possible.
You will recall the amazing sum of over £7,000 that The Friends of Debenham High School raised through the Auction of Promises. If you would like to join the team of people that organise such events then please come along to their meeting at 7.00pm on Thursday evening at the school. If you wish to make contact with the team prior to the evening or at any future point please email email@example.com
