This week the school with continue to learn about the implications around the EU referendum, from both sides, in a week of information led by some Year 10 students. On Thursday morning all students from Year 7 to 10, will vote, having heard the arguments from both sides. With the election itself hard to call at this stage, who knows how this will go.
Also on Thursday, we will welcome students and staff from all out feeder primary schools, as we host the Pyramid Resilience Showcase. Each school will be sharing activities and learning where students have shown particular perseverance. This includes: some gymnastics from Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School; a skipping challenge from Wetheringsett Primary School; a chance to take on one of Creeting St Mary’s chess champions; to see how students from Helmingham Primary School have worked with a growth mindset this year; or to see how students from Earl Soham have planned their own school trip; Bedfield Primary will be sharing their work on mindfulness; or talk to our Peer Mentors and those that they have supported about how this programme support transition to the High School. The Showcase will be open from 4.15pm until 5.30pm. All are welcome to pop in at any time. There will be refreshments available as you take in the different school stalls.
On Wednesday, sixteen Year 8 students will attend the Food and Farming event at Hollowtrees Farm. This has always been a good opportunity for those who wish to work in this field to see the range of career opportunities that are available.
On Tuesday evening, there will an information evening for parents and carers of students in Year 9 who are interested in the Schools Worldwide trip to Namibia in the summer of 2018. This first evening is purely to gauge interest and share details with parents in person.
Finally, on Tuesday and Thursday this week Year 8 students head out on their Geography fieldtrip to Southwold.
So, a quiet week all in all!
