Make It Stick Resources

Thank you to all Parents/Carers who attended our ‘Make it Stick – Help your child revise’ evening last night.

If you were unable to attend, don’t worry. You can view the evening presentation here and the Parent ‘Make it Stick Booklet’ here.

Please check the curriculum tab on our website later this week for a dedicated ‘Revision – Make it Stick’ area. This will include a number of useful resources and information regarding revision strategies to help your child revise for their upcoming GCSE examinations.

Christmas Jumper Exchange

The environmental costs of fashion…Every year we all buy a Christmas jumper, but only wear it once or twice! How many jumpers have you got from previous years?

There has been a lot in the news recently about the devastating impact of toxic chemicals used in growing cotton. Polyester is the most popular fabric used for fashion. But when polyester garments are washed in domestic washing machines, they shed microfibers that add to the increasing levels of plastic in our oceans.

On Friday 30th November you will be able to recycle your old Christmas jumper and purchase a new one in time for this year’s Santa Dash! All jumpers will cost just £3 – a bargain!

If you have an old Christmas Jumper, bring it into school during morning registration between 21st-29th November, washed and ready to sell, and drop it off at the atrium. Our Christmas jumper sale will take place on Friday 30th November in the main hall during break time.

Don’t go adding to the issues we are faced with, recycle and support a good cause!

Trainers for Africa!

A huge thank you to all who donated trainers for our Trainers for Africa appeal!

We have had such a good response to this appeal and received the last donations of trainers earlier this week. Donated trainers are now in the process of being packed and will be sent out to the township schools we visited during our summer sports tour – they really will make a difference!

Once again thank you for your generosity.
