PIP Poster from Contact 14th Jan 19
Last week students from post 16 took part in a work experience challenge on Ouseburn Farm. This involved learning about the different animals on the farm, taking part in cleaning out the animals cages, making a scrapbook and also watching a video teaching them about what animals get used for on the farm.
The students found it was a fun way to learn and had a great week.
On Tuesday the 9th of May a group of girls from across the school took part in Girls Sports. The activities were “TEAM WORK”. The girls took part in different games and team building exercises to encourage them to work together. They finished off with a game of football and were all presented with a medal to reward their hard work and participation. WELL DONE GIRLS!
Some post 16 students have been to St Johns Church for their Community Challenge lesson. It is also part of their volunteering section for Duke of Edinburgh Award. During the visit, the students are treat to tea and biscuits and a chat with the residents of the local community The students have also made bat boxes and hedgehog houses for the church yard.
