This week I would like to celebrate the work of the PE team in organising a range of extra-curricular activities that will develop student's leadership skills, resilience, health and well-being. There has been so much going on this week. On Tuesday we had the primary school change4life festival. The Conisborough Student Sports Crew engaged with Year 3 and 4 students from St George's and Sandhurst Primary Schools in healthy activities. We have had two basketball matches, one at home on Monday and one away at Brampton Manor Academy. In addition the ice skating programme continues for a group of Year 7 students as well as the 12 week Rookie Lifeguard programme. Students are learning basic life-saving skills and progressing to intermediate stages of a life guard.
This week Mr Dyer launched the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme to Year 9 students. Applications for places on to the programme were provided to students and 33 students have expressed their interest in completing the award. The programme is divided into 3 levels, bronze, silver and gold. We aim to deliver the bronze this year.
A Bronze programme has 4 sections, Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. Students must complete a minimum of 3 months activity for each of these sections and plan / train for a 2 day (1 night) expedition.
This week our school council met with Councillor Mark Ingleby and the 'Friends of Foster Park' to contribute to the consultation around ways to improve the park.
It has been a very important week for Year 8 as they choose their GCSE option subjects ready for next year. Parents had the opportunity to speak to their child's subject teachers as they go into the final term of KS3. It was great to see so many parents attending this important evening.
You will have received an end of term letter via your child explaining the arrangements for the end of term and the start of the new term. We will be holding a non-uniform day on the last day of term, Friday 31 March. A Year 11 student wrote formally to me with this proposal and it is to raise funds for Alzheimers Research UK (ARUK).
Enjoy the Easter break.
