Day one – Year 9 Spanish Trip
An early start for Year 9 students, many hours travelling and passing through many checkpoints to get here, however I am pleased to say we all arrived safely in Barcelona. The way the students conducted themselves through what could of been a very stressful process was highly commendable and appreciated by all staff. Although very tired, the sun was shining and we were ready for the day.
Once we arrived we checked our bags in at the hostel and headed straight out to see all that Barcelona has to offer. First up we headed to a local shopping centre where the students were allowed to shop, explore and most importantly grab some food to fuel them for the day. Then to the Estadio Nou Camp (Barcelona Football Studium) for a tour around the stadium.
Following this, our tour guide Sunny took us to the bustling street of Las Ramblas and to the world famous food market La Boqueria. The students throughly enjoyed tasting the many Spanish delicacies that the market had to offer.
With tired eyes and tired feet we headed back to the hostel to enjoy a meal together and get some rest before another action packed day tomorrow.

This week Crew Earhart are focusing on the importance of HOWLs. In the community meeting on Friday the students were given their crew average for HOWLs. Currently crew Earhart’s average is:

Work Hard = 3.35

Get Smart = 3.35

Be Kind = 3.46

Although we appear to be achieving well in our HOWLs, there are some students who are not quite achieving the minimum expectation and need crew to help support and challenge them.

Therefore as a crew we will be analysing our own and our peers current attainment in HOWLs and making a conscious effort to help each other to improve. Students will be expected to make academic pledges to ensure they are actively working on this and encouraged to speak to teachers to gain clarity on the grade they were given.

A great first session readdressing the purpose of what it means to work hard, get smart and be kind. I am looking forward to the discussion in crew over the next few days.



X23 Injections

X23 (Year 9) students were today given letters each explaining the injections they are due very soon.  Please could parents/carers look over the letter and sign the consent form to say whether or not you would like your son/daughter to have the injections.  Students know the forms are to be handed into the school office as soon as possible, preferably by the end of this week. Thank you in advance for the speedy response.

Pancakes for breakfast!

This week in appreciation for the hard work towards SLC’s, Earhart spent crew making and eating pancakes together. It was brilliant to see students helping and supporting each throughout the session. A flipping awesome time was had by all!
