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 (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.
This week in Earhart’s Duke of Edinburgh session students worked together to plan their walking routes for their qualifying expedition. It was lovely to see students working together and supporting each other through this process.
