Last week students in X25 had two experts to come and speak to them with regards to homelessness and the Food banks.
Pat Hagan from Doncaster Council came and spoke to Admiral about the work his team is doing in Doncaster to support homeless people and get them alternative accommodation and support.
Skipper spoke with a Mary from a Food Bank and discussed why people have to sometimes use food banks and the type of food that is given out.
Students found the experts incredibly informative about these subjects
X22 are working on their coursework for Art, Craft and Design; through the expedition ‘Identity’. Here are some pieces of work that reflect our ‘Habits of Work and Learning’:Getting Smart and Working Hard! The craftsmanship and quality of the work is really developing. Well done and keep up the beautiful work!
Students have also independently researched what ‘identity’ means to them and looked at artists work to influence their ideas. This is evident in the unique work they are producing.
A brilliant example of beautiful work by Brandon Nilsen in crew Davison after grappling hard with a tricky topic in chemistry in extended study with Mr Campbell.
Great work Brandon – and keep it up for your mock exams starting next week!
The extra revision for Statistics on Monday will not start until 11.45.
Which means students do not have to be in school until the session begins.
Can all students therefore arrive for 11.30.
Best wishes and thank you for your support
Crew Tomlinson X25 are preparing hard for their next SLC, reflecting on last term’s work, and were helped by Crew Bronte yesterday morning. Well done to both crews, and good luck to Crew Tomlinson for next week!
Having gone out today to check some parts of the upcoming Bronze route can I remind parents, staff & students how important it is it to e prepared for all weather, even in the SUMMER months as it was cold & wet out there. Wooly hats, gloves and waterproofs are part of the Mandatory kit list for all expeditions.
It’s coming up to that time of year when sadly some of our pioneering students will be leaving us.
We have been asked by a few parents about returning locker keys. We are able to do this from today, up until results day. If students are planning on staying for Post-16 we are able to collect the XP key in and prepare a new locker in the Post-16 area at XP East ready for their return in August. This just means there is no need to hand money back out for you to pay it again, although if you would prefer to do it that way we can accommodate it.
The only condition is that lockers will be checked on return of the key before the money is refunded. As long as there is no damage to the locker and all items have been removed the deposit will be returned immediately. The new Year 7 students will be issued with these lockers and we would love for them get them in the same condition that X21 had them from new.
Crew Rosa Parks have been extremely busy preparing for their SLCs. They have spent a great deal of time looking at their HOWLS alongside their expedition work and putting it all together in the form of a presentation.
They are looking forward to sharing this with their families. A quick reminder to parents that SLCs begin next week.
