Call for Parent Volunteers for Network Evening Careers Event: Thursday 7 March from 6.30pm to 8pm
We are holding our annual Network Evening Careers Event for our Year 10 - 13 students. The aim of the evening is for our students to meet parent volunteers who have (or who have had) a professional role and discuss with them their careers either specifically or in general, how they achieved this career and key advice for the next few years. This way they will gain further advice and guidance on a wide variety of careers and pathways they may experience, careers that they might not be aware of, the need to be aspirational, to take risks, but also be flexible whilst at the same time developing the skill of networking and their confidence. Parent volunteers do not have to prepare anything specifically for the evening (though we will ask for a short pen picture of your career that we will share with the students in advance), and it is meant to be an informal event to allow the students and parents to mix and to aid several conversations throughout the evening.
We are still looking for additional parental volunteers, so please support this event if you can. The Network Evening supports the in-school PSHEE sessions where Careers is delivered, the use of online resources that help guide our students and works towards the work experience opportunity that the students have in Years 11 and 12. All parents are therefore welcome to assist and many thanks to those parents who have already committed to supporting this important aspect of our Careers Programme. If you are able to support this event please email email@example.com so that we can send you further information. Many thanks and kindest regards Mr D Leddington - Head of Sixth Form
Performing Arts Timetables
The Performing Arts Timetables are available here. Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change. Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom. The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.
Parents in the Sports Hall
Please can we remind parents that they are not allowed to move around the Sports Centre unsupervised during school events or the school day.
Year 5 and 6 PGL Trip to Marchants Hill
Thank you to everyone who came along to the PGL talk last Tuesday. I hope that you found it informative and that it gave you a chance to have any questions answered regarding our trip in June. If you were unable to make it, you can find a link to the presentation given here. As well as that, two forms were handed out: a medical form, attached, which needs to be filled in and handed into either Mr Woodward or the Prep Office whenever possible, and a kit list provided by PGL, attached. If you have any questions that you would like to ask, please feel free to contact Mr Woodward at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your child's class teacher.
