Secondary Polio Points Day 2015

September 21, 2015

Ruth Young, our Secondary Principal, writes: “Our week began with our first ‘Drop Day’ of the year, themed around Polio Points and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. I was thrilled to see Secondary students engaging in cross-year groups to work on projects full of deep learning about Fair Trade, Polio Points and disease management, culminating in a competition to choose the winning presentation from each year group, which were then shared with the whole secondary school on Friday in our pastoral assembly. The feedback from students and staff has been very positive, with many students asking for more days like this, where they can apply their learning in different contexts and develop skills outside of the classroom. Watch this space for details of the second drop day, later this academic year. The academic and pastoral team have been very busy this week, organising our Student Voice elections which will take place this week. I cannot wait for the Hustings for Head Boy and Head Girl, scheduled this Tuesday – I am sure that it will be a close competition for all students involved!”
