ONE WEEK TO GO!
Year 14 Students are getting very excited! Next week we have two Leavers’ Celebration event.
Firstly, our Record of Achievement, which is taking place at New Bridge School on Wednesday 13th July and then on Friday the 15th our Leavers Prom which is being held at St Annes Rugby club at 7pm.
We are hoping as many people as possible will be able to attend both events to celebrate the achievements of our amazing students. If you have any questions, then please get in touch with Jill at the Learning Centre.
This week we held the Learning Centre Transitions evening for year 11 students and their families to come along and meet with the staff who will be supporting them, and to have a look around the Learning Centre. It was lovely to start getting to know everyone, and myself and the staff team are really looking forward to welcoming students in September and supporting and nurturing them through the next stage of their exciting journey.
This week I was delighted to meet with the student council alongside Mr Barker and our Governors Ken Stapleton & Cathy Williams. Their discussions are always insightful, and they continue to inform many Learning Centre developments. Students voice has always been and will remain an intrinsic part of Learning Centre life. Here are some words from one of our Governors:
“I just wanted to say how much I value attending the student council. I am also impressed by the commitment shown by you as leaders. You both make time to attend and to set an expectation that the students views will be listened to and have an impact.
The students on the council have all taken their roles very seriously. They are keen to put forward ideas and to bring concerns to the council. They listen to each other and discuss suggestions in a very mature way.”
(Cathy Williams, Governor)
I’d like to say a huge thank you to this years Student Council. To Aimee, Daniel, Suhban, Daniaal, Phillip and Josh for all their hard work and support whilst serving on the Student Council. They have represented their peers with maturity, understanding, care and empathy in addition to helping drive forward changes at the Learning Centre. You have been amazing guys and I feel proud and privileged to have worked alongside you all this year, you are all inspirational.
We may be coming towards the end of term; however, students are still busy working as we can see from Mr Blackmans report:
“The class, this week, started to prepare a set of drawers for painting by giving the drawers a good sanding to remove a varnish coating. Then they gave it a good wipe over to remove all the dust.”
“We’ve been busy with some potted plants too!”
We are continuing with our recruitment process for TA1’s, as you’ll see on our Facebook page!
Have a great weekend.
