Skyla Richards, The Abbey School’s very own Y13 Business Studies student, organised an eye-opening and professional careers fair.
Attended by over 200 students from both KS4 and KS5, pupils got the opportunity to talk with professionals about their future career paths through apprenticeships, college, or university.
The students were able to explore and reflect on a wide array of choices awaiting them ahead.
The Abbey School have delivered assemblies to all year groups from 7- 11 promoting Safer Internet day and how to stay safe online. All Key Stage 3 and 4 groups have received a lesson on e-Safety in their PSHE lessons in term 3 and in addition, Key Stage 3 classes all have e-safety lessons as part of their Computer Science Scheme of Work in term 1.
Safer Internet Day 2016 will be celebrated globally on Tuesday 9th February with the slogan ‘Play your part for a better internet’.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
A selected group of year seven and year eight boys were fortunate enough to be invited to watch the England Rugby Team train at Twickenham. It was a great experience for the boys to visit the home of English Rugby, for most this was their first experience of professional rugby. The trip will hopefully inspire the boys to lead by example in their own upcoming fixtures. Next year the school hopes to secure tickets for one of the 6 Nations matches as in previous years.
As part of their RE homework, and this term’s study on Religious Philosophy of meeting God through nature, Y10 have been challenged to take a photo of the natural environment reflecting its Awe & Wonder.
This could be anything at all:
• A landscape
• A sunset/sunrise
• A seascape
To inspire you, here is a photo of a sunset on the grounds of the Abbey School, taken by our very own Miss Day.
Photos need to be emailed in to your RE teacher by the 07 February 2016. The winning photos will be displayed around school, and on the website.The taker of the overall winning photo will get a £10 Amazon voucher...so get snapping!
