  • Link to Hope

    In year 8 SME lessons students have been set a piece of homework to advocate for and raise awareness of the charity Link to Hope.

    Link to Hope is a charity to help the poorest and most marginalised people through education and social care and to change lives by releasing communities out of poverty. Link to Hope (formally Link Romania) was established in 1991 in response to the devastating television pictures of the appalling conditions in the orphanages in Romania. A group of Christians in Worthing led by Mark Shipperlee (who later became the charities founder) hired a truck, loaded it with aid and drove to Romania. Link to Hope works with a variety of national organisations on a range of projects throughout Eastern Europe.

    The Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal is their biggest campaign and many of our year 8 Durrington High School students are choosing to make these as part of their homework. They have also asked staff to take part as well. This campaign is run every year before Christmas, where people are invited to fill a shoebox with items for a whole family.  The shoeboxes get sent as gifts at Christmas to those families who need it most; where a lack of food or fuel makes it a struggle to survive and are a priority above presents. Each shoebox brings a little bit of light into families’ lives and letting them know someone is thinking and caring about them.

    If you would like to contribute to a shoebox all the details are on the website https://linktohope.co.uk/

  • Year 11 Parent / Carer Mock Exam Support Evening – Tuesday 7 November

    Dear Parent / Carer

    A key element of preparing our year 11 students for their GCSE examinations in the summer, is the mock examinations which they will sit during the period Monday 4 December – Wednesday 20 December 2017. As well as preparing students for the process of an extensive examination period, they also give students and staff a clear picture about the progress they are making in each of their subjects.

    In order to help parents and carers support our students leading up to and during this mock examination period, we will be running a ‘Parent / Carer Mock Support Evening’, on Tuesday 7 November. This will start at 6.30pm in the main hall.  During the evening we will go through the process of mock examinations, the support available within school and how parents / carers can support students at home.  Much of the input will focus on how students can effectively revise for these examinations so students are welcome to attend as well.

    Year 11 is a pivotal year for our students, so we would also ask you to please support the school by making every effort to ensure that your son / daughter has the best possible attendance and punctuality record throughout the year. When students are not sitting a mock exam, they are still expected to be in normal lessons.

    Please complete the slip below to confirm your attendance at this event and return via your son / daughter’s form tutor. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 7 November.

    Yours sincerely

     

    Mr C Runeckles
    Assistant Director of Research School
