On Monday the 1st of July, Katherine Warington School invited our single joiners to an event
held at Sir John Lawes School. While there are some feeder schools providing lots of students
to us in September, there are other schools where only one or two students are joining us.
The event aimed to ensure that students coming on their own or with very few friends from
their current school got the opportunity to meet students from their new Year 7 cohort.
Mr Church was kind enough to come along and engage students' team work and listening
skills with a drama activity and I was brave enough to invite the students to decorate purple
themed cakes in celebration of our new school colours! Students were really sensible when
undertaking these practical activities and they had the opportunity to make some new friends
along the way.
It was nice to see students swapping numbers at the end of the event and we hope they are
looking forward to meeting again on the 11th July as part of our transition day.
Thank you to all the staff who came along to support students and take part in the question
and answer session at the end. We also want to say a big thank you to Sir John
Lawes for allowing us to use their facilities.
Students certainly used their creative skills in the kitchen as you can see from the photos
