Animal Assisted Therapy Sessions - Pet Respect
.Buddy and Sookie, along with staff at Pet Respect have been attending the school to deliver Animal Assisted Therapy sessions. The therapy dogs have had a very calming effect on the students involved and we have loved having them in school each week.
The dogs coming in and working with the students has been a success and a very positive experience for all. Our students have been able to build up relationships with the dogs and have even had them doing tricks.
Students have engaged in the sessions really well. Well done to Megan in particular as she has made the most progress so far. Megan was the first student to receive a Certificate of Participation.

Alternative Curriculum Day - Murder Mystery Themed
All students took part in the murder mystery themed Alternative Curriculum Day, which gave the students experiences that they would not get from the usual curriculum. Students spent the day preparing and performing a scene in a murder mystery play, which lead to them being able to solve the crime.
Students took part in a variety of activities throughout the day, including; making props and cooking.
Lots of fun was had by all over the course of the day. Students had the opportunity to try something different with students they would not usually work with.

A two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.

A summary of Active 30:30 by Charlie Year 9
On the day of active 30:30 I was told about many things one of which was about a Wimbledon tennis player who was there, she told us about her ups and down and why she didn’t give up and neither should we. I and the group learnt that it about taking part and involving other people not just winning, we did a few activities such as team building relay race this helped us gain friends and get other people involved who normally wouldn’t. We all had to create our own sort of activity but we had plans in case we got stuck, I think it was good learning from other schools as well as passing ideas on I felt out of my comfort zone but I kind of enjoyed that part of it. Quinn, Connor and Jason all took part and were a big confidence boost for me and members of other schools. Mr Renier and Mr. Brookes both gives us tips and helped us with imaging techniques for the written side of things. All in all we had fun and I think most of the adults did to and I hope to go to future events.
National STEM day focuses on helping kids advance in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and maths. Students discussed their understanding around STEM which helps students ask questions, connect the dots, problem solve and think creatively! Please take a look at our many photo's of a fantastic day!
