Reminder POL X24 Thursday 5th December

Just a quick reminder for X24 Parents and Carers. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday .

Students in X24 Skipper and Admiral will be presenting their learning from our expedition Small Change on 5th December at 4.30pm in XP East School. Students have been working towards a number of Learning Targets focused on the GCSE text A Christmas Carol and the historical context of the period when Dickens produced A Christmas Carol. We like to invite you to hear from your son or daughter and see the work they have produced in order to answer the guiding question Why do we still need charity?  

We will also be asking, if possible, for donations to support the work of the Balby Church food and clothing bank.

FOR THE FOOD BANK: food that just requires hot water adding: e.g Instant porridge, Cup Soups, Mug shots, Instant noodles and Pot noodles (Supermarket own brands are ideal) FOR THE CLOTHES BANK: all types but the greatest demand is for jeans, joggers for men and all clothes for children aged 6-18.

 

Thank you in advance the Year 9 Team

X24 Service Learning at ‘The Big Sort’

Before half term and over the coming weeks students in X24 will be carrying out service learning at ‘The Big Sort’ located in Balby Church. The Church runs a clothing, homeware and food bank for the people of Balby and the surrounding areas. Each Monday all donations are sorted, hung and grouped ready to be given out to those in need. The volunteers at Balby Church have been really impressed with the compassion and hard work of students during their service learning. Hopefully this experience will help students to develop their thoughts on our guiding question ‘Why do we still need charity?’

 

 

C22 POL An Inspector Calls

Just as a reminder that the C22 POL will be on Wednesday 4th July for Skipper and Thursday 5th July for Admiral, commencing at 6pm in XP East.

Before the performance, students will be expected to stay for a full dress rehearsal from 3.30pm. Please ensure students are provided with a packed lunch with this in mind, as students will not have time to leave school.

Also, each student needs to be dressed in full black clothing for the performance.

We would really appreciate if you could continue to help your son/daughter learn their lines as the performance draws nearer.

Thanks for your continued support. Looking forward to seeing you there!

C22 POL

I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL performance of An Inspector Calls will be on Wednesday the 4th July for SKIPPER and Thursday the 5th July for ADMIRAL, from 6pm.

We’d really appreciate if you could help your child to learn his/her lines from their scripts in the meantime. The sooner students learn these the better the performances will be!

Thanks, as always, for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there!
