Warren House Rewards Round Up Summer 2018

Hello Warren House!

Congratulations on making it to the end of academic year 2018, doesn’t it feel like this year has been a particularly long one, but how lovely it has been to have such beautiful weather to see us into the summer holidays.

Unfortunately, our resident journalist, Mia Brien, is about to embark on the annual year 10 trip to the South of France so she has left the job of ‘term review’ to her favourite house leader.

Warren House has to say farewell to three very well-loved form tutors: Miss Dove, Miss Laura Duffy and Mr Farrell are moving on to brand new schools for September. Although Warren House will not be the same without you, we wish you the best of luck and hope that you won’t miss us too much. We are sure that Miss Duffy will have a wonderful wedding day and hope that the Irish weather will be kind to you!

DofE update

As we close on the DofE expedition season, we would like to say a final big thank you and well done to all students involved in all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award this year. Your hard work and commitment was exemplary, and we are delighted that you all passed your expeditions. A separate thank you must go to all teachers involved in all trips to support the students.

To finalise your award, all other sections (Physical, Skill and Volunteering) must be completed on eDofE before the 1st of October; with our Awards Evening following in November. If you have any difficulties, please see Miss Rawson.

Finally, this past week annual participant figures for the DofE Award were shared across the area. We are very pleased to have the highest number of award starts (totalling 203 across all levels) and awards achieved (totalling 144 across all levels) over the past year within the Thurrock area. Even better, we are incredibly happy to announce that our numbers have risen even further next year, with a current 180 signed up for Bronze, 108 for Silver, and a view to run Gold for the second time. We, as a school, are very proud of these high levels of involvement and would like to thank all students, staff, parents and the local community for their support. We look forward to working with the new cohorts over the course of the next year!

We are appealing for help regarding the recent mindless, repeated break-ins at Chadwell Primary School.

Over the last two weekends, the school has been broken into on a number of occasions and the criminals have caused significant damage.
This has created upset for pupils and staff and costs considerable amounts of money to repair the damage.
This is money that cannot then be spent on the children.

These children are part of your local community. If you have any information, please contact the school on: 01375 843280 or Crimestoppers on: 0800 555111.

Year 8 visit Stifford Clays Primary School

Today, Miss McGrane and Miss Wilding took 10 students to Stifford Clays Primary School.

Whilst there, they went into Reception and shared the KS1 reading books which they had been making the previous half term. The work they had produced was outstanding and the behaviour they demonstrated whilst on the trip was phenomenal.

All of our students showed great maturity and leadership skills and we were both extremely proud of what we saw.

Well done year 8!

Year 9 Community Support Programme

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who promoted and supported the Year 9 Community Support Programme this year. Through your efforts, a total of 570 individual food items (mainly tinned and other non-perishable) were collected and donated to Thurrock Food Bank yesterday. The Food Bank is very appreciative of your kindness, knowing the food items will make a significant impact on many vulnerable families in Thurrock.
