Class 12 Update - June 2019

Another busy month in Class 12. We completed our CCEA Life Skills Shopping Accreditation. We have been using the self-service checkouts independently and asking the staff for help finding an item.

We have also looked at Fair trade and designed our own Fair Trade chocolate bars. We had such a wide variety of designs.

A huge well done to everyone in Class 12 as they all received a certificate at Prize Giving, and especially to our two pupils who received individual cups and medals.

We also took part in the Toilet Twinning Sponsored Walk—Thank you for your support with this.

Class 12 Update - February 2019

Class 12 had a very busy February preparing for the Young Enterprise Trade Fair at Rushmere along with the Leavers class. As a team we were very proud of all the products we had made. On the day of the Fair every pupil from Class 12 attended and had an opportunity to sell our lovely products. There was even a little bit of healthy competition between the selling teams! To celebrate our success, we had a Friar Tucks for lunch before half term.

We also enjoyed a lovely joint break for Valentines and Disco with all of Senior School.

We are looking forward to starting our new SRC modules and learning more new skills. Donard Diner continues to be a great success. It is a highlight for both visiting pupils to the café and our serving team of pupils.

Let the hard work continue in Class 12!

Class 12 Update - March 2018

March was all about our Mums in Class 12. We enjoyed making cards and presents for them in class- making raspberry ruffles in cookery. We even did a little Numeracy shopping task for our Mums in Tesco—picking out a gift within a budget and working out our change. We interviewed our Mums for homework and now have some ‘Mum Selfies’ on our notice board!

A lot of members of Class 12 were involved in the official opening of the School Extension through Welcoming committees, Choir etc. Josh was especially proud that his design had been made into a sign which is now located at the entrance door of our School.

Spring has sprung in Class 12 and we are enjoying beginning to care for the plants we are growing.
