Monday 5th October 2015
For the parents and carers of our Year 10 students attending the GCSE Information Evening last week I am sure it felt like yesterday that their daughter or son started our on their path at Debenham High School; yet this week we welcome those looking at the school for September 2016. We know that moving school and considering that next step is a daunting one for parents and students alike. On Thursday evening we open our doors to share what life at Debenham High School is like.
We hope that during the evening you will get a feel for our distinctive ethos. The main talk takes place at 7.30pm in the main hall but there is plenty of opportunity beforehand to tour the school with our Year 7 guides. If you wish to start your evening with dinner, sampling the fabulous catering at the school please contact Mrs Norman at the main office.
Over the weekend students and staff involved in Bugsy have been busy rehearsing for the main event. Look out for tickets on sale soon for this musical extravaganza. There will be two performances, one on the evening of Thursday 5 November starting at 6.00pm and one on Friday 6 November commencing at 7.00pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
Also this week on Tuesday and Thursday, Year 9 students head out on their Geography Fieldtrip to Aldeburgh; after all this super weather we hope that the barometer stays ‘set fair’. On Thursday Year 11 students will take part in a PSHE afternoon which helps them to be aware of the pressure on young people and consider how they can make sensible choices. Year 8 students will take place in a Camouflage Learning Event on Thursday. This looks like being a great day – let’s just hope that they can find it!
