Current news from Haybridge High School and Sixth Form
Students and teachers at Haybridge are looking forward to increasingly longer daylight and slightly warmer days as spring approaches. We are committed to doing all that we can to reduce our carbon and plastic footprints in the areas of gas and electricity consumption as well as single-use plastics. Members of the Executive Student Council will be leading assemblies and staff briefings this month on the various strategies we are putting in place with the school community to play our part.
We are pleased to say that a dozen members of staff are now trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid, a nationally recognised qualification for those working with young people from 8-18 years of age. In addition to this many of the trainee teachers who are learning their profession with us at Haybridge and partner schools are also being trained, enabling them to offer support with increased confidence.
Our fundraising for Guide Dogs continues apace – we are nearly half-way to our goal of £2500 which would enable us to sponsor and name a puppy, about which we would then receive regular updates. We are so pleased students voted to support this extraordinary charity which has such a profound impact on people’s lives.
In closing, can we remind you that tickets for ‘School of Rock’ are on sale from school reception – rehearsals are under way and promise a fantastic show.
