2nd January 19
We were so happy to receive existing Year 6 parents along with prospective and new families, who came along to the recent Secondary School Open House sessions on December 11. The participants were able to see classes, speak with teachers and pupils, and share their questions and ‘wonderings’ as part of a ‘WonderWall’ exercise. They were given a tour of the amazing new Secondary Campus and a sneak preview of the theatre, gym and speciality suites which will be ready in January! Going forward, the School Leadership Team will look at the kinds of inquiries from parents and ensure information and learning sessions are set up for parents so that they know more about ‘life’ in the Secondary School.
In the same week Year 7 and Year 8 pupils had the opportunity to share their learning experience with a friend from outside the School. Over twenty pupils, from both private and public schools in the area, visited during ‘Learn with a Friend Week’. They enjoyed studying and learning at the Secondary School, with their friends, participating in a variety of different subjects such as; Robotics, Food Science, Sport, Drama, Art, Dance, Modern Foreign Languages along with the core subjects, Maths, English, Science and Spanish. This successful week will become a regular event as it was great for our pupils to have the opportunity to show their friends their wonderful School! Positive feedback from parents and pupils included:
Just thought I’d let you know both Phoebe & Sasha had a great day at LES together yesterday’
Thanks again Liz’
