This week was a more informal discussion with 4 students from each mentor group in the Drama Studio. Here's what they had to say... quite a bit I think you'll agree!:
Q: Can technology lesson be longer?
A: DT lessons are linked to IT lessons, and having 2 -hour IT lessons would be difficult. However, we may be able to have DT lessons at the end of the day so students can continue into OOSHL. We will investigate further.
Q: Can we choose what tasks we do in lessons like we have in maths?
A: We will ask maths to share this good practice with other subjects.
Q: Can chess club start again?
A: We will ask Mr Hudson who is responsible for OOSHL.
Q: Even though both of our rugby teams have recently beaten Finham Park, can we have more practice on grass?
A: Today Mr Plester has met someone about having better access to sports fields at a local primary school. There will hopefully be more news about that after half term. Also the artificial pitch will be ready to use very shortly.
Q: Can only student leaders go to Dol-y-Moch?
A: The trip is a leadership trip, however, if some students can't attend there will be a reserve list. Please see Mrs Brake about this.
Q: When will the year 8 options taster lessons be?
A; After half term.
Q: Can we have a wider variety of food in the mornings for breakfast?
A: We will ask the refectory staff.
Q: Can we have more residential trips?
A: Year 7 have a residential trip in the summer term.
Q: Can we take our phones on trips?
A: Yes, but at your own risk. However, it may depend on the trip- as for some trips it wouldn't be suitable.
A: We already have some! You will be using them from September.
Q: Can we get a chin up bar in the Fitness Suite?
A: We will investigate further, however there is not a lot of space in there as it is already full of equipment.
