Letter to Parents 16th December
December 16th 2022
Dear Parents and students
This last week of term has flown by. Last Friday, students raised £800 for Save the Children www.savethechildren.org.uk through their non-uniform day. This week, student volunteers have also raised nearly £500 supporting with the Rotary Club Christmas collection at Waitrose. On Monday, our Young Farmers’ club took animals to show children at the Folkestone Children’s Centre, whilst our Drama students have staged performances for Palmarsh, Saltwood and Hythe Bay students as well as all Brockhill students over a number of days during this week. We admire our students’ commitment to their learning and to others.
The Christmas Lunch on Wednesday was very well received by all over an extended lunchtime. The catering offer at Brockhill is one of which we can be really proud.
We are delighted to be sending letters of commendation to the parents of 993 students today for the submission of personal best class and homework assignments. Of the 993 students, 487 have been nominated by 3 or more of their teachers and their parents will also receive a Bronze, Silver or gold Certificate of Commendation.
For Year groups, who are sitting Public Examinations in the summer, we have set work in the Google Classroom for submission soon after the school holiday. Of course, we recognise the need for family time in the coming 2 weeks and the amount set by teachers reflects this.
We hope all students will continue to read for at least 20 minutes a day over the Christmas holiday. Here, is a range of interesting and exciting titles from which to choose. Digital Library: Winter Break
Our website, provides information and links to a range of information and support services potentially useful to students and their families in a variety of situations. Please just scroll down the page HERE
In today’s Family Friday session we also ran through some key safety messages with students for the holiday. Key Safety Messages
Finally, thank you all for your support of us and the students since September. Our parental body are an absolute blessing to this school and we appreciate you immensely.
We will look forward to students returning to Brockhill on Tuesday, January 3rd 2023.
Have a lovely Christmas.
