Copleston Chronicle First half of Spring Term 2013 — Issue 27

YEAR 9 NEWS A belated Happy New Year to you all. I hope that you had a restful and pleasant break. Year 9 continue to work really hard and are focused on aiming to gain their Key Stage 3 targets by the end of the summer term. The students are generally really well presented and I would encourage you when purchasing new uniform to make sure trousers are not too tight or look like jeans in style or fabric, and skirts are of a decent length and fit. Following on from the holidays, a lot of students have been lucky enough to have received some very expensive electronic gadgets such as iPhones and iPads – please can I ask that these are NOT brought into school as any risk of loss or damage is the students’ responsibility and they are really best kept safely at home. The students have started a number of GCSEs, including their Science course, and it was very pleasing to see the whole Year Group sit a mock paper in correct exam conditions and begin to learn how to behave within the rules for public examinations. By the time of publication, we should have completed the Pathways Parents’/Carers’ evening and gained information about the option process, including the Baccalaureate and what different GCSEs have to offer. The option form needs completing and signing by Friday 15th February, allowing time for the forms to be processed and any issues to be addressed. Although this half of term is always slightly quieter in the way of extra curricular activities, it is pleasing that a Ski trip is being organised which involves some of the year group. Some of our girls were also involved in the County Basketball Semi –Finals, so well done to:Lana Fulcher, Jessica Alexander, Cerys Gunn, Lauren Humbles, Isabella Blowers, Chloe Nadin, Paige Adamberry, Charlotte Gardner, Tanesha-Eve Reed, Eylzza Manan, Madison Drane, Laura Woollard. Some of the boys have also been involved in the County Basketball finals, so well done also to: David Huggins and Adam Darbous. Dates for the diary – Return of Options form - Friday 15th February PD Day-Monday 18th March Reports – Tuesday 26th March Janet Osborne Head of Year 9
