Introduction Friday afternoon Enrichment programme for Years 11-13 Aspire to try something new Inquire about the world we live in Excel at what you do Belong and contribute to your local and global community The aims of the programme are To provide opportunities to try something different.

• • To see the island from different perspectives. • To develop self reliance and confidence. • To give something back to the local community. • To encourage the ideas of lifelong learning.

Over the three years you will have participated in a range of programmes spanning the 3 different sections. We hope that you will all actively learn from the experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom and may end up discovering a new pastime.

• Your Physical Self - We should all spend time doing some form of exercise and in this

section you have choices from more traditional sports which you may not have tried at school to various opportunities to explore the island from a different active perspective.

• Your Caring Self - This encompasses a host of community and social service activities. Some examples include helping children with special needs, environmental work and working towards fair trade status for the school.

• Your Future Self - In this section you will have a variety of

different opportunities which hopefully will lead you on to a lifetime of learning new and interesting skills, some are creative while others are language or work related.

You will choose 2 different programmes in the year. The D of E and Mexico activities both run for the whole year and need a full commitment of time. Most activities will take place from 2.00 - 3.30pm while some for year 12 and 13 will start and finish earlier or many may go on beyond the normal school day. At the end of each term you will be expected to reflect on what you have done and record some of your experiences which could then be used in your personal statement and CV.

This will take place at Fort Regent and we are lucky to have an experienced island coach to help with this. You will learn how to play the game and may even follow in the footsteps of some of last year’s students and become part of the local Jersey team competing in inter insulars. This is a 1 term volleyball programme on basic skills and game play. You will be coached by an experienced Jersey Ladies coach - Mrs De Rue. Volleyball is a team game that is played indoors in groups of 6. It is in the top ten as one of the world’s most popular sports and in the UK it is starting to grow in popularity. It’s a great way to have fun, keep fit and develop new skills. For those who take to this sport, the Jersey Volleyball Association runs a youth team that plays in the volleyball league and has had girls from JCG play an important role in this team in the past. There are also beach tournaments at the Gunsite in the summer, which may be of interest to those who enjoy the sun!

Environment Volunteers This is for students who are interested in the local environment who would like the chance to give something back to the island and to help preserve our amazing ecosystems and landscapes. This is to be run in conjunction with the Environment department and their ecoactive team. We may also work with the team of Rangers and would like to organise a series of trips to help the work that they do. We hope to remove invasive species of plant from the Jersey Coastline, remove plants from overgrown areas and re-establish native plants. This would help in the management of some of the protected conservation areas in Jersey. Some of the projects may be from a single week’s task to being involved in a specific task for several weeks. The specific tasks of the programme are varied but they would involve some degree of physical work. At the end of each day a real sense of accomplishment would be felt knowing that you had given something back to preserve the beauty of Jersey’s native Flora. This activity is available to all students, but some of the students who are thinking of studying Biology or Geography at A-level may find this particularly useful.

This is for students who may be interested in teaching. A high level of commitment is required as schools will rely on you being there, as staff at the primary school will plan their lessons around you being able to assist them, so it is essential you do not let them down.

Jersey Heritage This activity is for all Historians and anyone else who is interested in Jersey culture. We will be doing a wide range of History based activities at various sites around the island. We should be out most weeks on a visit so the activity will run for 2 hours. I am hoping to get some guest experts involved to help us to get the most out of the activities, such as the SociĂŠtĂŠ Jersiaise and the Jersey Museum. The activities will involve some practical Archaeology such as Geophysical surveying and field walking, at various sites around the island. We will also be doing some visits to Museums, and hopefully to the Archives for some family History research. We could also visit the National Trust sites such as the restored New Street Miss Hotton building. I will base All Years the activities around the interests of the 2.00 - 3.30pm students who attend so In the Dome this is a flexible plan of Max = 15 events.

Art - Out on Location In this session you will have an opportunity to spend the afternoon developing your skills. In some of the sessions you will be out and about around the island to gain inspiration from our unique built and natural environment. This is really for students who enjoy art but do not do it for A Level as the aim of enrichment is to do something outside your normal academic subjects.

Whole Year Enrichment The following programmes are a whole year commitment

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award This is a whole year commitment and will enable you to complete your bronze or silver award. Part of the time will be spent on expedition planning with a training expedition over a weekend in November and a trip away after the summer exams to the New Forest (costing up to £300). The expedition is only part of the award, the other elements such as volunteering, physical activity and skill will be completed out of school time. We may also want help with developing the bronze award for year 10 and some of the more experienced participants could help to organise a club for this, which could count as volunteering. Some weeks we will be in school doing things like cooking on camp stoves, putting up tents, route

planning, expedition safety and first aid while one week we will go out using maps and compasses on the sand dunes Some afternoons we will be starting at 1.30pm. and may finish after 3.30pm, while others will be during the normal school hours. This is a full year commitment as the organisation and training for the expedition takes time but the award itself is nationally respected and includes all elements of our Mrs Winspear school enrichment programme. This is Mrs Mansell only for those really All Years committed to gaining 2.00 - 3.30pm their silver or bronze Meet In A Dome award.

• Talented and keen string players in the school

who have achieved Grade 5 standard and more, and who belong to any school year, can join this programme for the first hour (the first half an hour is lunchtime and the second half an hour is form, which can be missed by arrangement).

• JCG has also opened this programme to

senior string players from any other school whose timetable will allow their participation.

What we do The programme will cover, relative to string playing, elements of: history and trends in music, styles from ancient to pop,

improvisation, listening analysis and oral training, string exercises, repertoire, chamber music, film music, studying the great players, musical knowledge, and humour in music. The Kings Chamber Orchestra and Professor Ben Holland The programme benefits from twice-termly visits of Professor Ben Holland of the Royal Northern College of Music, who on occasion will coach the group and it is anticipated that the members of the Friday enrichment will have the opportunity, in the Spring Term, to rehearse with and perform with the Kings Chamber Orchestra of London under Gerard Le Feuvre’s direction.

Orchestral woodwind and brass players

• All senior orchestral wind players and

pianists (but sadly not guitar) who would choose the enrichment programme if it were available beyond strings, should let Mrs Le Feuvre/Mrs Edelenbos know of their interest as a first step, as it may be possible to tailor this enrichment option to include you.

Highly Strung and Camerata are initiatives sponsored by the Extended Music Programme through the JCG Foundation. They are directed by our musician in residence, Gerard Le Feuvre, whose unique gift is making everything accessible and fun.
