INEOS Team UK STEM Trip Last term Warblington School enjoyed some great STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) trips within the local area with many more planned for 2020. Two groups of Year 8 students had the amazing opportunity to visit the INEOS Sailing Team’s UK Headquarters in Portsmouth and take part in activities based around engineering, learning about the America’s cup and a workshop called Wings, Sails and Wind Tunnel Testing.

‘The trip to the INEOS Team UK HQ was really good as we learnt a lot while having lots of fun at the same time. We were given the chance to design and make a sail and then test it in the wind tunnel. We also found out what it is like to drive and control one of racing boats.’ Wrote one of our Year 8 students

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance The School also welcomed the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and took part in the “This Girl Can” Project aimed at secondary school students. This fantastic workshop meant 30+ students from all year groups getting involved and having to plan out their own rescue mission from receiving the call, planning the route of the helicopter and treating a patient at the scene of an accident. Thank you for a brilliant workshop and opening our eyes to the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance! Do you know what they do? Find out more on their website or social media pages https://www.hiowaa.org/

NEWS Our favourite practically perfect nanny took centre stage in our ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ adventure based on the Broadway musical and classic Walt Disney film on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December. 30 students across all year groups came together and worked tirelessly for weeks in rehearsals. Our students sang their hearts out to classics such as ‘it’s a jolly holiday’ and ‘a spoonful of sugar’, with remarkable dance routines over 2 sold out performances. Thank you to everyone who worked on and came to support the show!

Dame Kelly Holmes Unlocking Potential for Parks Sports Ambassadors Congratulations to Year 9 and 10 students, Josh, Ryleigh, Katherine and Peter on being selected to take part in the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust Unlocking Potential Program 2019-2020. Our young people will get the chance to work with and learn from Dame Kelly Holmes Trust’s team of inspirational athlete mentors. AQA Unlocking Potential aims to raise young people’s aspirations and expectations on future life goals, whether from school to Further Education, Further Education to Higher Education, or into training and employment. Only 80 students get through in the whole of the UK - what an amazing achievement, we are so proud of them!

Remembrance 2019 May we extend a huge thank you to those who donated their time and efforts into developing our Remembrance display this year. Our display was a real testament to how a community can all work together to create something poignant. Our Sports Ambassadors sold poppies at breaktimes, to commemorate the sacrifices of our Armed Forces and to show support to those still serving today. We were honoured to welcome Kirk Richardson and John Smith of The Buglers Association to our whole school Remembrance Assembly on Monday 11 November. They played ‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ before and after our two minutes of silence.

Park Community School much more than just a school

YES Enterprise at Park Community School At Park Community School we believe that the potential of our young people is unlimited and an academic education on its own is not enough. As part of our Much More Than Just a School approach, we are thrilled that Postcode Publications kindly sponsor our Young Explorers Squad (YES) Enterprise project. Our YES Enterprise students are selected to work with a team of our staff on various manufacturing projects, both at school and at the Apex Centre in Leigh Park, our Construction Skills Centre.

G ENTERPRISE SQ U A D UN YO

Being enterprising is something which can be applied to all aspects of life and work – identifying and initiating opportunities, as well as adapting one’s response to situations. This term, we have delivered practical activitybased programmes with our students creating a range of products for sale both within school and at external events. They have been busy with market research, product design, pricing and manufacture, developing their prototype products into real life saleable goods such as jewellery and Halloween decorations. A huge thank you to Postcode Publications for their support with our project in helping our students to succeed in the changing world of work by equipping them with the work skills, knowledge and confidence they need.

Saturday YES! trips continue for our Young Explorers Squad. Since April 2019 over 120 students have participated in 8 trips to exciting venues such as Upside Down House and British Airways i360 in Brighton, the London Eye, Air Arena in Chichester and Tower Bridge in London.

Staff volunteer and the funding for these trips has been generously provided by Postcode Publications giving our students additional opportunities and experiences, outside of the school day, that they otherwise may not have had. Students have learnt many ‘soft skills’ that are important to life, such as confidence when buying train tickets and eating in restaurants. YES! trips are vital because they encourage our students to think more broadly and learn more about our great country. Thank you Postcode Publications.

Local legal firm Belcher Frost has, for over 40 years, advised clients on a range of legal matters relating to their personal affairs and their businesses. for

WOULD YOU ACT AS EXECUTOR? If you are asked to be the Executor of someone's Will, you may feel flattered and honoured that you have been chosen for this special role. However, acting as Executor carries a great dear of responsibility. You must be aware of the potential complications that can arise and your duties and personal risk. Take the case of Mr Glynne Harris. He was appointed Executor of a £1.2M estate. He paid the initial Inheritance Tax ("IHT") from the estate leaving a balance of £340,000 owing to HMRC on the house. The sole beneficiary assured Mr Harris he would pay the balance so Mr Harris transferred the house into

the beneficiary's name. Unfortunately for Mr Harris, the beneficiary immediately went to Barbados without paying the IHT. HMRC claimed the £340,000 from Mr Harris. Whilst Mr Harris argued that he had passed the responsibility to the beneficiary he was unsuccessful. If, therefore, you are asked be an Executor, ensure you fully understand what you are taking on. Seek legal advice before acting as an Executor, particularly if the estate is taxable, complex or there are likely to be disagreements between the beneficiaries. For further information please call one of the Private Client team at Belcher Frost Solicitors Limited
