Halcyon Winter Dance, Thursday 10 December

Students in the advisory of "Hubbub", have organised a winter dance for our school and community friends. Please sign-up here! Their aim is to raise money for Mary's Meals. £12.20 can feed two children for a year and their goal is to feed 60 young people. Funds will come from the dance entry fees and your contributions to this site.

This is a festive season for children of many faiths. Food is such a big part of traditional celebrations! It is hard for us to realise that many children may be going without food during this happy holiday season. You can make a difference to these young people by making a donation...Plus the government will match you £ for £ up until December 28th for every £ raised. So please be generous and watch our fund raising efforts grow.

Bett Conference

The Bett Conference (great speakers are featured) is a FREE educational technology conference and it is happening again this year at the London Excel Centre on 20-23 January.

Halcyon students and teachers have an opportunity to speak on the Google stage about how Google Apps for Education has improved teaching and learning.

If you are interested in presenting please email Ms Crannell.

A planning meeting will take place next week on Wednesday 07 December in M02 from 1240-1320. At this meeting you will be asked to share what you would like to present so have your ideas ready. We can also help you with an idea.
