Visitor from 'The Day' newspaper

Today, we will have someone coming in from The Day newspaper. They want to see how we use The Day in class, from using translated articles in our languages lesson to writing our opinions on articles for part of Project Gallagher. Please let Ms. Dutton know your favourite lessons involving the Day.

Talking of The Day - here are some articles to support this week's motion for Debate Club, "This house would make food technology compulsory in both primary and secondary schools." Here are some fantastic articles to give students some inspiration...or food for thought!"

Message from Gin Club!

Hello, this is the GIN Club here to present the Habitat Project. You may have noticed the 10 photos of various habitats on the hub door (at the bottom). The GIN Club is trying to raise funds for one of these habitats, but it's up to you to decide which one. We have sent out a Google Form with the options, be sure to fill it out this morning.

iPad updates

To all students:

Please remember to complete your iPad Operating System updates at home this weekend! Some of you may need to clear off data like videos and images in order to complete the update. If needed, please ask Mrs. Crannell for any help.

Thank you.

Remember one of our School Rules? No Gum!

Please remember that you are not allowed to chew gum at Halcyon.
