Students will depart Halcyon at 1300 and should be returning to Halcyon by 1630 where they will be dismissed from school.

Thursday 03 December, Maths Inspiration Lectures
Venue: Palace Theatre, Shaftsbury Avenue

The Grade 10 students will be attending an event hosted by Helen Pilcher a scientist / journalist / comedian from Lithuania. There will be three lectures. Matt Parker, a stand up mathematician, will develop the idea of dimension in order to talk about four dimensional shapes and their three dimensional shadows. Jennifer Rogers, research fellow statistician at the University of Oxford, will discuss statistical significance and how much evidence is needed to make a result significant. Rob Eastaway, an independent lecturer and author, will explore the uses of estimation in making decisions. You can find out more information on the website here.
We will be travelling to this event via public transport so students need to bring a topped up Oyster card. The students will be given a chance to get some lunch after seeing the lectures so should bring some money or a packed lunch. After lunch students will come back to school so they can attend lessons for Periods 6 and 7.

Halcyon Winter Dance
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.
