Weekly News Bulletin: 29 June 2015

Year 10 Spanish
Classes SP10B2 and SP10C1, both taught by Mrs Graves, will be doing controlled conditions coursework as soon as the exams are over.  This will lead to a piece of GCSE writing (the real thing!) on Monday 13th July and Tuesday 14th July 2015.  Students will be preparing for this at home.   Please encourage them as it is important!
Thank you.

District Athletics Championships
The Bishop’s Stortford & District Schools’ Athletics Championship will be held on Tuesday 30th June at Wodson Park, Ware.   Letters are being given to students who have been selected to compete at this event this week and permission slips must be returned by Monday 29th June at the latest.  Team sheets have been placed on the PE noticeboards and students need to tick off their names.

The event is for the whole day and students are required to meet at school at 8.45am, leaving school promptly at 9.00am.  Students need to register with their form tutors first, and then meet at the front of school.  Transport is provided both to and from the venue.  Students need to bring drink, food and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, as there will be times when they are not performing.  Students need to come in their school PE kit and trainers, and will not be able to attend if they are not in school PE kit.
Thank you.

New Biometric Trust e-Cashless System
This is a final reminder if your child has not yet returned their consent form to have their thumb print taken for the new biometric system they need to do so immediately as without this consent form the biometric information for your child cannot be processed so they will not be able to purchase any food or drinks.

Please be assured that this information remains within the school and that the biometric information taken is an algorithm and not the actual finger print.

The preference of the school is to use biometrics as this is more secure and faster than any other method of paying for their food and drink at school.  We appreciate your co-operation with regards to this matter.
