Hay Festival 2020

We are very lucky to be offered access to the ‘Free to View Hay Festival programme for schools’ which runs for the whole of this coming week – 2 films a day with extension activities: Hay Festival Programme for School Children studying at Home

And if children and parents want to join the Free to View Hay Festival Digital over half-term there is a whole programme from 22nd May – 31st May right here: Hay Festival Digital

As you know, we normally take KS3 students to Hay Festival and it is a wonderful experience on many levels; please support the Festival this year as much as you can.

Arete Outdoor Activity Centre

As we are still staying safe and staying at home, what better way to embrace our time than to carry out some activities with our family in the great outdoors? The outdoor centre, Arete, that many of us have been lucky enough to visit and spend time in, have sent through some absolutely FANTASTIC activity ideas for us to have a go at. They are detailed and informative and VERY exciting.  It would be great if as many of you as possible could have a look at the activities and even better than that have a go at as many of them as you can.  If you do could you please take some photos of yourselves getting involved or the results of you undertaking the activities and then email them to me (sbebbington@gvsc.org.uk). I will then send some to the centre, as they are really keen to see how you all get on and what you can do, as well as putting some on to our school website
