Newtown Campus welcomes survivor from the Holocaust Educational Trust

On Monday 3rd April, students from Newtown Campus will hear testimony from Holocaust survivor, Mala Tribich MBE, as part of a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET).

The testimony will be followed by a question and answer session to enable students to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth. The visit is part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s extensive all year round Outreach Programme, which is available to schools across the UK.

The talk will be held in the village hall and start at 1pm.  Parents, family and friends are more than welcome to come along.  If you would like to attend please let Lucy or Sheena know.

Parents Afternoon

On Tuesday 4th April the school will close at 1pm for parents to attend parent’s afternoon, to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to discuss progress.  This will be for both Primary and Secondary students.  The afternoon will start at 1pm and finish at 4pm.  Students will remain in school until parents have met the relevant teacher(s). If you wish your child to accompany you to the meeting, this will be no problem.   If you cannot attend, please make arrangements for collecting your child from school.   Following feedback from the last parent’s afternoon, appointments will be made by students but for a longer period of time.

Data on your child’s progress will be collected prior to the Parents Day and sent home via email.
