College Notices w/c: 17th December 2012

by Esther Silver.  

1. Parents Evening

The last evening for parents to discuss student progress takes place on Thursday 10th January.

Our online booking system remains open for parents to make appointments.

2. Current Affairs Club

This club is dedicated to discussing and debating events that have occured in the news recently including politics, law and society. The club is starting the beginning of the January term, but between now and then we would appreciate hearing back from potential members in regards to actual interest in the club and suggestions in what format it should take and what topics to discuss. For instance, the recent BBC-Jimmy Saville scandal or the failed deportation of Abu Qatada.

If you have any ideas, suggestions or interest at all, please enrol yourself in the Moodle course and get chatting.
