Careers Day Photos

Tuesday 12th November was Careers Day at South Somerset Partnership School and all our students took part in activities to explore the different careers and jobs they could do after leaving school.  Year 10 and 11 students also attended the Careers Fair at The Fleet Air Arm Museum and received advice from local employers and training providers. Here are some photos from the day…

Cup Boat Challenge

 

Students were asked to design a boat out of 3 cups, 15 straws & sellotape.  Coins were dropped into the boat and the winner was the person whose boat held the most coins without sinking.

Students say “No” to bullying by wearing Odd Socks

Students and staff showed their support for Anti-Bullying week by wearing odd socks to school last Friday 15th November.

This was part of the Anti-Bullying Alliance campaign ‘Change starts with us’ and promotes the idea that we are all unique and nobody should be subjected to bullying.

Here are some photos from the day…

Academic Mentoring afternoon – Tuesday 19th November

Odd Sock Day – Friday 15th November

This week is National Anti-Bullying week and the theme is ‘Change Starts With Us’.

“By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.” (Anti Bullying Alliance)

Students and Staff are showing support for this by wearing odd socks to school on Friday 15th November.  The idea is to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!
