Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
Hania Obaid (Y11) has become the first student at Caistor Grammar School to achieve the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Certificate of Achievement for completing her Bronze Level Skill, Physical and Volunteering sections. The certificate has been introduced by DofE to officially recognise students amazing motivation and commitment to the awarding during this pandemic. More information about the certificate can be found at https://www.dofe.org/thelatest/certificate-of-achievement/
Y7 Flu vaccination
A final reminder that parents who wish their child to sign up for the free flu vaccination in School must do so by Thursday 8 October. Just over three quarters of Year 7 students have signed up. A letter giving further details accompanies this newsletter.
Buses, masks, etc.
Duty staff continue to remind students to sit in the correct places on School buses and to wear masks on the journey. Please can you reinforce this at home. We are also still handing out sandwich bags at the top and bottom gates every day to students who have forgotten to bring something in which to store their masks.
Black History Month
October is Black History Month. And to acknowledge the event, I am sending to all students on every ‘school day’ this month a link from the Black History Month website.
We’re welcoming approximately 280 prospective students and one member of their family into School this Saturday across two sessions for the entrance test. Assistant Heads Mr Sunter, supported by Mr Croft, have done an exceptional job to make the site safe for this number of visitors. It is always an uncertain day, I feel, so I just want to wish every Year 6 student taking the test across the next two Saturdays all the best.
Have a good weekend,
