Thurston Partnership Update
6th November 2014
Transition for Y6 in 2015
While the Schools Organisation Review to a two-tier structure has been formally completed in our area, the work of the Thurston Partnership continues. Transition work for year 6 in 2015 has already begun. As we explained at our very well attended open evening last month, Thurston Community College has appointed two transition coordinators whose role will be to liaise between the primary schools and the College to ensure that year 6 pupils are fully prepared to transfer to the College next September. Graham Chubb and Kelly Allcock have each adopted 8 of the Thurston Partnership primary schools and they will become familiar faces over the next few months.
We have several events planned that will allow year 6 pupils to visit the College and become comfortable with the place and its students and teachers. One of these will be our Christmas Concert on 5th December. Year 6 pupils are invited for a Christmas lunch in the Thurston Community College dining room followed by an afternoon of singing and readings. We are really looking forward to it!
Art Exhibition: Remembrance
Children in each of our primary schools have been reflecting on the anniversary of the start of the First World War. Each school has created artworks on the theme of Remembrance and we have collected them all together in a fantastic exhibition in The Gallery at Thurston Community College. The diversity of designs around a single theme has created a very striking and moving display that has been widely admired. The exhibition runs until 5th December.
