We will be busy finishing and collating accreditation for the students who are leaving this year to celebrate all their wonderful work that has been completed and achievements that have been made. Student work books and portfolios are looking so beautiful. We are all so proud of the students work.
Staff from 16SC will continue to write in student diaries each day so you know what students have been leaning and what they have achieved each day. We will also try very hard to send home photos each week in student photo books so you can help the students celebrate their achievements.
Our class blog will be updated soon with all of our all our class news from last half term.
The 16SC Team
Students from 16SC that attend the QE2 centre made a fabulous Christmas tree! We used saws, hammers and a drill to construct our Christmas tree from recycled pallets.
This week all of the new chairs for Osborne College have arrived, all of the new classrooms have been painted and we hope we will be able to take all of the students over to visit very soon.
We have had an exciting and busy first week back. We completed our first ‘Golden Mile’ walk around the beautiful school grounds in the sunshine it was very relaxing and the students really enjoyed it. We also completed our first session running the school café, the session went very well. Students helped to prepare snacks, set up items to be sold used the dish washer, and completed individual tasks to clean the café.
