Weekly Update 17/09/2021

Weekly Update from our S6 Head Team

It has been another busy week for everyone. On Wednesday we were finally able to meet our buddies after delays due to COVID restrictions! We met on the sports pitches at break time. It was nice to put names to faces and learn more about our buddies. We hope to meet up with them again soon.

On Thursday the whole of S6 met up for ‘team building’ activities as a way of bringing the year closer together and marking the start of the year. It was nice to do something as a whole group as we missed out on the residential in June. We had a quiz where each team had to guess which teacher matched a silly/embarrassing story. Great fun was had by everyone!

This week we also spoke to Ms Poole (CDT teacher) and asked her how she has settled in at KHS. She said, ‘It’s amazing! Everyone has been so welcoming and the students are really friendly.’ She is enjoying getting to know everyone.

Have a good weekend,
Head Team

Parent Council Update

Parent Space

Cheviot Youth have teamed up with Parent Space (https://www.parentspace.org.uk/) to run a special programme aimed at all parents and carers which focuses on the teenage years. Running over 8 weeks in the evening from 6.30pm – 8.30pm, the first session will be on Tuesday 28th September.  Far for lectures on ‘how to be a parent’, the programme is instead aimed at providing hints, tips and advice in a safe and supportive environment.  Sessions will be relaxed but informative with lots of discussion and mental health and youth work professionals on hand to answer questions, bust myths and provide deeper insight.

Please find further information on the programme below.
