At the end of this term it is with great sadness that we will be saying goodbye to several colleagues who have worked hard during their time at Saint John Houghton and contributed a great deal to the school.
Goodbye to Mrs Forrest, Mrs Jinks, Dr Landy, Mr Rutter, Mrs Mowat, Mrs Brambell, Mr Haley, Miss Bennett, Miss Feleke and Miss Hughes.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavours!
Mrs Hartharn, Mr Poland and Mr Carr accompanied 37 Year 11 Geographers went to Ilkeston for the day to conduct a residential land-use survey for their Controlled Conditions Coursework – which is worth 25% of the final GCSE grade. Students worked very hard to record all their data and environmental and amenity surveys.
The team captains had their first ride on the spin bikes we are using kindly sponsored by DE7 Fitness. Tactics are starting to be formulated and teams organised for the challenge on the 9 and 10 July.
Team captains will be calling team meetings over the next week to give the riders their time slots etc. There is starting to be real competition between the team captains and students alike.
During the next few week the cycle teams will be bringing sponsorship forms home so please support us to raise as much money as possible. Just a reminder:- These teams will be riding the 1280 miles over the 2 day school mission on the 9 and 10 July for charity. The groups target is to raise £1 for every mile cycled.
I would like to thank DE7 Fitness for their continued support for this event.
