TY week 8


5th November - TY Admin

Getting credit

Make sure you fill in the Blue record book for any activity you have been involved in outside of your normal timetable or out of school.


If you are doing an exciting activity in class please come and get the TY phone and take some photos for our facebook page.

Trade Fair

As part of your Business course many of you will be putting a stall in the school trade fair. Please be organised for this and don’t leave everything to the last minute. Those students not doing business are still welcome to take a stall.

Full cooperation

There is to be no slacking off in any subjects. It is important that you work hard in class and meet all deadlines. There will be a first report on your progress filled in by all teachers by the end of November Some teachers may give you an exam before hand or use a project or piece of work as your assessment. Please check with your teacher how you will be graded. Assessment week is 5th- 15th of November.

Work Experience

There are still a number of work experience forms outstanding. I think it’s about time you got this sorted. Please let me know if you are attending Seagate work experience in November or any other one off experiences as Fran needs this for attendance records.

Out of class

Please have a TY permission slip or lanyard if you are out of class for any reason
