My daughter is thoroughly enjoying her languages and I’m sure that your skilled and enthusiastic teaching has contributed hugely to her successes.
My daughter enjoys languages which is wonderful to see. That you have noticed her hard work too is brilliant.
Please pass on our thanks to Mr Valentine as my son does not find French easy but is really enjoying Mr Valentine's lessons. Mr Valentine is most encouraging and much of my son's progress is down to him.
My daughter always talks about how much she really enjoys French and Spanish. Clearly this is the result of what a great teacher she has, whom she rates very highly.
Thurston Community College Parents
31 March 2017
March has been a busy month for our College community.
National Careers Week provided an opportunity for our students to prepare themselves for life after Thurston Community College! Our Careers Team worked tirelessly to enlist the support of representatives from local and national employers and the public service teams, who provided invaluable advice and information to our students. One day was dedicated to Further Education providers. A great many organisations attended and there was an open Information Event to which parents and carers were invited. Throughout the week I was delighted to see so many students taking full advantage of the wealth of opportunities that our Careers Team provided for them.
British Science Week also took place in March. For the entire week, every lunch time witnessed a different activity to demonstrate the fun of Science. In addition, 100 students attended the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham and we hosted Year 6 children from our Thurston Partnership Primary Schools for a STEM Festival!
I hope you all have a great break over the Easter period. For our Year 11 and Year 13 students and supporters, I hope you have your revision plans ready and are able to spend your time productively in preparation for your forthcoming examinations.
Thank you for your continued support.
