Welcome to Corpus Christi
Introducing Our New App
In the coming days and before college closes for the half term break, parents and carers be receiving a letter about the new Safer Schools App.
The App is designed to support and protect children by educating and empowering them both at college and at home. The letter home will include a 4 digit access code that will tailor the content of the App for parent / carer use.
Students will receive a separate code to provide access to information that is relevant to them along with tips and advice on how to keep them safer online. Best of all the App is completely free to use.
PSHCE Ambassadors Lead Health Fair Event
Our Year 10 PSHCE Ambassadors helped manage and organise another successful Health Fair. This popular annual event involves our Year 9 students engaging in a wide range of health related matters through watching presentations from guest speakers to participating in workshops. Mrs Thompson, PSHCE Co-ordinator was extremely proud of our ambassadors and in particular the impact that they had on visitors to the event.
‘The Yr 10 PSHE ambassadors were a massive help and a credit to the college. They were polite, friendly and I can see why they were picked for this role”. Craig McKenna Volunteer Manager
‘Congratulations on such a great day, so professionally run and organised. Your Year 10 helpers were brilliant”. J.Parry (Zumba Teacher)
The feedback from students as equally positive, with comments including:
“I now understand what domestic abuse means in a relationship”
‘I really enjoyed the Zumba session as it was fun and really raised my heart rate and made exercising enjoyable!’
In response to the event a number of Year 9 Students have volunteered for ‘Health Watch’ at the Fire Station and an RSE team can respond to the issues raised by students by addressing their needs in the curriculum. We are already looking forward to next years event.
