Year 7 and 8 students are both currently studying medieval Baghdad as part of their Connected World topic. Nefeli (Year 8) has been completing the lesson work and was inspired to make this model in addition, reflecting her knowledge of the remarkable circular design of the city.

Isla was lucky enough to go this week to the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, presented by a former Presdales student and mathematician, Dr Hannah Fry. Isla really enjoyed it, learning a lot about maths and how TV programmes are made. She was even chosen to go up to the front and take part in an experiment, so you should be able to spot her on TV when the programme is aired! Isla also managed to grab a quick photo at the end with Hannah who was thrilled to hear that Isla is a Presdales girl too – they had a chat about maths teachers!
After 7 years of training Zoe Van Maanenberg (Year 10) successfully achieved her 1st Dan (Black Belt) Karate yesterday. She has shown amazing resilience to obtain this and achieve it this weekend as the next grading would have clashed with her GCSE’s so she was determined to get it before then! Huge congratulations Zoe, this is amazing!

Year 10s are starting to write their CVs using the destinations package Unifrog. We have also set up a parent login so that you can use Unifrog as if you were a student yourself, allowing you to truly support your child. The form code you need is: PresdalesParent and you can sign up here: www.unifrog.org/code
Year 10s will be participating in an interview skills workshop after Christmas which will culminate in the Big Interview Day during Careers Week on the 6th March 2020. They will be given a formal interview by parents and alumni volunteers to help them land their dream job in the future!! In the summer on the 1st July 2020, we are intending for every Year 10 to do a day of work shadowing. More information on this to follow.
Year 11 participated in A Level taster lessons in sixth form classrooms in Economics, Media, Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics, Government and Politics, Photography, English Lit, English Lang Lit and Sociology. The students who would prefer to progress with a college pathway were given a tour of the HRC campus in Broxbourne and Ware. The next step for Year 11s is to complete their A Level application by Friday 13th December. An electronic application form is on the website.
If, as a parent, you feel you could participate in any of the careers programmes then please fill out the Presdales parent work survey. I will be contacting parents and alumni during December to ask support with careers week activities. All information on the careers programme for each year group is on the website.
