A group of current students worked hard before the summer break, along with the Year 7 Director of Learning, to produce a brand new welcome booklet for new students.
The booklet, called 627 was given out to new students on their first day in school.
Miss Hughes, Director of Learning for Year 7 said:
“The students were eager to create something that was useful for the new students; as they could remember how scary it could be in those first few weeks of school. They wanted to ensure that all of the questions they had in their first weeks were answered, so that the new year 7 students wouldn’t have to worry about finding out the answers. They worked incredibly hard and have produced something that they should be very proud of. This document will be extremely helpful to year 7 students as they settle into life at St Benedict’s.”
Mr Smith, Headteacher at St Benedict’s:
“I am delighted that our students have been involved in such a helpful way to our new Year 7 students with the production of this booklet. Their helpful observations of their experiences as Year 7 students last year will certainly help this year’s students to get settled quickly into their life here at St Benedict’s.”
