Inspiration Day - Digital Safety

On Wednesday, 6th October, the whole school took part in an Inspiration Day that focused on how to keep themselves digitally safe. Throughout the day, pupils were encouraged to think about their media choices and habits, including how they achieve a healthy balance of online and offline activity. They looked at their digital footprints, considering how their online actions impact themselves and others. Pupils also looked at how digital dramas can be de-escalated and at how they communicate with others online. We looked at roles in cyberbullying and how pupils can be responsible digital citizens. The work produced from each year group is now on display.

 Spring Term 2020
Ambassador for Peace and Education visits school

On Wednesday 29th January, KS3 has the pleasure of observing a powerful speech and taking part in a question and answer session with Ahmad Nawaz. He campaigns globally for peace and education for young people and has spoken about these issues at the UN World Merit360 summit, the House of Lords and over one hundred schools and colleges, including Eton College as well as Cambridge and Oxford Universities.  

Ahmad is now running a campaign globally for youth empowerment and is the first-ever young person to be invited by the President of Portugal to speak at the Global Estoril Conference in May 2019, where he met with other heads of the state and some Nobel Laureates to discuss youth role in the society. 
 
We are grateful to Ahmad and his father for taking the time to visit us and speak so candidly and powerfully to our pupils at Parkside. Listening to such a young motivational speaker had an enormous impact with KS3 during an inspirational week 'The difference that we want to make starts with us.'

Physiotherapist visits School
Year 8 had the privilege of a visit from guest speaker Richard Drewitt; a physiotherapist. He informed pupils of the different career avenues within the sports and medicine industry and the relevant qualifications and educational routes needed to achieve this. He educated them on the most frequently occurring sports injuries for their age and the corresponding treatments and rehabilitation required. 

The pupils also learnt on how to administer certain treatments and were given the opportunity to handle different types of medical equipment. This experience broadened their knowledge and understanding and gave them a great insight into a ‘day in the life’ of a physiotherapist.
