On Thursday 11th January, Easthampstead Park Community School’s class of 2017 attended their GCSE presentation evening. Students received their GCSE certificates, whilst musical accompaniments were provided by Cameron Bennett and Dan Rose. A palpable air of excitement fell upon the audience as the subject awards were announced, alongside special awards for friendship, academic achievement, leadership, contribution to the school community and endeavour. The audience were treated to an address from Fujitsu, a review of the year by Callum Wheeler Droney and Racheal Makumbi, and a speech about the importance of education from Muk Suecharoen. Well done to the class of 2017 – you should be very proud of your achievements – and to all contributors who made the GCSE presentation evening a very special occasion.
Special thanks also go to Ben Ford in Year 11 for his terrific work photographing the evening.
Last year we raised £172 using the Bag 2 School fundraising scheme. This year, we want to beat that and raise at least £200 – but we need your help!
You can donate any of the following items. Simply bag them up (bags are available from our reception, but bin bags will do) and drop them off at school. The school council will then collate all donations for the collection on Friday February 9th – the last day of this half term!
- We need clothes you no longer want or fit into!
- Paired shoes (tie the laces please!)
- Soft toys
We really appreciate your help! The organisation will pay 0.40p per kg and your donations will be reused to benefit the circular economy.
Today, Jasleen in Year 9 attended the South of England final of the Science and Technology Challenge event at Queen Mary, University of London.
Our Christmas Jumper day on Friday 15th December raised a whopping total of £612, which is being donated to the charity SHELTER, which provides support for the homeless. A huge well done to all teachers and students!
On Wednesday 13th December, students at EPCS enjoyed a fantastic Christmas lunch. Students enjoyed roast turkey with all the trimmings, followed by a choice of either Christmas pudding or profiteroles. Many thanks to our caterers, Wilson Jones and our wonderful kitchen staff for preparing such a great feast!
