INFORMATION EVENING - Blackland Summer Camp

Blackland Summer Camp: Monday 22 May – Friday 26 May 2017

INFORMATION EVENING

There will be a meeting for all Year 9 students going to Blacklands Camp and their parents on Monday 24 April from 6.00pm – 6.30pm in the Chapel.

TrekCo Director Steve Ranger will give you a flavour of what Summer Camp is all about. We will also explain the expectations of student behaviour and the conduct that is required for the Camp to be an enjoyable and positive experience for all participants. You will then have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.

During the evening you will be given a letter with the final details as well as a suggested kit list.

Provided that we start promptly at 6.00pm, I anticipate the meeting finishing by about 6.30pm. I strongly recommend that you attend the information evening and look forward to meeting you.

If you cannot attend the meeting for any reason, please make sure your child collects a copy of the information sheets distributed on the evening from Reception the following day.

Classic Work!

latin2017Priory pupils competed in a Latin competition at Roedean School on Tuesday 7th March. Over 120 pupils from 8 schools took part. Our pupils were competing against Roedean, Hurstpierpoint college, LOGS, Gildredge House, Lancing College, Ardingly College, and Brighton College.  Natalie Goldman, Susie Withers, and Hannah Limbrick blew the other schools out of the water with their dramatic rendition of 'Rufilla' winning the intermediate Latin category. A very dramatic performance of 'fabula mirablis' from Lucy Zara, Dandy Freeman, and Becky Clark went down a treat and they got a commendable achievement for this. James De St Croix and Tom Japes did an excellent rendition of 'Aristo' then went a bit off script descending into a beat box and rap at the end of their Latin, but entertained the entire auditorium to a great extent!

 

 

ESCC Recruitment of Foster Carers Campaign

East Sussex County Council are recruiting foster carers. It is  important that children remain in their local area and are able to maintain their school, their friends and things that are familiar to them. Could you offer respite, short term or permanent placements or short breaks for children with disabilities? Could you provide supported lodgings for older children of 16+?

You can download the flyer here. For more information please call 01323 464129, email fostering@eastsussex.gov.uk or text FOSTER to 80806
