The final days of term saw students take on new and unusual challenges as they prepare to move up through Rossett School.
A Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) day saw Year 7 focus on personal safety and first aid, while Year 8 students had the chance to experience working life through simulations and workshops.
In Year 9, sexual awareness education was the topic of the day, while Year 10 students learned about personal safety, including safe behaviour behind the wheel. Meanwhile, young students joining Rossett in Year 7 from September, and those planning to join the sixth form, were able to enjoy a taster day in their new year group before the summer holidays began.
Headteacher Helen Woodcock said:
With exams and coursework out of the way, the final days of term were an ideal opportunity to help our students develop in other ways.
At Rossett School, we are keenly aware of the need to prepare students for the growing demands they will face as they go through the education system and out into the world. From training students to be responsible young drivers to preparing them for their future careers, the PHSEE day was a great way to engage students with some of the challenges that lie ahead.
Our future sixth formers showed great maturity during their taster day, and have gone away with preparation materials to help them get used to a new, more independent way of studying from September. I was also very impressed with the learning attitudes of the Year 6 students who visited us; I feel confident they will be a real asset to the school when they join us full-time.
The Family Learning Day run on Saturday 16 July attracted generations from the same families as 260 people came to Rossett to learn together. The skills of iPad research, trampolining, poetry writing and algebra were explored by grandparents, mums and dads, students and toddlers.
Everyone at Rossett is looking forward to welcoming our students back after the holidays.
