This Week at Carlton Bolling……
We have another very busy week for everyone at CBC. Year 11 in particular are feeling ‘the burn’ as their exams approach, with teachers pulling out all the stops for them and providing lots of opportunities to help them succeed (such as Stretch classes for example).
However, there are also plenty of enrichment activities happening too. AS English Language are visiting Sheffield Hallam on Monday 9th March with Mr O’Driscoll and Mr Khan, a six week student leadership programme called ‘BD3 Connecting Schools Leadership Programme’ started on Monday, and Y7 are getting to see a Road Safety Drama today (very important as there are plenty of busy roads and built up areas around school). Y7 are also getting their SSL reward trip tomorrow so well done to all the lucky people who have earned a place on that!
Two big events are taking place this week too. Firstly, the Final of the Lady Mayoress’ Festival of Talent will take place on Thursday 12th March 7.00pm at the Henry Mitchell Hall, Bradford College, Great Horton Road (the Victorian building just one up from the new Hockney Building). Eesa Amin will be representing Carlton Bolling with his hilarious stand up show and it would be great for him to have lots of support on the night! Tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for students and are available from Miss Merifield. Secondly, we are gearing up for Red Nose Day on Friday and the year 7 choir (with Barkerend Choir) will be performing together for the rest of year 7. Students and staff will be wearing something red in addition to their usual uniform and paying £1 for the privilege.
Also, don’t forget, that reading regularly is the pathway to success! If families have time to listen to people read then it helps to develop skills that are proven to support high achievement.
