Year 12 dancers performed at N:Dance on Saturday 25th February. This is an auditioned entry into the county showcase for youth dance across Northants. The dancers a piece called Rihla which explores issues associated with being a refugee. They danced so well on the day and really improved against tough competition. Well done to all.
This week in assembly Cindy Odell, from Northampton University, presented to year 12 students on careers in health. She took the opportunity to explain the different routes into a career in the field of health, and spoke about the application process, focusing on both the soft skills needed as well as the academic qualifications. Cindy has offered to give any students interested in a career in health a chance to visit the University of Northampton and speak to current students to gain a further understanding of what their courses involve.
Students from year 12 had a visit from the company 2fast2soon, who delivered a lesson on driving safety and avoiding the pressures of drink-driving and driving while texting. Young people are disproportionately more likely to be involved or killed in car accidents, and many may not be aware of the ramifications of dangerous driving. Many students are now starting to learn to drive, so the timing of the talk is particularly appropriate.
