Sixth Form Election
Congratulations to Chloe Hodson and Bethany Wilcock who have won the 2020/21 sixth form elections. After a strong campaign, the girls won the "five horse race" and will work with the rest of the Sixth Form Council throughout the academic year.
Well done Chloe and Beth and thank you to all the candidates who put their names forward to run.
Cards for Kindness
All Sixth Form students will be taking part in Cards for Kindness this year. This is where students send Christmas cards to care homes to help spread a bit of festive cheer and combat loneliness. It's always lovely to receive a card through the post and this often sparks conversation and encourages residents to talk to each other. Research shows this has many health benefits, especially for people living with dementia.
Parachute Jump for St Catherine's Hospice
Congratulations and thank you to our year 13 student Shay O'Neil who has raised around £3,000 for St Catherine's Hospice. Shay is in his second year at Hutton Sixth Form studying Law, Politics and Business Studies. Funding was organised by Shay who completed a parachute jump from Cockerham in late September. Well done on completing your jump and raising so much money for a very worthy cause.
