Welcome Year 8 Parents
Welcomed by Mr O’Dowd, Head of Year 8, the Coffee Afternoon was an opportunity for parents to meet, in a relaxed setting, their son’s or daughter’s Form Tutor and to also have a walk around the school. More than fifty parents attended the afternoon. Mr O’Dowd gave a brief presentation on Year 8 life, including the Enrichment programme, informed parents on key dates for Year 8 and also gave a short introduction to the forthcoming Year 8 camp in Ras al Khaimah. The Year 8 students then had an opportunity to show their parents around the school. The afternoon proved a very valuable experience as it also allowed parents, especially those new to the St Chris family, who had questions to meet with key staff and to find out more information about life in Year 8.
