I believe that students
who are involved in sport or the performing arts, or both, learn skills that
will benefit them for the rest of their lives. They learn to manage their time
better as they balance their studies and participation. They learn to work
collaboratively with others without necessarily being their friend. They learn
the basis of professionalism as they deal with the expectations that come with
being an artist or a sportsman or woman. It is with great satisfaction
therefore that I read in this week's issue the range of performing arts’
activities that our young people are engaged in. Add to that the weekly reports
from the PE department it gives a real flavour of the richness that is on offer
In addition, we support and encourage our students in their activities outside of College. Jorden Gleave is principal dancer in the West Cliff Theatre youth group production of Grease on the 12 to the 14 February; tickets are available from the West Cliff Theatre.
If your child is not involved in any after school or out of college club, then encourage them to join something. If they are not sure what to join have a chat with the Learning Team and we will try to point them in the right direction.
