Reading about the wonderful Hawaii trip in this weeks newsletter has prompted me to reflect upon the importance of the extra curricular activities on offer at TTC. When I look back at my school years it is always the trips and sporting opportunities that I remember most. At the time I don't think I appreciated that without the dedication of my teachers, these events would not have happened.
At TTC this week we have the following trips taking place:
Year 7 through the Brilliant Club are visiting the University of East Anglia. On Saturday a number of Year 8 students are taking part in a mock magistrates court in Chelmsford. Year 12 are making their way to the Normandy beaches on Thursday for three days on a History trip and on Wednesday we had Camps International attending the College giving details of a once in a lifetime opportunity for our KS5 students to volunteer over the summer holiday to work with a community project overseas.
All of these opportunities are in addition to the after College sporting, musical, artistic and academic provisions that take place, week in, week out.
I am really pleased that we offer so much at TTC, there is certainly no excuse for being bored.
Thank you to all parents/guardians that have contacted the College following my email regarding the Educ8 campaign. I will be replying personally to those who have requested further details to help them write a letter of support to our local MP.
I thought that I would share with you the thoughts of one parent that contacted the College ‘We will be supporting the campaign by writing a letter, our 3 children have had a wonderful experience at TTC and I would like to think my friends with younger children will have the ability to do the same!’
Thank you for your support.
