Yesterday (Tuesday 20th), Year 7 students took part in a special PSHE day which explored the consequences of smoking. Students took part in team challenges to discover how smoking can impact a person’s general health and wellbeing. There was a treasure hunt for information, and all students worked in teams to produce a radio advert aimed at teenagers, which they performed in front of their peers. The students conducted themselves brilliantly throughout the day, and demonstrated creativity, responsibility and resilience.
Meanwhile, Year 11 students spent the day discovering more about the options available to them in the future through a series of talks held by representatives of various careers and higher education providers. They were also given advice on revision skills and how to write personal statements and CV’s.
Headteacher Richard Williman commented: “I would like to congratulate our Year 11 students for the way they approached yesterday's Careers Day. We received very positive feedback from our visitors who said that their conduct, focus and concentration was on a par with the very best schools they visit from around the country. Evidence of what I know, that we have fantastic students at Withernsea High School. Well done and thank you.”
