Earlier this year, Mrs. Nation received a letter from our local MP (Roger Gale) that included details of the Teachers’ Institute annual course held at the Houses of Parliament. As I help to run the School Council, Mrs Nation suggested I apply.The course sounded fantastic but I wasn’t too hopeful of gaining a place as there were only 75 places available nationwide. To my delight, my application was successful and I’m off to London this week. It looks to be an amazing, action packed week beginning with a pre-course evening meal on the Sunday to meet the other delegates. I’ve included the timetable of activities so you can see what exciting events I will be attending throughout the week.

On Tuesday 30 June the children of Herne Bay Junior School had a very special assembly. The Amy Johnson Herne Bay Project arranged for Flight Lieutenant Stefan Wurwal to come to the town for the day and speak to the children. The long term goal for the project is to build on the legacy of Amy Johnson and help inspire the next generation of pilots and engineers, and to encourage young people to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams whatever they may be.
On Tuesday 23rd June the school took part in the East Kent School Games Final held at Three Hills Sports Park, Folkestone. The school had two teams (Golf and Handball) representing the East Kent Coastal team in a total of nine sporting events which is a fantastic achievement for the school.
