Last week saw Herne Bay Junior School host their first ever 'Enterprise Extravaganza'. All of the Maths work completed and some of the learning in other subjects was based around the idea of Enterprise. Each class in the school was given a £20 budget, which had to be returned at the end of the week.
On Wednesday the school took part in a Speed Stacking Competition held at Hampton Primary School. It was the first time our school had entered the event.
The next generation of entrepreneurs are being encouraged at Herne Bay Junior School! As a Governor I have been privileged this week to visit many of the classes to hear about the challenges of Enterprise Week. It has been inspiring to talk with the children; they are excited and enthusiastic about learning and have really embraced the qualities of team work and striving to reach a goal. It certainly appears to change some perceptions of maths . . . . . “usually we just do ordinary numbers in maths, this is proper maths for real life!” . . Quote from a Yr4 pupil.
The Staff have worked extremely hard to generate the ideas for this initiative and we would like to thank everyone for their hard work.
At the recent Governors’ Meeting we discussed the issue of attendance. Although, we respect that most families try really hard to ensure that their children are in school regularly and on time each day, and that the school itself works tirelessly to achieve that goal; unfortunately, there are still a few children whose attendance could be improved. There are so many opportunities offered by our school, the Governors urge you to ensure that your children can take full advantage by attending regularly.
‘One chance – let’s get it right! ‘
We have recently appointed a new governor and would like to welcome Mrs Kayleigh Horne to the Governing Body. Mrs Horne is a Herne Bay resident with experience in finance and we look forward to working with her.
