They didn't have these when I was at school!!! Tim Peake Experience What a fantastic opportunity some of our Year 9 and 7 students had today. They visited the VR Bus throughout the day to experience the Space Descent and play with some hi-tech gadgets. Thank you to Mrs Millican for organising and thank you to the VR Bus staff who made the day run smoothly.

Some important information from www.nationalonlinesafety.com regarding an app that many teenagers use daily. Please find time to read as a parent and help inform your child of potential risks. Awareness helps protect young people.

Thanks

We have created a FREE guide for your school to share to its community about Snapchat, the social media app which has been flagged by the NSPCC & the Humberside Police as being one of the main sources of online grooming incidents over the pas...t 6 months in the region, with the youngest victim recorded just seven years old.

Our guide informs parents about the dangers associated with the social media platform and how they can reduce the associated risks, including sexting, snap map and snap streaks.

Debating this week.

Congratulations to Aimee Asbury-Luck, Alex Stott and Fred Varley who represented Graham School in a debate about lowering the voting age to 16. The event was held in the Council Chamber in the Town Hall. The Mayor of Scarborough and representatives from Borough Council were present. The students, who have been honing their debating skill all year in debating society, did an excellent job. Fred, had the whole chamber laughing, Alex blinded them with his facts and statistics and Aimee enjoyed grilling the councillors. I was very proud of them and look forward to taking more students out on similar events. Thank you to Miss Laxton for accompanying the students.

Everyone Aboard!!!!

A special thanks to all the staff and students who supported the Murder Mystery charity event last week. It was all hands on deck to transform the school library into a 1920’s cruise ship. The acting was superbly overboard; the audience laughed and gasped in all the right places. Everyone had a swell time and £65 was raised for Macmillan.

Thank you to everyone who participated.
