Discover US – Autumn Term 2016
Students from Hasland Hall joined other Year 9 students from across North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire at the launch day of a three-year programme to help them “Discover US”, run by the University of Sheffield.
The programme is aimed at young people who have the potential to go to university but may not yet see it as a priority. A launch evening was held in November for students and their parents followed by a December “orientation” day to help students find their way around the University site and start exploring the possibilities of Higher Education.
Grouped with students from other schools, North Derbyshire’s representatives quickly made new friends. Activities included a tour and research tasks leading to giving a lecture, quizzes and prizes.
“A great start!” was the verdict of the Hasland Hall students, who will have the chance to maintain links via the cohort Facebook page and re-new friendships at future events in April and into Years 10 and 11 – including an overnight stay next year in student accommodation.
A new Community Choir, meeting every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at the school, is soon to be launched. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
The first gathering will take place on Tuesday 28 November in the Music block. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the school on 01246 273985 or by email: email@example.com.
The Carol Concert will take place on Monday 18 December at Hasland Methodist Church, commencing at 7.00pm. Tickets are available from the school.
