The first full week of the summer break saw Year 6 primary leavers enjoy an exciting Summer School introduction to Park House ahead of them joining us as full-time Year 7 students in September.
Summer School was aimed at helping them to gain confidence and friends, whilst experiencing fun, new activities and supporting their reading and maths.
Interim Vice Principal, Mrs Waddell said: “Park House staff and our amazing Young Sports Leaders with the guidance of School Sports Coordinator, Mr James Mandry, put on a hugely successful Summer School for our young people. The event was particularly useful as they had not had the usual opportunity to visit us for open evenings or induction days and I'd like to add my gratitude to the many messages of thanks received from parents and carers since.”
You can read a few of the messages below:
“Holly has had a fantastic week, enjoyed every minute of it and made some friends, for us it couldn't have gone any better...“
“I just wanted to write an email to say what a fantastic week you’ve put on at Park House this week.
Edward was so nervous about starting secondary school, buy has enjoyed this week so much. He is now looking forward to September.”
“My son was looking forward to joining his big sister at Park House in September but he had the usual worries about getting lost and not knowing many people. He has attended every day this week and each day he came home saying it was 'super fun' and how many friends he made. He really enjoyed all the activities and experiences as well as being able to familiarise himself with the site and feel a bit more at home there. All the feedback from other parents we know whose children were also there has been really positive so I hope they have also told you and your team how much of a success it has been for our children.”
“Myself and my husband would just like to pass on our thanks to yourself and your amazing team for putting on such a great week of activities for the children. Rueben is now feeling much more excited about starting at Park House in September.”
“Thank you and your amazing team for a brilliant week. Scarlett has thoroughly enjoyed herself and is excited for September. It’s just what she needed to feel part of the Park House family. She’s so ready to start now.”
