PTG: Mixing and mingling at the Coffee Mornings

It was great to see a mix of both Primary School and High School parents at the two coffee mornings (Sports and Sustainability) we held in the past weeks. If you missed them, read on for a quick summary and a link to the slides of the Sports programme at STA. Don’t forget the third coffee morning (Careers and Higher Education) coming up on 26 November.

The Coffee Mornings are an opportunity to come and learn about a designated school topic and to get to know/chat to other parents. One of the challenges of having two campuses is building and maintaining a community of parents across both campuses – the coffee mornings are one way of doing this!

Little Steps to Zero Waste launch party

Both Primary and High School parents (see photo) attended the coffee morning on Sustainability - aka launch of the Little Steps to Zero Waste shop on 8 Nov. This coffee morning was a collaborative event hosted by The Ecobeasts (led by Mr Ewen and Ms Susan), Max and the Steps team, and the PTG.

It was a fantastic interactive session, with the EcoBeasts running a Kahoot game that 32 participants signed up to play. Congratulations to the 3 winners of the Steps-sponsored eco-prizes: Green Jedi, Michelle & Sharon, and Wiltrud. It was also great to see students from the High School Sustainability Group coming to Primary School to support the event. 

Constantly hearing the term “Sustainability” can be daunting and make us feel powerless, and one of the things we hoped to show by holding this launch party was that doing your bit for the environment can become part of a lifestyle rather than a chore. Thank you to everyone who took part - and please go and check out the new shop! 

Sports and ECAs

The previous week, on 1 Nov, we held our first November Coffee Morning. The topic was Sports and ECAs, and Mr Adam, head of HS Sports, and Mr Damon, head of PS PE and Sport, explained how the programme was set up and carried out at STA. Their goal is to run an inclusive sports programme that meets the needs of every individual member of the community. This programme is designed to maximise the opportunity for all students to play at a level that meets their needs. It will undergo a continuous review process by parents, players, and coaches, to ensure the needs of all individuals are being met. The programme is based around a programme of training, fixtures, and ECAs. Mr Adam and Mr Damon presented figures showing that 85% of students at STA are involved in sports of some sort: that’s 1739 children (out of 2041). Mr Adam and Mr Damon also answered parent questions. Please click here for their presentation. They also stressed that if you have further questions, please just ask!
