Courses & Club Updates

Don Bosco – Update

We are starting to receive the list of those students travelling across from Don Bosco this Easter.  We hope to have all the host families paired up before half term so will be sending out these details shortly.

Host Families Still Needed

Don Bosco are bringing 100 students across so we are still approximately 10 host families short at this stage.

  • We are therefore going to open the exchange up to any Year 7 students who already have a sibling involved in this year’s exchange.
  • We will also offer places to any student from Year 7 who has played for one of the College’s sports teams this year.
  • Please contact Mr Lewin at Lewin_R@ucc.rutland.sch.uk if you would like to register as a host family.

Sports First Aid Course – Dates Rearranged

Unfortunately we have had to rearrange the First Aid Course due to start this weekend.  It will now run in Term 4 as an After School Club.  The course will run on the days below. 

  • Tuesday 3.30pm-4.45pm
  • Thursday 3.30pm-4.45pm
  • This is a 12 hour course so students must attend all sessions to complete the course.
  • Registration forms will be available from next week.

The Eyebrook Charity Walk - 13th March 2016 (10.00am to 12.00pm)

  • We are supporting the upcoming Eyebrook Walk (distance 4.6miles) and encouraging as many of our students as possible to take part.  This is of particular interest to any Duke of Edinburgh participants as it allows them to train for their expeditions by carrying a full backpack for the walk.
  • Mrs Thomas will be running a trip to this charity walk and will be coordinating fundraising (minimum £2 per person).  All students will need to register in advance and gain parental consent.  Families are welcome to walk with younger children.

Duke of Edinburgh – Expedition Update

  • All students must sign up for a Saturday training morning and chose a practice expedition date.
  • A Sign-up sheet is on the door of the DofE office next to the Community Lounge.  Alternatively please e-mail Mrs Thomas at Thomas_D@ucc.rutland.sch.uk
