Christmas Carol Service

Wye School held our traditional Christmas Carol Service today in our local parish church, St Gregory and St Martin Church. Rev Holy welcomed us and delivered an interesting sermon on the history of Christmas in England, we learn't some things about how they used to celebrate in past times that included dead mice and the over-eating of sprouts.

Year 7, 8 and 9 students attended, and just about fitted into this historic building, and the Year 7 Choir and Poetry groups contributed to the service.It was a lovely way to end the Christmas term.

Sunflowers yield training gold

Wye School recently won £500 in free training after entering a competition to grow Sunflowers with Ted’s Big Sunflower Competition. (https://www.kmcharityteam.co.uk/schools/sunflower/)

Run by the KM Charity Team, the competition invited schools from across the south-east to nurture sunflower seeds donated by The Education People, with the latter giving away a £500 training package to the cultivators of the best blooms.

The Education People provides services across the primary, secondary and further education sectors.

The organisation’s CEO, James Roberts, visited Wye School to present it with its prize and meet the green-fingered Nature Club pupils responsible for growing the beanstalk-like flowers.

He was joined by KM Charity Team acting general manager Karen Brinkman, who said: “Congratulations to Wye School for their success in this lovely competition and many thanks to The Education People for generously donating this fantastic prize.

“It’s a pleasure to be involved in any initiative that nurture’s children’s creativity and connects them to nature, and this was a brilliant way of achieving both those goals.”

Mr Magee said “One of my favourite things to do at Wye School is visit our allotment with the Nature Club and see its produce and wildlife. It is in a beautiful setting and really lets our students experience the pleasure of working with plants and nature. I am pleased that their efforts have been recognised with this prize.”
