End of an unusual term

As we enter the Easter holidays, Wye School ends what has been a very unusual term. We have, like all schools, been partially closed by the national response to the Coronavirus. Staff have been setting work for students at home, and, providing childcare on site for those that need it. We have donated our Science goggles to local NHS services and been distributing vouchers and work packs to families. For the Easter break we are collaborating with two local primary schools to provide childcare each week day. 

Margaret Williams, Chair of Governors, and Luke Magee, Principal, both extend their warm thanks to all staff, students and parents/carers for the amazing team work that has seen Wye School cope so well with events to date. We do not know how long this will last but we do know we will get through it together.  

Whilst the humans on the school site have been experiencing these unusual times, nature has carried on regardless. Common Lizards have appeared on the school field, not something we see when it has 500 teenagers on it. Pheasants have colonised the playground. And a huge display of wild Primroses in the woods bordering the school site has leant a beautiful scent to the air. Spring has definately arrived.

Prince Edward DoE/CCF event.

His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex visited Dover Christ Church Academy today to see the work of the Duke of Edinburgh Award in Kent. Wye School was invited to attend along with Ashford School, with whom we run a joint Combined Cadet Force Unit and also work together on the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Mr Wickington, our DoE Co-ordinator, took Jamie Allen, Miles Furnell, Joshua Salmon and Jac Wood to the royal event and they worked with Ashford School students to demonstrate a navigation task. Prince Edward stopped with them for a significant amount of time, talking to staff and each student in turn. He asked Jamie about what he was doing for his DoE Bronze Award, the answer was archery which the Prince asked questions about. He then spoke in some depth to Jac about his leadership of the navigation task and his experiences of both the CCF and DoE. 

After talking to students the Prince unveiled a plaque and all the students there gave him a loud cheer, which seemed to at first surprise him and then make him very happy.

Mr Magee, who also attended the event, was very proud of how well all four Wye students attending represented the school, speaking confidently to a Prince and other distinguished guests from the government, police and local authority.
