Every Monday starting 25 November, finishing 16 December
Who is it for?
Each club has 10 places (5 boys 5 girls) prioritised for year 8 pupils at Calder High.
The Hub, Grange Dene, HX7 5LF, Mytholmroyd -above the dentist, the entrance is on the carpark side. There will be a ‘Slow the Flow’ sign on the door.
The club will be run by Steve Summers who is a qualified teacher with full DBS clearance which can be emailed or shown to any parents on request.
To book a place a parent needs to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following information:
- full name & age of student
- parent/carer’s phone number/emergency contact
Plus short (one sentence is fine) answers to these simple questions (ask them!):
- What could be done to reduce global climate change?
- What can we do in our local area to prevent flood damage?
- How can technology help either or both of these issues?
This is not a test! There is not one right answer, we are just looking for people who can make suggestions and take an interest in these subjects.
If you would like to discuss your child’s attendance, please mention this in the email and Steve will call you.
