Moving on up for Year 7

Westholme’s Year 7 girls experience a day in Year 8

On 13th June  Westholme’s Year 7 girls had a fantastic ”˜Move to Year 8 Day’.   The girls spent the morning taking part in team-building activities which tested their ability to follow instructions, emphasizing the importance of effective communication. The girls had a wonderful time despite the torrential rain!    The girls spent the afternoon in lecture theatre – looking at presentation, organisational skills and how using technology to communicate with one another outside of school can lead to a message being interpreted wrongly.

The day was rounded off with an end of year treat – a Pamper Party.   This had been organised by the Year 12 Business Studies students.   The Sixth form common room was transformed into a pink paradise and the girls had a chance to have a photo-shoot and get their nails painted and their hair styled.   The girls enjoyed a delicious party tea and the whole evening was a huge success!
