St George’s Day Dragon Hunt – Sunday 13th April, 2.00 pm

Our St George’s Day celebration will take place a week early this year to avoid a clash with Easter.

It will take the form of a treasure hunt around the Village that has been designed for primary school children and their parents but everyone is welcome, both young and old. All teams must contain at least one adult who will be responsible for the safety and conduct of the whole team.

Registration will start at 2.00 p.m. and the hunt is expected to take about an hour. At each of the 20 stopping points on the route there will be a quiz question. Clues to the answer will be evident in the close vicinity. Each member of the team will have his/her own answer sheet but the one with the highest score will count for the whole team. The competition will close at 3.45 pm or earlier at the discretion of the organisers.

Refreshments will be provided at the end and 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded to the teams with the 3 highest scores and to all those children who complete the course. We look forward to meeting you all.

Geoff Cope: Dragon Hunt organiser.

King Ecgbert School School Seeks Former Students

Did you go to King Ecgbert School? If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, the school would love to hear from you! Right now, there are students in the assembly hall where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities that you did. Being connected to you could really help them.

The school is one of more than 500 state schools and colleges across Britain which have registered with the charity Future First to set up networks of former students or alumni. Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students.

More than 50,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers. It doesn’t matter when you left school, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help!

“More than 39 per cent of state school students don’t know anyone in a job they’d like to do,” said Alex Shapland-Howes, Managing Director of Future First. “If they see that someone who went to the same school, grew up in the same community, has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job, it helps them see it’s possible for them too. It’s really important for all students to be motivated to succeed in the working world and hearing first hand from relatable people in interesting jobs can make a huge difference.”.

Former students can sign up to the school’s Future First’s alumni scheme by visiting the websitewww.futurefirst.org.uk and clicking on the “Former students” link.
