Supporting Safer Internet Day

Posted on: February 7th 2018

Safer internet day

For the second year running, Amery Hill School has got together with hundreds of organisations across the country to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.  Co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the slogan for this year’s campaign was ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect: a better internet starts with you.’

Speaking about the school’s involvement, Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Joleen Riley, commented “Safer Internet Day offered the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. This year we hosted a parent’s information evening, as well as whole school assemblies and tutor time activities to help reinforce the message. Part of educating our students to become valuable members of society is to support them to make sensible choices about their internet use, so that they know how to remain safe on-line.”

Amery Hill Prom - sunshine, sparkles and sophistication

Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at Froyle Park, Upper Froyle. Everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the make-up! Talking about the event, Progress Leader, Mr Owain Lewis, commented “The arrangements for the evening were led by the Student Prom Committee, who organised the event like a team of professionals! Having worked so hard over the past few months for their GCSE exams, it was lovely that the students could celebrate together. They had a fantastic evening and it is definitely one they will remember.” The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at Amery Hill School, including a fantastic display of vintage vehicles, a variety of sports cars and even a tractor, a doughnut-performing Rotax kart and an articulated lorry cab, more commonly used to haul a 44 tonne trailer! The fly past by a yellow tiger moth biplane seemed coincidental, or was it?   It was wonderful that so many members of the community came out to wish them well and make them feel special for the evening. Tutors and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings of Froyle Park before sitting down to dinner which was followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off at Froyle Park with plenty of photo opportunities and dancing.   To view the photos from the evening click here If students would like electronic copies of their own photos please contact Mrs Rose in the ICT Department.View Article
