Enrichment Week August 2019.
Monday 12th to Friday 16th August was Enrichment week at Parkside Studio College. During the course of the week, Year 10 students came in to catch up on their coursework and to have some Intervention. A joint ‘Boys Day’ function was held for the De Salis and Parkside Studio College male students at the Post 16 centre at Parkside Studio College on Wednesday 14th August.
Guest speakers from the Job Centre, A2 Dominion Group and Hewens College gave students presentations based on Building a Foundation for the Future - Boys to Men. The presentations gave the boys time to reflect on their inner and outer self images, and they were able to work on their skills building by taking part in various activities which were provided by the A2 Dominion Group, the activities also allowed the students to develop the necessary skills needed for the workplace. Representatives from Uxbridge Job Centre spoke to the students about interview techniques and how to complete CV’s to the required standard.
The students were then treated to a carribean themed lunch, prepared by Ms Felix and the Hospitality students. After lunch, a friendly football match took place between Parkside and De Salis, students displayed their competitive sides and a lot of fun was had by all that took part.
