Enrichment Week at Westfield Senior House

01 July 2013

A busy week for the girls in the last week of term, filled with interesting projects, visits out of school on Service Projects, a Rounders Match and plenty of inter-house activities.


Enrichment Week is always an exciting time at the end of the school year, both educational and very enjoyable.  A Soapbox Challenge has been set. Two  teams from each House will take part in a competition to design and build a "soapbox" or racing machine (only human powered).  This involves a variety of teamwork, research, design, business, technology and creativity skills.  We will be using recycled materials in keeping with our eco school policies.  The final race will take place on the Town Moor on Friday 5 July, subject to weather conditions, with permission from the Stewards Committee of Freemen. Come and watch the race.  There will be lots of cheering!


Girls will be participating in service projects, in keeping with our Round Square Pillar of Service commitment.  They will be visiting Hadrian School, Gibside, Percy Hedley, Sir Charles Parsons and Thomas Bewick Schools, helping at St. Oswald's Hospice and performing musical pieces at a local residential care home.  Girls will also be helping with a Grandparents' Tea Party as part of the Enricment programme.  A busy but very rewarding week for all the girls.
