Discord

This week I’d like to highlight Discord. It is growing in popularity and if your son enjoys gaming he may be aware of it and possibly using it. It is age-restricted. Pupils should be 13 +

Please read the attached information on Discord and make sure you are fully aware of the issues associated with its use.

Senior Google Classroom

Senior Parent Feedback

Please find a form for Senior parents to feedback on Google Classroom below the video. This will help us develop our responses and inform the school on how the pupils are coping with the classroom. A seperate form will be posted for Junior parents next week.

Also a short video about viewing homework on Google Classroom for Senior school parents.  I hope this helps to improve your experience.

Thank you

Odd Socks Day

Odd Socks Day

 

We are supporting Anti-Bullying Week and invite the boys to come to school wearing Odd Socks (socks which don’t match) on Monday 16th November.

BOYS MAY COME TO SCHOOL WEARING ODD SOCKS BUT SHOULD WEAR THEIR NORMAL SCHOOL SHIRT/JUMPER /BLAZER/TIE AND SHOES.

The idea of wearing odd socks is to symbolise that we are all different and that children should be themselves, accepting of one another and to celebrate difference.

A suggested donation of £1 (or more) would be gratefully received and will be donated to a charity chosen by the boys through the student council.

The school has set up a Just Giving page for parent’s convenience at Keble Water Just Giving

The school council have chosen the Charity: Water

It’s Mission: To bring clean, safe water to people in developing countries. More information on this can be found on their website link below.

KEBLE PARENTS, FRIENDS & FAMILIES, THANK YOU!

A huge thank you Keble parents for your kind and generous support. You’ve raised an amazing amount of money, at the last count we were up to around £1600. If you haven’t yet submitted your sponsor money, you still have until 20th November to donate via our Just Giving link which you can find here Just Giving Page 

It was such a fun morning and so lovely to see boys and colleagues from other ‘bubbles’, albeit from a distance. It really was a whole school event, including our lovely kitchen staff, it really lifted everyone’s spirits.

With the boys and staff in bright colours, laughing and marching, it definitely brightened up a November morning with lockdown looming. Now whether we managed to all march and clap in time is another matter, but we sure had fun trying.

The main reason for this event of course was to raise money for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust who support children and young people struggling with mental health. This is going to be a huge boost for them as most of their fundraising has stopped at a time when their support is needed the most.

We hope that the film brings a smile to your face….enjoy! We would also like to share this with CWMT. If you have any objections to this please let me know via email ppontin@kebleprep.co.uk

Many thanks once again.
