Unicef & Clarks 'ShoeShare' 

24th November 2017

On Monday 20th November, students from KTS3, including ‘Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Steering Committee’ members, delivered 8 large bags of used shoes to Clarks at Guisborough on behalf of KTS as a contribution to the Unicef ShoeShare appeal.

 

‘That’s the biggest donation of shoes we have had in one go’ commented Clarks staff, who were delighted to accept the shoes which will now be recycled.

 

In recognition of every tonne of shoes donated, Clarks make a contribution to Unicef to support children’s education around the world.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed their old shoes to help children everywhere.

 

You have helped enable all children to experience their right to education (Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child).

'Children In Distress' Charity Shoebox Appeal

10th November 2017

Every year, charity organisation ‘Children in Distress’ ask for support from businesses all over the country to support their ‘Love in a Box’ Shoebox Appeal.

 

‘Children in Distress’ representative Roy Wheeler came to collect the shoeboxes and with the help of pupils from White Class, loaded his van and sent the shoeboxes to some of the poorest infants, children and senior citizens in Europe.

 

We would like to say a massive thank you to the pupils, parents and staff for supporting the annual shoebox appeal.

Time to Talk Walk

Wednesday 18th October

Businesses across Teesside are hoping to improve the workplace environment through a range of courses being offered by mental health charity, Mind.

 

Recently, the Mind Team visited KTS Academy and our staff are completing group workshops throughout the Autumn Term to talk about Mental Health.

 

Mental health is something we all need to be aware of and look after, in the same way we need to keep our bodies fit and healthy. One in four of us will suffer from a mental health difficulty in our lives. By taking part in small activities such as a walk and talk, you are not only helping your own wellbeing, but you will be helping others around you without even realising.

 

KTS staff completed a Time to Talk Walk from Brottton to Saltburn and it was a hit!

It was a lovely evening for a walk and it was a wonderful opportunity to get some well-deserved fresh air, take in the lovely views and stretch our legs whilst chatting to colleagues we don’t often get to see during our busy working days.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to run a summer school in 2017/18.

This is due to the increasing complexity of needs of the children and the staffing and other resources required to ensure their safety.

We will ensure you are kept informed of any alternative provision which may be provided within the authority.
