Dear Parents/Carers,
I would like to extend a warm invitation to you to join our valuable group of volunteer Parent Voice
representatives at the College.

The purpose of the group is to have in depth discussions with parents about a wide variety of college life. We
tend to discuss no more than three issues in an hour’s meeting. Examples of topics for discussion have been:

● Uckfield College’s whole school strategy for mental health and emotional well-being
● Marking and PIN feedback
● Mentoring
● Rewards and celebrating success

Future agenda items include:

● Careers education
● Student leadership

Both parents and college leaders propose items for discussion.

The Parent Voice group meet with me termly on a Tuesday evening between 6pm and 7pm, a time which we
hope enables you to get to the College after your daytime commitments. We do of course understand that not
all Parent Voice Representatives will be able to attend all of the meetings.

If you are able to offer your time once a term to meet with the group then we would be very pleased to hear
from you. Please email Toni Fletcher, [email protected], to register your interest.

Many thanks

Hugh Hennebry

Y12 Safe Drive - Stay Alive - Thursday 14th November
On Thursday 14th November Lessons 1 and 2 for all Year 12 students will be cancelled so that the students
may attend a safe driving awareness presentation at the East Sussex National. The presentation is funded
and given by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, it is designed to alert young drivers to dangerous driving
behaviour. We have attended this event previously and was an invaluable experience for our students. It is
very important for our Year 12 students to benefit from this experience as so many of them are starting to
drive this year and they need to understand the risks resulting from developing dangerous driving habits.
The presentation is fairly hard-hitting and so some of the students may be a bit subdued after attending it. If
any students feel the presentation may be too much for them they should speak to Miss Wiltshire.

Kind regards - Mr Simmons.

Uckfield College Carol Service 2019 - Hosting a German Student
We have a longstanding exchange relationship with a school in Germany who come and perform with us in
the carol service every year. The German students stay with host families during their 4 nights in the UK and
we are looking for hosts for this year between the 14th - 18th December.

This tradition is into its 17th year and in order to be successful we require a group of host families. Our
students have visited Germany in the recent past and were all graciously welcomed and looked after by their
German hosts.

If you are interested in hosting a German student for this years' carol service please read the a​ ttached letter
and respond using the G​ oogle Form​ in this link.

Please don't hesitate to contact me [email protected] with any queries.

 

Please note any items
unclaimed will be
disposed of.

24-hour challenge for Mind - Y​ 13​ ​The Business Team

The level 3 BTEC business students in year 13 are raising money
for Mind, a mental health charity, by running/cycling for 24 hours.
The event will take place on S​ aturday the 23rd of November
at 9 am on Eastbourne's seafront.​
There are 15 of us taking part - 14 students and our teacher Mrs
Alvarez.
Our intention is to cycle or run for 24-hours nonstop and raise a minimum of £500. We are hoping that
students, staff, and parents will support our challenge by donating via our ​Just Giving page.​ We would also
welcome people joining us for some or all of the challenge.

We will be completing as many 7 mile laps (out and back on Eastbourne seafront) ) as possible in the
24-hours so people could join us for a minimum of 7 miles.
The start of each lap is at Fisherman's Green 131 Royal Parade, Eastbourne BN22 7LH.
Thank you in advance for all of your support.
