Welcome to this week’s Chapel Service. All other broadcasts can be found on the Chaplaincy @Home page on the website. 


 

Children of Key Workers / Change of Scene 

We will continue to offer a provision for children of Key Workers in school but in addition, we are aware that a number of pupils are getting to the stage where they need a change of scenery and would find it helpful to work in school, either in the Library or a classroom environment. Please email Deputy Headmaster, Mr Andrew Hall on ashall@deanclose.org.uk if you would like your son or daughter to take advantage of this opportunity. In order to provide lunch, we would need to know the evening before. 

 

Job Opportunity  

Upper 6th Leavers 

Each year St John’s on the Hill, our Prep School in Chepstow appoint 3 Gap Assistants to support the school in their day to day operations. It is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a broad range of areas. If you are interested in applying for this role, please email Mr Jason Dobbie on dobbiej@stjohnsonthehill.co.uk expressing your interest.
 

Daily Exercise Diary 

We are very keen to ensure that all our pupils are maintaining a regular exercise programme, which is proven to be a great antidote for stress, and a enhances physical and mental well-being. As such, the Physical Education and Sports Department have created a daily exercise diary for the pupils to complete. It literally takes less than a minute to complete after an exercise session, but will give the PE Department and Houseparents a really good insight into the individual pupil’s activity levels. Pupils can follow this link to complete their diary!
