Lots to look forward to as we prepare to welcome back students
There is a lot to look forward to as we prepare to welcome back students to Worth next week.
The Lent Term begins on Monday with boarders returning from 6pm and classes beginning on Tuesday, when day students return. While Years 11 and 13 work towards their public examinations in the summer, this term is important academically for all students as they continue their journey through Worth.
The School, though, recognises the significance of extra-curricular activities and the idea of a balance to be achieved between academic focus and recreational enjoyment. In that respect, there is plenty for students to enjoy whether it be music, drama, sport or whatever their chosen interest.
Musically, there is a lot going on in the Lent Term including the Worth Musician of the Year Semi-Final on Wednesday 13th March, a piano showcase concert (1st March), a chamber music/informal concert (6th March) and the Worth Choral Society and Orchestra Concert on Sunday 17th March. All students will have the opportunity to be involved in the House Music Competition on Thursday 28th March.
The next drama production will be Mary Poppins across three nights in March from the 19th to the 22nd. More information on that production in due course.
Sporting highlights of the Lent Term include the hugely popular Worth Rugby Sevens Festival on Sunday 10th March and the Worth Junior Cross Country races the same month. Today (Friday), the senior football squad headed to Devon where they will prepare for the SKILS League at the Plymouth Argyle academy facilities.
The first week of term includes Family Mass on Saturday 12th January, to which all parents invited, and the term will conclude with another ski trip to Austria, the first having taking place in December. There are also two Open Days (2nd February and 16th March) which will give prospective students an opportunity to find out about Worth.
