As part of our Enrichment Programme, Year 7 students will complete a short investigatory trip to Middlesbrough as part of the theme ‘My Community’. This term, the students have had the opportunity to study their own local community in detail. The aim of this trip is to see a very different community. We will visit the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA) and a Mosque. The students are undertaking a series of lessons in College on Islam, as well as partaking in a workshop prior to the visit.
Students will be expected to arrive at the College at the normal time, when they will be briefed on the events of the day. They will then travel from the College to Middlesbrough by coach, and arrive at approximately 10.30am. The students will be divided into groups and each group will spend approximately one and a half hours at the Mosque, followed by lunch in Albert Park. After lunch they will visit MIMA, returning to College for 3.30pm.
Students will need to ensure that they are in normal College uniform and have a warm, waterproof coat with them and suitable footwear for walking in. They must also bring a pen and a pencil with them for the fieldwork activities they will be undertaking. Students will require a packed lunch. Those students entitled to a free school meal will have a free packed lunch provided on the day.
Please note that the College rules on using mobile phones remain in force when students are being addressed and given instructions by their teachers. However, students may use their mobiles during lunchtime and to take photos and video footage at the site for fieldwork purposes. The students can also bring a sensible amount of money if they wish, to make purchases from the gift shop or to buy food in the centre. However, the College cannot be held liable for any loss of property, money or valuables.
For this visit to go ahead, the College asks that parents or carers make a voluntary contribution of £5.00 to cover the cost of the coach. While no Year 7 student will be excluded from the visit, a lack of contributions may lead to the visit being cancelled. Please note that this activity is not covered by ‘Parent Pay’ and only cash or cheques made payable to ‘Caedmon College Whitby,’ can be accepted. Any student not on this trip will remain in College and participate in other enrichment activities.
We need parental consent for students to take part in this visit. Therefore, could you please complete the reply slip and return it to the College Reception, Scoresby Site, no later than Thursday 4 March 2016.
Many thanks for your help and support in this matter.
