12 Dec Keeping up to Date:September-December 2011
At the start of this academic year I began my Blog posts describing a number of new and exciting initiatives and now, as the term draws to a close, it seems the right time to review some of those developments. Our Moodle VLE has been well used by some of our girls and I am really pleased that it provides an opportunity for parents to learn a little more about all the events and activities that take place in school on a regular basis.
Our new Blogs website really has gone from strength to strength and has proved to be a fantastic way of communicating with parents. Mrs Rutter has done a wonderful job updating, often on a daily basis, all the fund raising activities taking place in school. Our PA have also posted a couple of blogs about their work for the school. My thanks go to all those staff who have posted their blogs this term- Mrs Bagnall has even been responsible for two Blogs on the website!! So an enormous thank you to the staff, and girls, for making the site such a success. We have plans for a number of new blogs in the Spring term !!! So do keep accessing the site in 2012.
I thought I would give everyone a preview of a number of other developments in terms of showcasing the work of the school and the girls. We are about to launch our own YouTube Channel with films and podcasts made by the students.
We now have a new Flickr slide show so girls can view all of the latest images of trips and productions. And last, but not least, we now have our own dedicated Twitter feed just for school events, many thanks to Old Edwardian Harriet Dyke for tweeting and keeping everyone up to date with KEHS activities and successes.
So it’s been a busy, enjoyable and productive term. And there is so much more to look forward to in 2012! Hope everyone has an excellent break and a well deserved rest over the Christmas holidays.
