SMSC at Winston

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural

Integral to Winston

Year 7 Work

Year 7 students produced some superb work regarding religions of the world.  Each student had the opportunity to present their work in an original format.  They demonstrated the ability to reseach and to analyse the information available to them.  Having made a selection of the most relevant information they set about reproducing the work in a style that is eye catching and interesting.  Well done Year 7!

 Team Super Schools


 On Thursday 16th October Winston played host to Goldie Sayers, a three time British Olympian.  Goldie is the British Javelin record holder.  Students were able to meet her and have a picture taken.  Years 7 and 8 then completed a number of physical activities raising money through sponsorship for the charity, as well as the school.

The PE Prefects and staff were on hand to motivate students to do their best and the Year 7 and 8 students threw themselves into the task of completing as many repetitions as possible.





 Motivating Our Learners



 
 
Some students in Years 8 and 9 had the opportunity to attend a motivational session with an outside speaker from Made Education.  The aim was to look at how to become a successful learner by identifying the barriers or distractions and coming up with strategies to aviod them in the future. 

Celebrating Dancing Success


One of our students will be performing in Swan Lake with the English Youth Ballet at the Rhoda McGaw Theatre in Woking in November.  Lauren is a GCSE Dance student and we wish her every success in the production and hope to have some photographs for a future blog.

Levi Roots at Winston

Inspiring our Students

Levi Roots came to Winston with the intention of inspiring our students through food, music and what it is to be an entrepreneur.  The visit was arranged by Mrs Vadi, who ensured that Levi would have maximum impact across the school by working with students from the Business Department, the Music Department and finally in Food Technology.  Levi even gave an inpromptu performance at break in the main hall, which was appreciated by all the staff and the students.





 Levi said:
"I really enjoyed my visit to the wonderful Winston Churchill School. I was inspired by the passion demonstrated by both staff and students. I loved jamming with the music crew and we had a great time cooking my fabulicious jerk chicken together too!"



I would like to thank Mrs Vadi for ensuring that Winston students were able to benefit from Levi's experience in the world of business, food and music, by demonstrating that the work we do in school can be applied to life beyond education.
