Parental Drug Awareness Workshop!

We were very pleased to welcome Vanessa Rogers, a former Hertfordshire County Council Schools Drug Education Consultant, to the School last week. She delivered an excellent drug awareness workshop to a packed audience of parents/carers and staff. She provided practical, up-to-date information and also gave useful tips on how to talk about this sensitive subject at home and initiate a conversation with a teenager.

Many thanks for her kind permission to post the presentation and an information leaflet on our website – please see the ‘Documents’ box to the right in order to view.

DAOS Harmony Group raise money for charity!

The Close Harmony Group went carol singing in St Pancras station during the Christmas period, enjoying lots of festive cheer and support from the thousands of travellers who passed through on their journeys.  In just one and a half hours, they managed to raise £380 for Amnesty International, and many people stopped to listen and appreciate their fantastic singing.  Thanks to Ms Makepeace Lott, the group’s vocal director, and to all the students who gave their time so readily to help support such a good cause!
