Extra-Curricular Activities Begin Again

Extra-Curricular Activities Begin Again

We are delighted to be able to safely re-launch our programme of extra-curricular activities, beginning this week with year 7 bench ball. We are really proud of the variety of clubs we offer at The Earls, as there really is something for everyone; sports, dance, drama, music ensembles, chess, history, eco-leaders, D of E, photography and much more, and we have missed being able to work with the students on these activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mrs Booth, from our PE department, led a group of students in an enthusiastic (and very loud!) game of bench ball this week. Year 7 students Jay, Sahara and Emily described the experience as ‘the best – I’ve missed this during lockdown’, ‘amazing, fun and enjoyable, it makes me happy’ and ‘really exciting – I am so happy we have more activities again’.

Empathy Week at The Earls

Empathy Week at The Earls

In the run-up to Easter, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 at The Earls High School celebrated International Empathy Week. We recognise the vital fact that to create a better world, we need to understand and empathise with the people in it.

Through a series of films, students explored important areas such as Sustainability, Diversity, Mental Health, Black Lives Matter and Immigration. Activities, delivered during regular PSHE lessons, led to wide-ranging discussions about what each of us can do to understand and appreciate ourselves, our friends, and people from all walks of life.

Partnership with our local community is one of our core values at The earls High School, and one that students readily engage with, raising huge amounts of money for local charities.

Recently, the students and staff have donated 1500 items of food to the Halesowen Foodbank. The largest donation was made by form 8A2, who donated a staggering 236 items. We feel incredibly of the whole school community for their efforts and generosity.
