Humanities Week is back … Monday 10 February - Friday 14 February 2020
Humanities Week has become an integral annual celebration of all things social science. A real period where events, competitions and festivities in general, motivate students to explore a wide range of interests and give them a thirst for discovery.

Teachers and students have been working really hard to put together a spectacular calendar full of model making competitions, quizzes, bake-offs, sixth form seminars, external speakers etc... and we are really excited!

So why are we calling all parents...? We always love it when parents take part!

If anyone at home has a passion, hobby or job that in any relates to Humanities (difficult not too) and would like to come in a share that with our students, we would be very grateful. This could be done in a variety of forums, take your pick from sixth form seminars, to lessons with 30 students, assemblies with anywhere between 60 and 180 students or an optional lunchtime talk for students to opt into... We would love to have you!

If this in anyway interests you, please email Mr Henk straight away on christian.henk@oxted.thpt.org.uk
We look forward to hearing from you!  Team Humanities


 



This year during Humanities Week we will be raising awareness for the work that ‘Love the Oceans’ do out in Mozambique. 

In 2019 Oxted School sent three teams of student volunteers, in partnership with True Adventure, to support the conservation effort in Guinjata Bay. We learnt first-hand that the work they do out there is exceptional. Not only are they developing cutting edge conservation, they are supporting an entire local community to thrive.

‘Love the Oceans’ is a non-profit marine conservation organisation working in Guinjata Bay, Mozambique since 2014. ‘Love the Oceans’ is working to protect and study the diverse marine life found here, including many species of sharks, rays and the famous humpback whales. We use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future.

Year 7 students will be attending a talk from the founder, Francesca Trotman on Monday 10 February and engaging in a mini scheme of work about the world’s plastic problem!

During the week we have welcomed any efforts by the students to raise money for the charity – please do encourage your children to get involved and support them!
