A Great Opportunity

A group of Year 9 students went this week to attend the Ryedale District Council Opportunity Knocks event, held in conjunction with NYBEP and Derwent Training.

The event brought together young people and employers from across the Ryedale area, helping to establish good relationships, understanding and communication links.

Many employers and training associations came along from different industries including engineering, the arts, local councils and the National Parks.

Leaflets and lots of posters and forms were handed out to the students of Malton School to give them ideas and to help plan for careers, think about apprenticeships and places to go to study qualifications you need to get the job you want.

It is important for students to have these types of opportunities as early as possible so they know for sure what they want to do. It also means they can be prepared when choosing their GCSE options.

Year 9 student Annabel Williams was inspired by the music college stall. She said: “I enjoy music and it’s something that interests me. I’d like this music college and thanks to opportunity knocks, I have an opportunity to look into it.”

Geography Field Trip to York

GCSE geography students went on a field trip to York before half term.

The trip was mainly along the River Ouse in York to get an example of the geology and to help students with their study on rivers and flood defences.

We looked at where the River Foss and the River Ouse join to become one. The trip was very useful in helping with our GCSE Geography studies.
