πŸŒπŸŽ’ Over the past week, we've had the pleasure of hosting international students from China here at Tranby! This wonderful trip, arranged by Mrs. Douglas - a parent at the school and our Head of Prep Mrs Sweeting, has allowed these students to participate in our lessons and explore many beautiful tourist spots across Yorkshire. It's been an enriching cultural experience for our pupils and our visitors, and truly heartwarming to watch them create unforgettable memories and build strong bonds with their new friends from across the globe. πŸ‘«πŸ’› πŸ™ A big thank you to Mrs Douglas for her meticulous planning, and to our amazing staff for organising and attending the trips (especially those who battled the rain in York on Tuesday, still with smiles on your faces!) Your efforts have made this experience truly special for everyone involved! 🀩 For the full story and all the lovely pictures of the visit, take a screen grab of the link below and either click to follow from your screen grab or copy and paste the URL into your browser! https://www.tranby.org.uk/news-events/news/artmid/651/articleid/326/preview/true/visiting-students-from-china #CulturalExchange #YorkshireAdventures #CommunitySpirit#thetranbyway
#TBT It was a pleasure to welcome former pupil Eileen back to Tranby this week 😊 Eileen very kindly brought some photos from a visit to Stratford-Upon-Avon back in 1961 and an edition of the school magazine featuring the trip write-up by P Saxby; an accompanying Sixth Form pupil at the time. 🏨 The Georgian-built YHA the girls stayed at is still there...but we expect the dorms might look a little different these days! We love hearing stories from our valued alumni about their experiences at the school and discovering where life has taken them since πŸ’› Eileen still lives locally and follows our Facebook page, often commenting with kind words or stories from her time at what was then Hull High School for Girls. Thank you for coming in Eileen, it was lovely to meet you and chat over a cuppa! β˜•
⭐There's nothing better than seeing young people pushing themselves to achieve their dreams⭐ ⚽ Huge congratulations to Y8 (soon to be Y9) pupil Lloyd who has signed for Leeds United's Under 14s team! 🀩 What a huge accomplishment! We are honoured to have been part of your sporting success so far Lloyd, your hard work and talent will take you very far.🌠 Enjoy watching the match this evening, we have no doubt one day it'll be you playing these huge games on the world's stage. Well done! πŸŽ‰
Shortly before we broke off for the summer, Year 9 pupil Oliver won a competition to β€˜shadow’ the judging process for the Yoto Carnegie Medals; the longest-running and most prestigious children’s book awards.πŸ“š πŸ… Oliver won Β£250 for our Book Club, a ticket to attend the Carnegie Medal ceremony where the winners are announced, and a special VIP reception with the shortlisted authors at Cambridge Theatre in London! πŸŽ‰ He was given the most wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with all the shortlisted authors and enjoyed a long conversation with the winning author, Joseph Coelho. Oliver found it a really inspiring occasion, we love to hear it! 🌟 πŸ‘ Well done Oliver and all our brilliant Y9 pupils who entered - it's a joy to watch your love of reading and learning grow πŸ“– and we can't wait to see what Year 10 has in store for you all. In the words of Dr Seuss 'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.' 🌍 Keep calm and carry on reading πŸ˜€
