For more information, contact Ellen Bagnato, Director of College and Career Advising, at: [email protected] Junior Exhibition Presentations: Monday, March 21. All Juniors are required to complete a multi-faceted project, called Exhibition, through which students execute in-depth research into a topic about which they are passionate. Our Juniors have spent the past year researching their topics, and on Monday, they will present their findings to the school.

Exhibition assessment is based both on a written component (8 12 pages) and on an oral presentation (20 25 minutes) and includes face-to-face feedback and evaluation from a jury of teachers. Successful completion of the Exhibition requires students to work independently, develop a thesis, think creatively, research complex topics, synthesize information from a variety of sources, and present confidently to an audience of faculty and peers. For more information, please contact Maria Piasecki at: [email protected] 3 TSA s Cafe Night and Dinner, Thursday, March 24th: Dinner from 5:30-6:30, show starts at 6:30pm.

A TSA tradition is to invite the public to come see our entry in this year s one-act festival and discuss the show with the cast afterwards. This year we re sharing the play Betweenity by Lindsay Price , a quirky creative look at those awkward pauses that exist in the spaces between . It s got comedy, drama, and perhaps even a message!

Come enjoy the beauty of what happens when creative, intelligent students exercise their imaginations under the leadership of a patient, experienced, and respected student director, Robin Chadwell. Cast members include freshman Claire Jenisch, sophomores Joseph Campbell, and Kian Kaufmann, juniors Alex Binzen, Tray Fisk, Harvey Kelly, and seniors Clara Young, Otis Hudnut, Lucia Gagliardone, Izzy Byrne, and Quinn Thomashow. There is no admission charged, although in the interest of transparency, we ll probably put the hat out.

Going to festivals does cost money! (doesn t everything?!) Great news from AVA Gallery and the Best of the Upper Valley High School Exhibition! Seniors Maie Kimball and Izzy Byrne placed first in printmaking and painting, respectively. This is a huge accomplishment for our TSA artists!

More than 150 works of art by students representing 17 high schools are being exhibited at AVA through March 11. Congratulations Maie and Izzy! Thank you to all that contributed to the effort to help dig a well for Fred Tubula, his family and his village.

Fred, our beloved exchange student from last year, lives in a rural area of Kenya where they lack close clean water. But, thanks to the efforts of the TSA community and and an array of extended friends and family we have raised over $4,000 which will pay to drill a well. We could be looking as soon as April to complete this project.

We will keep you posted with the progress. But, in the mean time: Thank you! Thank you!

Improvement at schools was branded insufficient at a debate on Monday evening with Peterborough languishing near the bottom of the education tables. But Peterborough City Council leader and cabinet member for education, Councillor John Holdich, insists he is still the best man to oversee future progress. He said: I believe I m the right person for the job and have the confidence of the schools.

The authority is doing what it can and we do not teach kids. I believe within the area we have responsibility for we have made huge progress. In 2015, Year Six pupils taking their Key Stage 2 exams were five per cent below the national average and GCSE results, which are unvalidated, were eight per cent below the national average.

Stewart Francis, an education co-optee on the council s scrutiny committee, said: As a parent I m going to be slightly dismayed. I might be more dismayed if I m a company looking to come into the area. Liz Youngman, a Church of England representative, said: You ve got to get rid of an excuses culture and get positive aspirations.

Cllr John Shearman, a former headteacher, said: Targets for individual attainment are not rigorous enough. Gary Perkins, the council s head of school improvement, said: What we have allowed mistakenly, I think, is schools to say children have made good progress but not look at national standards for attainment. Cllr Holdich said teaching is improving and the council s school improvement team is nationally recognised.

But he added: It s a bit like football – we are not scoring the goal. Six schools have let us down. We have taken action and one headteacher has left.

Discussing governors, Mr Perkins said: It s about them holding school teachers to account and many are not.

Cllr Darren Fower said he had spoken about governors for a long time, adding: The one word that comes to mind is hallelujah.

I was a governor at Ken Stimpson and I got fed up of the relationship between the headteacher and chair of governors. /if} #if card-flag} /if} > card-author} > card-avatar} card-content}} > card-media} > card-timestamp} > card-action} ]]> References ^ Terms and Conditions ( ^ No thanks, take me straight to the site.

Andrew Johnson – St Hugh's Avenue, Cleethorpes | It's About Your …

Police uncover haul of child pornography 7 October 2015 POLICE found stashes of child pornography after searching a man s computer equipment, a court heard. Andrew Johnson, 29, of St Hugh s Avenue, Cleethorpes, admitted making and possessing indecent images of children between July 2012 and June last year. Jeremy Evans, prosecuting, told Grimsby Crown Court that police received information from the Child Exploitation And Online Protection Centre that an internet user at Johnson s home had accessed illegal images of children.

A search warrant was executed there and a computer and laptop were seized. He denied knowledge of indecent images of children but admitted that he was the only user of the account and had not shared his security details. A total of 106 illegal images of children were recovered from both devices, said Mr Evans.

Chat log messages that were retrieved showed that Johnson had a sexual interest in children, added Mr Evans. The girls involved were aged between four and eight. Simon Hirst, mitigating, said Johnson had shown remorse, was hard working and wanted to tackle his problems.

He admitted being addicted to pornography over a number of years and this had led him to download the material. He had no previous convictions. Johnson was given a three-year supervision order, including a sex offender treatment programme, and was given a five-year sexual harm prevention order.

He was ordered to register as a sex offender for five years and must pay 350 costs.
