Celebrations Day 2022

At Giles Academy, we are always keen to encourage and praise positive behaviour and achievements. On Wednesday 20th July 2022, every student in Year 7 to 10 will take part in a Celebrations Day where they can choose a fun reward activity of their choice.

Students will be grouped into Gold, Silver and Bronze categories based on a combination of factors including attendance, behaviour and their attitude to learning. The category for each student will be indicated on the preference form, which will be sent to parents along with booking information.

There are limited spaces on each reward activity, which is why Gold students will have the first choice of activities, Silver students will have the second choice and Bronze students will choose from the remaining spaces.

There is a wide range of activities available that are either free of charge or have a cost.

To secure a place on a particular activity, booking and payment will be made via ParentMail and allocated on a first come, first served basis. A quick response is therefore advised to guarantee booking as this is a ‘live’ booking system. This information will be sent to parents via ParentMail before half term.

  • Gold students can book from 11am on Tuesday 7th June to Monday 20th June
  • Silver students can book from 11am on Friday 10th June to Monday 20th June
  • Bronze students can book from 11am on Tuesday 14th June to Monday 20th June

Note that students cannot change their choice once the booking has been made and students can only book one activity. If more than one activity is booked, then no refunds are given for any activity not attended.

If students want to choose an activity that is free of charge, this still needs to be booked via ParentMail.
