Halewood University

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on our usual practices, we will have some restrictions in relation to our extra-curricular offering to pupils.  We will update Halewood University information as soon as we are able.

HALEWOOD UNIVERSITY

 

Halewood University is our exciting format for extra curricular clubs at Halewood C of E.  We are hoping that it will provide opportunities for children to develop new interests, hobbies and skills, and help children to develop key life skills.

 

Graduation

 

Children who take part in Halewood University will graduate at the end of each year if they successfully complete all elements of the program.  Each year that children complete will result in a higher level of graduation:

 

  • First year of Halewood University – Diploma
  • Second Year – Bachelor degree
  • Third Year - Masters degree
  • Fourth Year – PHD

 

Each level of graduation will require different criteria and different levels of participation. Children who graduated last year will be graduating at Bachelor level upon completion of their modules this year. Children taking part in modules for the first time will be graduating at Diploma level. Please see below for details on requirements for each graduation level.

 

Format for each module

  • Children will need to select 2 modules they wish to take part in. Each module requires the attendance of 4 after school sessions as well the completion of a module task (see below for details of each level of graduation).
  • Children will also need to take part in 2 life skills modules. Each life skills module will be an hour long and will be in the fifth and final session of their chosen module.
  • Children will need to choose a final project to complete, which will be handed in during the summer term. Information about final project options will be handed out after the completion of module 2.

 

Diploma (1st graduation)

  • Completion of two modules and 2 life skills modules.
  • Completion of the module task for each of their modules.
  • Completion of a final project. These will be handed in during the summer term. Information about final project options and ideas will be handed out after the completion of module 2.

 

Bachelor degree (2nd graduation)

 

  • Completion of two modules and 2 life skills modules.
  • Completion of the module task for each of their modules.
  • Completion of a final project. These will be handed in during the summer term. Information about final project options and ideas will be handed out after the completion of module 2.
  • Plan and deliver a short but informative presentation on one of the modules they have been studying. Time will be given to this in school during the summer term.

 

Choosing modules

 

Children will need to choose their first choice and a reserve option in the event of modules being over-subscribed.

 

Please note: if your child has already taken part in a module last year (cookery or Dragons’ Den) then please try to choose different modules this year.

 

Information on module choices needs to be handed in as soon as possible. Letters will be kept in the order they were handed in. Once all reply slips have been handed in, children will receive a letter to let them know which modules they will be attending. This will contain any additional information about the module, including where children need to be collected at the end of each session. Please also complete the attached reply slip.

 

Many thanks,

 

Mr Tunstall
