Volunteer Owen Meets Mayor at Tottington Centre Grand Opening

Volunteer Owen Meets Mayor at Tottington Centre Grand Opening

Parent News

Tottington High School Year 9 student, Owen Sheen was commended today by Councillor Yvonne Wright for his help in converting Tottington Library into newly refurbished community-run Tottington Centre, which officially opened its doors to the public yesterday in an Grand Opening ceremony.

The former Town Hall building on Market Street in the village was last occupied by Tottington Library which closed last year due to funding cuts by Bury Council. Not to let a good building go to waste, a group of volunteers, The Friends of Tottington Library, rallied round and decided to restore the building, create some spaces for community groups and rent out office space and conference rooms in order to raise enough money to keep the building open and provide a number of much-needed services to the people of Tottington.

Owen visited the Friends of Tottington Library one day and offered his services as a volunteer. During the weeks and month leading up to yesterday’s relaunch, Owen has removed furniture in some rooms to make way for various classes and groups to occupy the newly-created space, he has undertaken litter-picking on the car park and the surrounding grassed areas, he has helped move lots of items from one room to another, and using his own initiative, he has mopped floors, cleaned the stairs and wiped down paintwork. Working alone or with friends, Owen has offered to do the gardens and clear leaves this weekend.

Cllr Wright, one of the organisers and events co-ordinator at Tottington Centre said “Owen is very well-mannered, courteous and respectful to all the people he has come across – mostly his grandparents age! He is very unassuming, which is a very good quality in life, and I am proud to say he is one of our most valued volunteers,” and added “what a good job his parents and Totty High have done!”

Owen was invited, along with all the other volunteers and local business owners, to attend the Grand Opening of The Tottington Centre yesterday afternoon, and he met the Mayor of Bury who was happy to pose for a photo or two with Owen at the entrance to the Centre.

There’s something for everybody, so call in sometime and give the volunteers your support. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer yourself, you can contact the Centre through their website and fill-in the enquiry form.

Revision Guides for Students and Parents

Revision Guides for Students and Parents

Parent News

We have produced two GCSE Revision Guides for our students and parents. The Student Revision Guide is packed with useful advice for students about the exams they are about to sit – how to prepare, what to expect, and what you need. The Parent Revision Guide provides parents with advice about how to support your child, plus there is information for students which parents should try to share with them.

The Year 11 students will each receive both Revision Guides and they are encouraged to read them both Guides carefully several times during their exam preparation. Parents are also advised to read both Guides too so that they know what to expect, understand how their child may be feeling and experiencing, and how best to support their child in the days and weeks leading up to the summer exam period.

These Revision Guides are also available as interactive PDFs to view online or to download. They are available on our Exams page, along with other vital exam information.

Revision Universals – helping you to revise more effectively

Revision Universals – helping you to revise more effectively

Parent News

Our Head of History, Dr Hall, delivered two sessions to Year 11 students during a conference which were developed as a guide to effective revision strategies. The ‘mantra’ for the strategy is O.M.G:

  1. Organise: use headings and subheadings to chunk revision into manageable pieces
  2. Minimise: reduce revision to the essential knowledge (don’t waffle) whilst retaining the ‘sense’ of what you’re revising
  3. Graft: Get Going

Below is the PowerPoint presentation which Dr Hall used to teach the students how to implement the strategy so that they can improve their perfomance throughout this summer’s GCSE exam period.
