Our LGBTQ+ students have been invited to represent the school as part of the Pride in Diversity celebrations taking place in Harrogate next week to raise awareness and to celebrate the diverse community in our area.
On Tuesday 16 May they will be speaking about their work at Rossett at the Pride in Diversity conference at The Crown Hotel and on Saturday 20 May they will be taking part in the Pride in Diversity parade which will commence at Montpellier Hill at 11.45am and finish at Valley Gardens at 12.45pm.
Information Evening – 17 May 7pm
Following on from the success of the recent drug information evening hosted at St John Fisher Catholic High School (SJF), the Harrogate secondary schools will collaborate again in our efforts to support parents/carers.
Our next information session will look at the topic of self-harm and will enable the SJF pastoral team to share with you a free online parenting course, as recommended by our local Prevention Service. A recent self-harm survey showed that approximately 50% of people have some experience of self-harm and yet 65% of parents have never discussed this issue with their sons and daughters.
St John Fisher Catholic High School is hosting the information support evening, which is open to all parents/carers locally, on Wednesday 17 May at 7.00pm. The session will be run by members of their Pastoral team, including the Deputy Headteacher. If you are interested in attending this session please email firstname.lastname@example.org at St John Fisher Catholic High School for further information.
Temporary Travel Passes
Please can you remind your child(ren) that from Monday 15 May, temporary travel passes for the Leeds Buses will only be available from the Finance Office before school, at break-time and at lunchtime. Passes will not be issued after 2.10pm.
