Working together and staying connected at EGA

Wednesday 13 May 2020

Thoroughout this lockdown, our EGA community (staff, students, parents and carers alike) have been working together to stay connected!


Here are some of the highlights so far:


Success for Year 10 mentoring scheme

A whole school initiative, involving all staff mentoring at least one student from our year 10 cohort has been a major success these past few weeks. Led by Mr Morrissey, we have seen a significant rise in student completion of online tasks as the weeks have gone on. Student completion of tasks have increased to nearly 70% with some excellent work being produced by our students.
