Well-being Fridays - New for 2019!

At Haverfordwest High VC School we fully recognise the importance of looking after our emotional health and well-being. That is why, from September 2019, our pupils are being offered the opportunity to leave early on a Friday afternoon to pursue their own hobbies and interests, or to stay and participate in one of the activities we have on offer at school. Most activities will take place on the Portfield site,  starting at 2.00pm until 3.15pm. Shuttle buses will be provided at 1:55, however students will need to make their own arrangements home at 3:15.

 How do I sign up?

To sign up for any of the activities on offer, students will first need to sign into their @Haverfordwesthigh.co.uk  gmail account. Students can acquire their gmail account details from their Form Tutors, then visit gmail.com to sign in. Once students have signed in, they can click on the link below that requires students name, form, class and parent contact phone number. Remember that parent consent must be sought before sign up takes place. 

As you can see from our activity list, numbers are limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Once signed up, students will receive a confirmation email or a message to say the application has been successful. If an activity does not appear on the form, this means that all places have been taken for this half term.  

What commitment am I making by signing up?

Signing up means that you will have committed to attend your chosen activity for the full half term so we do expect you to attend all sessions.

We have a duty to make sure everyone is safe and accounted for at school – as a result, a weekly register will be taken by the providers. If you cannot make a session, you will need to bring a written explanation from home which needs to be presented to Mrs A Gardner or Mrs T. Davies in the Main Reception. Alternatively parents could email contactus@haverfordwesthigh.co.uk  This way, we will know where you are and that you are safe if you have not attended the planned activity.
