Matching-The-Staff-To-The-Job-History Quiz

Thank you to students and staff who took the time to participate in our quiz as part of the Form Time activities on the first day of #TheWeekOfWork.  Thank you to staff who shared their Job History.  We are really lucky to have such a wealth of experience at Thorpe!

For keen problem-solvers, you may have recognised the pattern: 1A, 2B, 3C, etc. in terms of the questions and the answers.  At some interviews, It’s not uncommon for tasks to be set that are based on hidden problems that need solving; whoever solves the problem, goes through to the next round.  

Sometimes thinking in a different way is key to solving problems.  A few of us may remember the scene in ‘Men In Black’ (1997) when Will Smith’s character solved the ‘writing on the knee’ problem by moving the table, despite it making an awful, metallic, screeching sound across the floor?  His character was selected for original thinking.

Our three winners of the £10 Amazon Gift Vouchers are: Lara from A2, Flynn from P6 and Dominic from C4.  Well done!  Your vouchers will be with you shortly via your school email.

As part of Friday’s Form Time activities, we asked students to create their own logo that would be unique to them.  Two students sent in their ideas.

We’ll be sending each one a £10 Amazon Gift Voucher via their school email address.

Thank you for sharing, Isabella and Nneka!
