Author Visit
Author, Sufiya Ahmed will be visiting Sydenham School to discuss her new book, Secrets Of The Henna Girl, and the issues around teenage forced marriages. The presentation will be made to all Year 9 students and selected others in the Main School Hall on Thursday 15th March.
Every student in the school will have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book for £5 at lunchtime in the LRC.





On Monday our Debating Club went to Conisborough College for the second round of the Urban Debate League against other SE London schools.  They debated two motions, "This House would stop the protection of endangered animals", and "This house would ban the use of child actors". We entered two teams and won 3 out of the four so an excellent result! Well done to the students involved.

STEM Careers Week
All year groups will have an outside speaker from Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths coming in to their Senior Leadership Team assembly during the week of 12th-16th March.
