Some really helpful information
Singing improves mental health and well being. With that in mind we would like to put together a virtual choir. Learn the song from the video and then share an audio recording with us of you singing the song, the email you need is at the end of the video. You do not need to be a Hartsdown student to take part, we are looking to involve students, staff and local people. When we have enough recordings we will put them together to create a virtual choir, the names and faces of those involved will not be shared. Once we have created our choir we can share it with the local community. This is open to anyone that wishes to take part whether it is students, staff or the wider community.
See video below for instructions.

A few people have asked for some video guidance. I hope this helps.
How to access learning materials
Completing and submitting work
There is no need to print work instead create a google document and share. See video.
Including information about free school meals.
Please see attached letter from Mrs Rigden. This is a great opportunity and suitable for KS4/5.
UPDATE: No longer available
If you are someone you know is in difficulty and on key benefits you can apply for some money from Kent County Council (you need to live in Kent)
Please share with those who may need it
There has been some false information circulating about free gas/electric if you are self isolation.
The advice is (at 26/3)
1) If you have a key meter keep it topped up incase you need to isolate
2) Arrange for a family member/friend to do your top ups
3) If you have issues contact your supplier who will be able to support
4) If you are in financial difficulties contact your supplier. They may be able to defer payments
