The Amp Awards (Battle of the Bands) due to be held at the College on Friday 30th January has been postponed until Wednesday 11th February.
The community worked together today throughout the local area helping each other in the snow.
Here at Darton College we were very grateful for the assistance given to the learners who were on the 488 Stagecoach bus which had become stuck in the snow on Sackup Lane in Darton.
Stagecoach arranged for available staff members to make their way to the vehicle and remained with the learners until the bus was able to make its way to the College. We are extremely grateful for their assistance with keeping learners safe and in keeping the college informed of the situation which we were able to pass on to parents and carers.
A local resident on Sackup Lane was very hospitable by helping learners stay warm by making cups of hot chocolate and keeping the learners calm.
A staff member from Darton College also stranded at home near the scene of the bus made her way to the vehicle and remained with the learners providing reassurance and Jammie Dodgers, whilst her husband helped Stagecoach staff dig the snow away from the tyres.
It is at times like these when it feels good to know that the community can pull together and help each other in times of need. I can imagine that there were many acts of kindness taking place across the borough today.
The school will be open today as normal – please continue to monitor the website for further up-dates.
Due to adverse weather conditions, it has been decided to cancel the A* English Workshop, this afternoon, Wednesday 21st January 2015. However, students will not miss out, as extra sessions will be run after the half-term. The session will run as usual next week.
Many thanks for your understanding.
