Written by HDHS on . Posted in Parent News, School News, Student News

Pupils at Harwich & Dovercourt High School were treated to spooky, unusual tales by an award winning children’s author this week. Peter Murray, writer of the Mokee Joe series and Bonebreaker trilogy of books, visited us recently.

The much sought after author spoke to year 7 and 8 students about what inspired him to write and told them about each book and its background, in­cluding how the spectacular cover artwork was designed and commissioned.

Harwich and Dovercourt High School have recently had 18 students achieve the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh (dofe) award, which is recognised as the world’s leading achievement award. The students are the first to receive the award from the school. They travelled to Colchester Townhouse to receive their award, along with other young adults who had achieved their award in Tendring. Before the students receive their award they have to complete 4 sections over a 3-6 month period; volunteering, skill, physical and the expedition section.

A real highlight was the Euromast Tower with a spectacular view of the city at night. Behaviour was excellent throughout by all students and their attitudes were fantastic.
