  1. Rationale & Feedback

In January/February, we asked over 100 S1-S6 students which form of social media they use most and why. The unanimous response was “Instagram” and some of their reasons were:

The benefits from a school point of view are:

  1. Support

In the next few weeks, we are going to offer an interactive ‘Instagram Tutorial’ to help our staff get up and running on Instagram and we will also share a ‘How To’ guide with staff and families.

  1. Engagement

Since Saturday, staff have been completing daily challenges such as the NHS 5K Run and Shakespeare reenactments. We’ve been posting our videos and pictures along with a couple of clues so that our followers can ‘guess the member of staff’. Engagement and responses have been brilliant and we hope to see students and families take part too.

PE Department Instagram

The PE department is also on Instagram @lasswadesports. Through this difficult time they are posting challenges, work outs and dances to lift everyone’s spirits and keep everyone active during the lock-down. Challenges have ranged from fitness challenges, to Tik Toks and sports challenges using a toilet roll.

For each challenge they are asking students to get involved and send in their attempts at each challenge. There has been a fantastic response from students and some family members sending back videos of them getting active and being creative. Well done to those who have got involved so far and for anyone who would like to get involved head over to Instagram and follow @lasswadesports.
