Year 8 Shine 2022

Your child has received a printed York University “Shine” passport booklet.

There are multiple activities within the booklet for students to complete, including writing a mini personal statement, designing their own society and a cooking challenge, to name a few. The intention of the booklet is to provide students with an opportunity to experience student life for themselves, from thinking about their studies to extracurricular activities and living independently. At the start of the passport booklet, there is a ‘What is Higher Education?’ quiz for students to complete, they will need to research to find the answers, parents please support your child with this.

Students who complete their passport booklet are able to enter the prize draw competition. One winner will be selected from each Shine school. The deadline for Year 8 students to complete their passports is Thursday 31st March. They have been asked to return the passport booklets to their Shine Coordinator in school by this date.

There is also a short video for you to watch.
