It has been a busy week in school as ever! As you know, we work closely with local primary schools which gives our students excellent opportunities to practice their leadership skills. Last week our Year 10 GCSE Dance students planned and delivered their own creative dance workshops for Year 4 and 5 students at Cottesmore Primary School and this week Mrs Johnson took 20 of our sports leaders over the road to help run their sports day. All students were excellent role models for the younger children.
Our German exchange students are currently in Munich where they are visiting our partner school and immersing themselves in German culture. Such a great experience for them all.
We fully support the need to tackle climate change and its devastating effects. With this in mind, we took a delegation of our Year 9 and 10 students to the CAFOD climate change lobby in Westminster this week. The students met with MP Peter Kyle to discuss climate change issues and understand more about what the government is doing about it. They also met with various celebrities who support the cause including Martin Dougan from Newsround and actor, Cell Spellman.
And finally, nine of our members of staff are currently walking a staggering 52 miles from Charing Cross to Hove overnight in aid of Charlotte’s BAG which is a charity close to all of our hearts. They are due to arrive at the school at 2.45pm today (Friday 28th June) and we are supporting them and the charity by wearing blue.
