Y12/13 Classics Students to Greenwood Theatre
- Venue: Greenwood Theatre
Charity begins with all of us taking accountability for the social issues that surround us. It doesn’t matter if Charity begins at home or at school, as long as we start to understand others needs and how we may help. By addressing issues which may or may not impact us personally, we can begin to make a difference to the lives of others.
Small changes really can have a big impact. First Give is an organisation that helps young people interact with local and national charities, raising the students’ knowledge and understanding of this sector. The charity works to ignite, equip and inspire students to make a difference by taking action to tackle social issues.
Year 8 students have been working on this project through the Autumn term whereby they had to research and select a class charity. All students worked extremely hard to research in to their charities and complete activities to raise awareness and funds.
Students then competed within class to represent the charity in the finale, whereby one group from every Year 8 class went head to head to win the £1000 prize which would be donated to their charity. Well done to all Year 8 students who showed huge amounts of craftsmanship, resilience and empathy over the duration of the project. A special congratulations to Grace Barry, Rosie Carter, Lois Cunningham Tickel and Jodie Walsh who practised their presentation every lunchtime for 3 weeks and managed to secure the £1000 for Child Poverty Action Group.

On Wednesday 26th of June, APS main hall was overflowing with nearly 100 amazing science projects from our local primary schools. The Science Fair day offered KS2 pupils with the best projects the opportunity to see others' projects, explain their work to the judges, complete a lab sessions at APS, see a science show and have a chance of winning an award and prize!
The quality of the projects was incredible, with topics like ‘how could we survive on Mars, ‘how will brexit affect fruit and vegetable standards’, ‘global pollution’, ‘robotics’, ‘non-newtonian fluids’, ‘density’ and many more! The students from Y3-Y6 explained their projects amazingly often with excellent practical demonstrations. Over the course of the day, the project stands were visited by 100s of KS3 pupils as well as staff and judges.
On the day we were also joined by seven teach maths and physics interns and five STEM ambassadors, this provided excellent careers links, guidance, and an unbiased supply of judges! As well as displaying their project, the primary students also attended two workshop sessions, 1 making bath bombs and the other on balanced forces. We could not have run this day without the help and support form a brilliant Y7 STEAM club and a team of Y10 and Y12 helpers so huge thanks to you guys too.
