Success for our Young Interpreters
A group of our Year 9 students recently completed their Young Interpreter Certificates which were presented in the year group assembly. Covering a range of languages including Polish, Spanish and Thai these students will be a great support to their peers as well as opening up potential employment opportunities for the future.
Students visit the House of Lords
A group of our students were amongst the 200 who attended the recent Girls Breaking Barriers event at the House of Lords. This was a chance to have their say on some of the key barriers facing girls and young women in the UK and around the world. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the passing of the Life Peerages Act 1958, which enabled women to be members of the House of Lords.
The 8 girls attended as part of a project they are doing with Getaway Girls and were also involved in chairing some of the debates which focused on four barriers and potential solutions. Each debate was then summarised by a member of the House of Lords before voting. A very memorable experience for all involved.
Tomorrow we look forward to welcoming @thatpoetrybloke who will be entertaining some of our year 7 students with a Christmas Poetry Party.
