Jamie Dunkley (sixth form charity organiser) and his colleagues held a Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 21st October during their break and raised a staggering £80.46 in the space of 20 minutes. They would like to thank everyone who contributed with cake, assistance and time for making the sale successful.
Year 12 students have shown their enterprising side by setting up four Young Enterprise companies:
The Hamper Company will be assembling and selling a variety of specialist hampers
Divergence will be aiming to raise awareness of racial equality through the sale of T-shirts and wrist bands
Paradox intend to manufacture and sell para-cord bracelets which they will personalise
The 6ix have formed and are currently exploring business opportunities.
On the 27th September students in year 12 were invited along to an exclusive talk by leading human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell at the University of Northampton. The human rights activist, who hit the headlines in 2001 when he was beaten by bodyguards after attempting a citizen’s arrest of Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe, appeared as part of the National Hate Crime Awareness Week, with much of the focus on, in Peter’s words “the unfinished battle for LGBT human rights”.
