Ukraine and Afghanistan Humanitarian Appeal

Ukraine and Afghanistan Humanitarian Appeal

Ukraine and Afghanistan Humanitarian Appeal: £1438.55 raised!

In response to our school community wishing to support the global refugee crisis we held a dress down day on Friday the 11th March.   Donations given on the day were used to support the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) who bring together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas.   The DEC are currently supporting the Ukraine humanitarian appeal and the Afghanistan crisis appeal which are currently highest in the priority for any funding.

The idea was brought to Interact by an S4 pupil who felt that something should be done to help those affected by the crisis.  The school backed her request and the Interact club helped to support the event and make as much as possible.  We were overwhelmed to raise £1438.55 which is the most we have ever raised in a dress down day.

If you have any questions about the DEC please have a look at their website below:

The Interact club meet twice a week and if you want to get involved please see Mrs Rees-Jenkins or Miss Lovelock.

S1 McDonald’s Challenge

S1 McDonald’s Challenge

S1 Business & Admin have been learning about the internet.  They have been learning about copyright, branding and competition and staying safe online.  At the end they had to create a presentation about McDonald’s.  They looked at the history of McDonald’s, Branding and Competitors as well as their Social Media Presence.  They were asked to use the knowledge from the unit to give McDonald’s advice on how they could improve their business.

Well done S1!

Coding Prize Winner

The Business Education and Computing Science Faculty were very excited to find out that Finlay in S3 had won a prize in the DressCode Halloween coding competition.  Finlay is pictured below with his prize.  The only criteria for the Scratch coding competition was that there had to be a haunted house.  Finlay said “My entry was a haunted  house and it included a monster which was bitten by a bat and turned into a vampire – I’m really delighted with my prize and really enjoyed coding my competition entry”.  Well done Finlay, we all hope you enjoy your prize which is a Divoom Pixoo Pixel Art digital photo frame.
