Generous students donate to shoebox appeal
By Aysha, Sixth Form student.
We proudly announce that we collected 101 shoe boxes for the shoebox appeal this year, meaning we broke the academy’s past records!
I am Aysha (Sixth Former) I lead this project and managed every job from promoting to organising the shoe boxes throughout. Further to this, we promoted this project by going to assemblies to advertise to other students from lower school. I also made posters to display on the reception screens and in library to advertise the shoebox appeal. When we collected products from students we rewarded them with Vivos and points for their Family to encourage them.
These shoe boxes will go to children who don’t get presents on Christmas. We did this project to bring smiles on children’s faces.
Mr Brice gave me a Shout out and praised my leadership in excelling this project.
The Sixth Form have been busy with a range of interesting activities over the last few weeks, as Aysha explains.
Did you know that young drivers are more likely to get involved in road crash?
We went to Middleton Arena to increase our knowledge on safe driving and how our decisions impact on others' lives. Nearly 1 in 4 deaths on the road are made from drivers aged 17-24? This happens due to lack of knowledge or inexperience. The aim of this campaign is to make sure that none of students get involved in those incidents in their life; they make sure we have enough knowledge about the precautions when driving.
We attended the Christmas fair at MCMA to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust (we are taking part in Runway on the Runway for this charity this year). We made candy cones (including Halal ones as well for Muslims) which we sold for £1 each. Also we made biscuits in the Academy to sell in the Christmas Fair.
The outcome of doing this fair making products was very successful as we made profit. We are well on track for raising lots of money for the Teenage Cancer Trust - our charity of the year.
