  • Thursday 21 December 2023 Reverse Advent Calendar - Foodbank Donations On Tuesday we collected all the boxes that pupils and staff had so kindly filled. Despite the rain the superstar girls in 8B & 8D helped me load the bus. There was a feast of goods and I felt a really warm feeling that as a school we had once again taken up the challenge of the Reverse Advent Calendar. And why not? After all It is a fun way of teaching pupils the importance of helping others and seeing the bigger picture at Christmas and more importantly that they have given a Christmas gift to someone that really needed it.
  • Monday 18 December 2023 STEM@Graveney with TILT Engineers On Wednesday 6th December Tilt engineering consultants brought their whole company of eight engineers to present workshops to year nine girls and A-level Physics students. They took part in concurrent sessions to learn about engineering in the rail industry. Students learned about what an engineer is, career opportunities and the best subjects and degrees to study to become an engineer. Students in the A-level session then designed a pantograph which connects electric trains to the overhead power lines. We had some really interesting designs made in a very short time. The year nine girls conducted some problem solving tasks to show the skills engineers use in their jobs. Feedback from the students was great and the engineers were really impressed with our students and look forward to seeing them in engineering jobs in the future.
  • Monday 11 December 2023 Medicines Sans Frontieres Fundraiser On Tuesday we were delighted to hold our 6th Form Communal Lunch fundraiser in College House Hall in aid of one of our chosen charities Medicines Sans Frontieres/ Doctors Without Borders. This event was the brainchild of 4 of our Senior Prefects: Hunbal, Nyla, Didan and Ngaire as a response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the Middle East. In total 60 students and staff either cooked, baked or helped with the arrangements and approximately 180 students attended the event. Donations were suggested at £3 however we were touched that many students chose to give more. As a result of this, and together with the collection at the KS5 Presentation evening, we have raised over £700 and still counting.
