Marcus’ 401 Challenge Game is presented to Ben Smith
Our Yr 9 student Marcus designed his Ball Bearing Game project in his D&T class on a challenge which had inspired him by Ben Smith. When he found out he was attending the nearby MuckleToon festival, he immediately entered. We challenged Marcus to show Ben his work and this was the result!

Former Trinity student Kate McWilliams is 26 and the youngest ever commercial female airline captain.
She flies to around 100 destinations across the world and says most people “are pleasantly surprised and impressed” when she tells them her age.
Last year the airline company announced a plan to increase its number of female pilots. Kate is originally from Carlisle, but now lives in Surrey so she can be near to Gatwick Airport, she began flying in the air cadets when she was 13 years old, but admitted to the Press Association that she never thought she could become a commercial pilot.

Trinity School students took part in the ‘Mayfilmfling’ film festival at Tullie House over the bank holiday weekend.
Students had been working with the school’s poetry group and with guest poet Nick Pemberton for several months learning how to craft and deliver stimulating poems. This culminated in the students creating their own poems about film to recite at the film festival before a screening of the film Paterson. Their poems were inspired by their own cinema experiences which ranged from Heroes and Villains, Star Wars, Cowboys, Superheroes and Marilyn Monroe. Their work was published in a special chapbook to commemorate the evening. The final poem entitled Closing Credits, by Chloe Simpson in Year 11, summed up all their ideas about film:
Blockbusters, rom-coms all the things that you can learn from,
They can make you laugh, cry and more,
An explosion of emotion,
Lights, camera, action,
A show in a fancy cinema,
Luring you in for more,
Fragments of life merged together on a reel,
The outburst of joy when the characters succeed,
The sparkle of achievement,
What is film?
On November 17th I was in London.
I went as an ambassador for Carlisle Youth Zone with an organization called Onside, they work with Youth Zones all over the place. At the moment there are 6 Youth Zones, these are: Carlisle YZ, Wigan YZ, Blackburn YZ, Wolverhampton YZ, …………. and Bolton girls club. There are 3 more youth zones being built in London right now.
When I was in London I went to The Guildhall and gave a speech about Carlisle and how we were affected by the floods last December. I had to speak in front of 400 people including the Lord Mayor. When I did my speech I felt scared at first but as soon as I finished I couldn’t stop smiling. My speech was called ‘Somewhere To Go’. I talked about how when Carlisle YZ was flooded there weren’t any other clubs as big or as fun as the youth zone.
By giving this speech I helped to raise £30 million with Onside and this money will go towards building more youth zones across the country.
I really enjoyed the whole experience and would love to do it again some time.

BRITISH ARTISTS WORKSHOP
AT KINGMOOR SCHOOL
For our work experience, we were given the amazing opportunity to organize and provide a workshop for Kingmoor Junior School’s year 5 students about British identity and what it means to be British. We looked at a range of contemporary British artists including: Banksy, Lauren Child, Antony Gormley, Ed Fairburn, Peter Quinell and Justine Smith. These artists each used very different techniques, such as stenciling, collage and illustration, which gave the children the chance to learn new skills. These artists’ styles influenced and inspired their individual pieces of bunting which will be hung as a permanent exhibition in the school. We were stunned by the children’s marvelous outcomes and their attitudes towards the project. Working with the children was a wonderful experience, with many great memories being made. We feel that this day was a massive success and would like to say a big thank you to both Mrs Reay, and everyone at Kingmoor Junior School for giving us the opportunity to deliver this workshop, and for making us feel so welcome.
