Year 7 – Tree Planting Day
Year 7 Woodland Trust Tree planting
On Friday 29th November all of our resilient Year 7 students braved the early morning frost to plant 250 trees as part of the Woodland Trust scheme. The scheme offers free saplings to community groups and schools who are willing to plan, plant and care for them. It was a fabulous, but very muddy day, and we will look forward to seeing the saplings develop and grow into trees.
For more information on The Woodland Trust and how you can help the environment please visit their website.

‘Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Future’
Abbie Carter, from Year 12, was one of the citizen journalists to take part in the university’s ‘Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Future’ two-day event in October, led by their Chancellor, the Archbishop of York.
All of the young people involved in the Citizen Journalists role were magnificent and truly blossomed in confidence during their two days there. They really did ask some tough questions of the panellists at each of the events from Barrow to Carlisle, and their presentation at the Youth Conference in Carlisle was so inspiring that it left our team who had been with them throughout the two days welling up with pride and with lumps in their throats.
To think that they didn’t know each other when the event started, they went on to deliver a presentation that was delivered to a very tight deadline with a short time scale to prepare (due to such a tight schedule) and with strength, passion, knowledge and belief that they hold the key to a positive future for them and their peers.
A member of the team from the university said the following about Abbie who played such a major and wonderful part of all of the programme.
“Her questions and comments have been so relevant, confidently presented to large groups of major players and delegates, and delivered perfectly.
Well done Abbie! I have no doubt she has a bright future ahead of her.”

Congratulations to Ruby!
Congratulations to Ruby Armstrong who is preparing for the World Championships in Muay Thai (Thai Boxing)
Ruby travelled to Oldham at the start of the half term holiday to come away with a massive win and see her crowned the new warriors rising junior British Champion, Ruby also sits highly ranked and is currently UK number 3 but this win should also see her moved up to be the UK number 1 in the national junior rankings.
On top of this already massive achievement, she was also spotted and selected to join Team GB to compete at the Unified World Championships. These take place in Italy. Again this is huge for Ruby and we are sure she’ll do very well, who knows she may even come back a world champion. Best wishes, Ruby!
