As part of their Citizenship coursework students in Year 11 have been working on their group projects to raise awareness about a social issue. This week, the school had a chance to celebrate the work of the Year 11 students and learn about some of the most important and topical subjects today. Here are the events that took place during this week:
Thursday 17th February (lunchtime) - Staff vs Students Dodgeball: A group of year 11 pupils have organised this to raise awareness about healthy eating and combating youth obesity The School Fare – Lunchtime
Friday 18th February - Year 11 pupils held stalls in groups which students and staff could visit to learn about a range of issues, from the work of Great Ormond St and Water Aid to fair trade, animal rights, domestic violence and increasing awareness of other cultures. Cakes and snacks were also available.
The first session of Debate Club took place for students in Years 8-10. Debate Club is intended as an extra platform in school for students to develop opinions, speak their minds and learn about the skills of listening, thinking on their feet, analysing ideas and debating effectively. Having successfully defeated debaters from nearby schools, Sixth Former Aramide Ajayi is one of the schools’ debating champions who helps to run Debate Club. All students in Years 8-10 are invited to come to F9 every Thursday to debate!
