Character and Aspiration Day – 24 January 2019

On Thursday 24 January, students took part in a day of activities focusing on a range of themes including leadership, sport and culture. Students in Year 11 took inspiration from The Apprentice and Dragons’ Den, working in teams to create new brands and products which were pitched to a team of ‘dragons’ including Principal, Morgan Thomas. Students in Year 8 were transformed into Maori warriors for the day, exploring Maori culture and art, whilst outside of the classroom students in Year 7 braved the winter weather to participate in a range of alternative sporting events. Year 10 students honed their engineering skills and worked collaboratively to design load-bearing bridges. Year 9 students worked on internet safety and the Sixth Form were put through a series of ‘Krypton Factor’ challenges.

These days are a fantastic opportunity for our students to experience a broader curriculum and work more closely with their peers and teachers.
