Congratulations to ‘Team Legacy 5’ who won the Midlands final of the Toyota STEM Challenge at Burniston today. Lousia Bull, Jess Cowley, Jack Henshaw, Charlie H-Smith and Elliot Johnson are all Year 11 students at the College who are interested in Engineering and science.
‘The challenge was to design and build a program-controlled, autonomous and environmentally friendly model vehicle of the future, using a microcontroller to provide in-built intelligence so it can automatically avoid obstacles.’
They competed against 7 other schools from the Midlands. The prize was £250 for the College and the opportunity to compete in the National Final on Saturday 18th May where they can increase the prize money to £1,000 and win a UK adventure holiday in Cornwall.
Improving literacy in secondary schools: a shared responsibility
Soon after his appointment in January 2012, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills, Sir Michael Wilshaw, gave a speech in which he declared: ‘Improving standards of literacy must be a priority for all our schools.’
Today Ofsted used the College and 5 other schools to illustrate best practice in secondary schools to improve literacy across the curriculum.
As part of the consultation with residents of Kirk Hallam about how they would like to see the £1 million Lottery Fund used in the community there will be a Public meeting on Friday 12th April from 3.30 - 7.00pm at the Community Centre, Kenilworth Drive.
All residents of Kirk Hallam are warmly invited to this event to meet members of the Steering Group and to express their views on the aspects of Kirk hallam that they love and enjoy and on those that they wish to see improved.
Once again the Lakeside Hall looked fantastic and was full to capacity with Year 11 students and their parents as they received their Record of Achievement folder.
Although the weather was much colder than in previous years the students still dressed impressively in smart suits or dresses and braved the cold for photographs outside the Lakeside Building.
This event marks a significant point in the academic life of the students, with exams and results day to follow.
Our guest speaker, Inspector of Police Nick Daines, inspired the students with a speech based on a quote from Martin Luther King about education. Martin Luther King said education should be 'intelligence plus character.' This said Inspector Daines is how the students should view their time in formal education and that the College has provided the students with a vast range of opportunities beyond their exam subjects. Today was a celebration of all these achievements.
The Key Stage 4 Team, Mrs Bramley and Mrs Tadman (who produced a wonderful buffet) and Mrs waterall (who produced the RoA folders) were thanked by the College Principal Mr Hamer.
