A-level Art Exhibition and Alumni Evening 2017

The Altrincham Grammar School for Girls annual art exhibition and alumni evening was held on Tuesday 20th June. It was a superb opportunity to celebrate the work of their talented A level students and an opportunity for students who graduated from as long ago as 1956 to mingle with the proud parents, the students and other invited guests.

It was a beautiful summer evening and the work matched the lovely weather with a varied and rich selection of styles full of quality and creativity on display. Phil Doyle director of Manchester based architects 5Plus was on hand to award the inaugural 5plus AGGS “Creativity in the Arts” prize to a deserving selection of students. 5Plus are keen to promote the importance of the arts and are already involved in similar schemes with the Manchester Art School. Voted the best architectural practice in the North West for the last two years, they are keen to recognise up and coming talent. There was certainly no shortage to choose from in this exciting and diverse exhibition.

We Love Manchester Emergency Fund Collection

Following the recent terror incident at Manchester Arena, we decided to raise money in school for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. To do this, we held charity collection buckets at the end of the year group assemblies to collect any loose change from pupils. This proved to be very successful as we managed to raise an astounding £500 in total! The money raised will be used to provide for those affected by the devastating incident in Manchester and their families at this difficult time. We would like to thank everyone for their donations!

Fundraising for the Manchester Emergency Fund

Yesterday was AGGS’ annual Open Day and as usual we have been making products to sell to the parents and pupils looking around. This year we made acrylic key rings using the laser cutter that could be personalised with names.

MCR Key-ring

To celebrate being part of Greater Manchester the Manchester bee was included on the design as well as a hexagon from the school logo. This also meant it saved lots of material as the shape could be tessellated!

We raised over £150 which will all be donated to The Red Cross Manchester Emergency Fund.

Next week the bee key rings will be available to order for staff and pupils. More information coming soon!

 

Thought for the Week

A bad word whispered will echo a hundred miles.

(Chinese Proverb)

Help me to always speak kindly of others or to remain silent. Amen
