Christmas Enterprise markets

Christmas-markets-2015-5 The Y7, 8 and 9 Christmas Enterprise markets have been bigger and better than ever before! The Hall was bustling with Christmas shoppers looking to buy a Christmas bargain. Crafts ranged from couture cupcakes to bath salts, Christmas trees made from newspaper, Emoji biscuits & cards, homemade fudge, candle holders and Father Christmas pompom keyrings.

The talent has been outstanding and we still have one more week to go. 

A share of the money raised will go to supporting this Terms charity, Shelter Box.

Well done to all the girls so far!

 

Y12 ‘Careers Fortnight’

ASPIREBetween 2nd-13th November, we held our first Year 12 ‘Careers Fortnight’. The aim of this fortnight was to provide Year 12 students with resources and information to help them to make a better informed choice about what they might wish to do post 18, whether it be university, an apprenticeship scheme, a Gap year or employment. Activities included a trip to Liverpool University, a workshop on the hidden job market and a visit from the Key 103 apprenticeship bus. We were delighted to welcome a number of visitors into school, who kindly volunteered their time, either conducting careers interviews with students or delivering a talk about their career and experience. Thank you to all of those who were involved in making this such a success. If you would like to get involved in or find out more about careers education, information advice and guidance at AGGS, please contact Kate Gillibrand at: gillibrand@aggs.trafford.sch.uk

Amelia’s Skating success at the Andorra International for GB

Amelia and Oliver skated brilliantly at the Andorra International for GB. They came 1st in the Free Dance and 2nd in the Pattern Dance competition giving them an overall silver place.  They also gained their personal best in overall points which will give them either 1st or 2nd ranking in GB at their level.

Well done to the both of them!

Could you host a Japanese student next term?

japanes-suitcaseIn recent years, we have successfully hosted Japanese home stay students.  We are looking forward to hosting another student from Nagoya International High School next term to help her improve her English, learn about our culture and experience English lifestyle.

We need a family who could host one of the girls for two weeks in March 2016.  This is an excellent opportunity to get to know about Japanese culture and meet a young student from a fascinating part of the world.

The Japanese student will be high achieving, responsible and independent.  A very generous weekly living allowance will be paid to the host families.

As part of the AGGS safeguarding policy, please be aware that the host family will have to undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Mr Harrison (Head of MFL)  as soon as possible by telephone on 0161 912 5912 or by email to Harrison@aggs.trafford.sch.uk
