Finally the time has come! CHRISTMAS! We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And for those who don’t celebrate Christmas, we hope you enjoy the holidays! Let’s wish for snow this year….. 🙂
From all the Anti Bullying Ambassadors, have a lovely time away from school! 🙂
Merry Christmas dancers! We hope you have a wonderful Christmas break. We will see you again in two weeks, when it’s full steam ahead for the dance production in February!
Well done to all students and staff who have participated in the exciting, as ever, charity day today.
The frozen pantomime was fantastic, and the talent show presented by Mr Carr and Mr Barry, was brilliant and entertaining. The winners of the talent show were:
1st place: Hira who sang Valerie.
2nd place: Isabella and Evie singing Hello.
1st place: Isabella and Evie singing Hello.
2nd place: Amelia, Alice and Anouska singing ‘Not about Angels’.
We are in the process of counting the exact amount that has been raised for charity, so watch this space!
The Christmas Carol Service took place on Thursday 17th December, in the St. Mary’s church, and was lovely as usual:
Each term a pupil from Years 7-11 is chosen in each area of D&T for exceptional work:
Once again, the festive season come around and we are getting into full swing celebrating. Earlier this month, we had our annual Christmas Concert (see earlier post) and also our unique Christmas Markets.
This year we saw many creative and traditional stalls, selling items such as cakes and biscuits to jewelry and other handmade gifts. Teams and individuals set up stalls in the main hall to sell their creations.
Organised by Mrs Gerrard, the Christmas Markets offer an opportunity for girls to show off their entrepreneur skills and their creative skills. It benefits students by helping them develop teamwork skills and social skills and well as informing them more about business in a secure environment.
The Christmas Markets aren’t all about business though! 50% of the profit goes to students however 25% goes to charity and the other 25% goes back into the Enterprise Fund to help other aspiring entrepreneurs.
We are now coming to the end of the term and Christmas is approaching. More things to look forward to in the coming week:
- Carol service on Thursday 16th Dec
- Year 8,9,10 & 11 leave for the church at 10.30
- Year 7,12 & 13 leave for the church at 1.30
- Charity Day
- Each form will set up their own stall
- Talent Show
- Year 13 Pantomime
We hope to see many more interesting stalls at next year’s AGGS Christmas Markets!
