Sponsored Walk – Money Raised Will Go To…?

As a school council we are exploring ideas with regards to what we should spend the money we get from the 2016 Sponsored Walk. We would love to have your suggestions! Here are some ideas we have already gathered to get you thinking:

  • Redoing the ledge by the library – adding a roof as shelter and more benches for lunchtimes along with pegs to hang bags
  • Developing the sound system in the hall (to stop the occasional malfunction!)

What ideas do you have?

Democracy Awards

discovering democracy

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I can share with you that AGGS has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious Discovering Democracy award. We are one of just 60 schools in the country to achieve this award. It is acknowledging the work that we do here at AGGS to engage young people in politics and democracy as a whole.

dem awards 3

Mrs. Bowyer had the great pleasure of going down to the Houses of Parliament last week to collect the award. It was here that we heard from students around the country who had contributed to their school’s achievement of this award. We also heard about the importance of engaging young people in politics from John Penrose the Minister for Constitutional Reform. A Q & A session was conducted where teachers and students could share how the government can encourage engagement in politics further.

A huge thank you to all those in school who have helped achieve this award.

U15 CRICKET

The U15 cricket team took part in the Cheshire County Indoor final after qualifying as Trafford Champions in a previous competition. The team won their section of 2 matches and then played Bramhall High School in the semi final. Bramhall proved too strong, having a number of county players on their team. However our girls put up a good fight (as you would expect them to do!!!).

Well done to Hannah Maybury and her team.
