Introduction to the Charity Committee

Hi, we are the charity committee.

Our names are Zona, Asraa, Sophia, Mahjabin, Bella, Evie, Olivia, Laura and Sadie and we will be your charity committee for this year. We are all very passionate about helping others and are looking forward to organising key charity events at AGGS. Last year, the school was very successful in raising money and we hope that this coming year will be just the same!

Upcoming events include the Macmillan Coffee Morning Cake Sale and the Harvest Festival. We would really appreciate any cake donation for the cake sale on the 28th September.

We would like to encourage everyone at the school to donate to the charities that we support – even just a few pennies can make a big difference if enough people contribute. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!

Manchester University Open Days

Open Days: Sat 30 September and Sat 14 October  

You can register here.  Such visits are a great opportunity for students to explore different institutions as well as having the chance to find out more about their chosen courses.

Our work aims to support and add value to yours in providing information, advice and guidance in schools and colleges across the UK.  I would like to remind you of the opportunity for your students to join The University of Manchester Aspiring Students’ Society (UMASS). UMASS is a fantastic initiative which provides students in Year 12 and 13 with a unique insight into university life.  Students joining UMASS enjoy a range of privileges including online support via our website, podcasts, blogs and a monthly e-newsletter.  In addition, students living within traveling distance of Manchester have the opportunity to attend workshops on our campus covering topics such as writing personal statements, preparing for university interviews, taster lectures, revision sessions and one-to-one guidance sessions. Students can sign up online here.
