Y8 Disco for Charity, Arranged by Y13 Students

Y8 Disco Organised by Y13 StudentsDuring November, a Year 8 Disco was organised by three students from Year 13 (Emily W, Khadija A and May L). After a lot of hard work and preparation, a huge £425 was raised for the charity ‘Children in Need’! The event was a great success and hopefully this will inspire more events like this in the future! Here’s to a first of many student-organised charity events in school!

AGGS vs Alderley Edge School Badminton Competition

Well done to the 16 young ladies from AGGS who took part in the badminton fixture last night vs Alderley Edge. The games were very competitive which some good rallies and the competitive atmosphere was friendly and fun.

AGGS beat Alderley Edge 5 games to 4 in round 1 and the scores were reversed in round 2 with Alderley Edge winning 5-4, making this round a tie at 9 games all. There was a great match between Anusha and Lauren ending 20-22 and  Samyu and Amy ending 21-19.

In the under 16s and under 18s age groups the results were less close with AGGS winning 18 games to 0 and 12 games to 0 with impressive performances from Maariyah in the singles beating her opponent 21-1 and Olivia and Sophie in the doubles beating  their opponents 21-4.
