Year 13 Pantomime:

Manchester Indoor Rowing Competition

On 12th December AGGS took 21 teams (84 participants) to the Manchester indoor rowing competition. All girls competed well and were by far the best in Trafford with each year group taking first place out of the Trafford schools. GO US!

The results were then compared with the Stockport and Manchester schools to see who was the over all winners.

In Year 7
Emma C, Yasmine I, Megan B and Olivia B came 2nd over all.

In year 8
Kirsten M, Selin C, Jemima H and Georgia H came 3rd over all.

In year 9
Alicia M, Beth H, Neave B and Charlotte Lord Came 1st over all.

In year 10
Ellie F, Milan W, Dani G and Millie P came 1st overall.

This means the year 9 and 10 team will be representing Greater Manchester in the next round in February.

Well done to all who entered.

Christmas Enterprise Markets

AGGS Christmas Markets, December 2017

The Y7, Y8 and Y9 Christmas Enterprise markets were as successful and as busy as ever this year. We had a variety of creative stalls selling; mobile phone cases, mini knitted hats, pot-pourri and homemade Christmas candles and gifts as well as nicely gift wrapped biscuits and sweets. Congratulations to all the students who took part, you all worked very hard to produce some amazing, original and good quality products. The winner for the best group and displaying the most entrepreneurial skills will be announced after Christmas.

Christmas Is On Its Way!

We are coming close to the end of half term and many Christmas festivities have begun!

AGGS’ Christmas Concert this year was a success; showcasing a range of talented students (over 260 in total). Performances included:  Howard Blake’s ‘The Snowman’, sung by the Junior Choir and  ‘Feeling Good’ performed by the String Orchestra. The halls were packed this year and the exciting atmosphere of Christmas was captured during the concert. Well done to all students who participated in this year’s amazing concert and to the staff who made the night memorable and festive!

Also, this year’s Christmas Enterprise Markets were held at lunchtimes and the main hall was buzzing with staff and students purchasing Christmas gifts and goodies. The stalls were run by Year 7, 8 and 9 students and their creativeness was on display at the market. Congratulations to the students who gave it their all and sold their socks off!

This Friday, AGGS will be hosting another amazing talent show and the Year 13s will be showcasing their pantomime which they have been working extremely hard on. Charity day will also feature stalls in the dining room so come along and visit the many activities, games and food on offer!

We hope you  have a fabulous Christmas/ holidays! Everyone deserves a break to relax 🙂

Reflections and New Beginnings

Ah December, the month of festivities and family. 2017 is coming to a close (finally, what a great year) and as T.S. Eliot once said:

“for last year’s words belong to last year’s language, and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

So, that brings us to the theme of this issue – Reflections and New Beginnings. We thought it would be fitting considering this is the debut of our magazine, The Green Light.

This issue features works submitted by various members of our school, so stay tuned!
