Year 13 Pantomime:
1 in 4 local children are living in poverty.
Please help us make their Christmas Day special this year.
In 2016 we made Christmas special for over 61,800 local children, and we want to do even more this year.
Together we can make a difference to local children this Christmas.
Form 7-5 are going to be completing the ‘Reverse Advent Challenge’: Each day, during Advent, they will be asked to bring in donations for the local Food Bank.
If your child would like to donate any items, please leave them in the RS office, RM9. Mr Humphrys will collect them and send them to the Foodbank on their behalf.
Here are a list of things currently needed by the Foodbank:
Charlotte B from Year 13 , was recently confirmed to be one of the recipients of this year’s ‘Diana Award‘, recognising her voluntary work which goes above and beyond the norm. The Diana Award is awarded to courageous, caring, compassionate young people, transforming the lives of others in the name of Diana, Princess of Wales. There are only 20 recipients of this award every year, so this is a great achievement.
Charlotte has been active in the establishment and development of activities within the Jewish youth movement, buddies a child in need and also volunteers at St. Ann’s hospice and a care home.
Well done Charlotte

Wythenshawe Hospital would love to invite any of the AGGS pupils together with their families to come and join a group who sing carols on the wards on Christmas Eve in Wythenshawe Hospital. They have been very grateful for the support for them over the past few years. It is very much appreciated by patients, their families and the staff. Words and refreshments will be provided.
They meet at 6pm in the hospital chapel and will be finished by 8pm. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
