MUN Success

This weekend saw x2 AGGS delegations represented at the annual MUN High conference and Manchester High School for Girls. We had the interesting task of representing the USA and Algeria. Aside from the Trump references a great time was had by all and some very high standard of debating occurred across the board. We had some first time delegates and some very experienced delegates with us this weekend.

A huge well done to all involved, particular congratulations go to

School Council Training

On Friday 21st October the newly elected school council reps had their training session.

After Wednesday’s election this was the first time that students from each year group were able to get together and build their team working skills and explore some of the issues that school council will be focusing on this academic year.

Year groups began with the spaghetti tower challenge to help consider the different skills they may need as school council reps and to get to know one another better.

Following this challenge each year group worked on their focus. This is a task to get the school council reps started and to allow them time to gather other ideas from their own forms.
