Wellbeing Room quote series

Our next quote was chosen by 9-6 for our new well being room wall…

CSE Play

On Monday 26th June year 9 were off timetable to watch a drama production of a play about CSE. Child Sexual Exploitation is an important topic and one that we are exploring in Citizenship & PSHE at the moment via the Real Love Rocks module from Barnardos. The play was very powerful and students had a chance to hot seat the characters at the end.

All the actors were students themselves and the story was based on real life events.

It’s what’s inside that counts..

Welcome to our new series of quotes that will be up in the newly refurbished well being room come September.

Year 9 First Give Winners

First Give Final, 42 Street, 2017

We are so pleased to announce that this year’s 9 charity project was won by students in 9-3 and the charity was 42nd Street. Karina from 42nd was in the audience as the winners were announced and she was so pleased and proud of the students and their hard work.

This year AGGS has been the first school outside of London and Wales to participate in the First Give programme. We have run a similar programme every year for 5 years which as seen a huge amount of money go to some amazing worthwhile causes across Manchester.

The whole of year 9 work on a creative presentation and we do a form time semi final round in which one group per form is chosen by their peers to present at the grand final. This year’s grand final was judged by the director of First Give, Ms Gill and a member of the school PTA. Everyone was astounded at the high standard of all of the presentations. The 9-3 group stood out for it’s incredible video tackling issues of mental health.

42nd is a Manchester based charity working tirelessly to help young people deal with the complexities of modern life ranging from drug abuse to mental health. We and First Give are very pleased to award a total of £700 to this incredible charity. We hope all the students in year 9 continue their efforts to raising awareness and money for so many worthy causes.
