January saw World Peace Day, and to celebrate this, year 9 made paper cranes which have now been displayed in the library. These cranes represent the wish of peace and celebrate the importance of non violence across the world. April will see World Earth appreciation day when year 9 will be growing sunflowers in their forms.

UKYP Elections

UKYP Elections

Students engaged in the democratic process this week as they voted for Trafford’s UKYP representative. Four out of five of the candidates running were AGGS students. The results will be counted next Wednesday at the Town Hall, we excitedly await the result. Good luck to Hania, Meera, Safa and Sanah.

This was an excellent way to explore the voting process with students and how a political campaign works.

Digital Surgery with Andy Burnham

Last week GCSE Citizenship students took part in a Digital Surgery with Andy Burnham. Students were able to question him about his target to end rough sleeping by 2020. They explored the topics of sustainability and how to make Manchester more environmentally friendly. Our students joined force with students from across Manchester to explore issues that affect young people. This was a fantastic opportunity to have a conversation with a high profile politician. Andy explored his journey into politics and gave our students exciting ways to get involved in politics.
