Year 9 First Give Final

First Give Final 2018

Last week saw the culmination of three months hard work on behalf of year 9 and their First Give project. The project has engaged year 9 with local social issues and charities that work to alleviate these issues. Each class had selected one group to represent them in the final. The presentations were fantastic and very creative exploring social issues such as mental health, domestic abuse and loneliness among old people.

The winning team were Manchester Mind gaining £500 for their charity.

All of year 9 should be very proud of their awareness raising and fundraising efforts, they have truly embodied what it means to be active citizens via this year’s project.

What have you been up to? – politics peer teaching

Girls in year 9 have been helping year 8 pupils learn more about Politics. Here at AGGS we have a spiral curriculum whereby students build on their learning every year and we especially do this with politics. Political education and engagement is important here at AGGS.

To help year 8s get their heads around all the political figures and processes year 9 created games to showcase what they had learnt about politics and help the year 8 pupils learn themselves.

Here are just some of the creative and fantastic games that were made:
