On Wednesday 3rd July we are asking Academy staff and students to wear an item of green and make a suggested donation of £1 to support the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
By donning our greenery, we will help bring a little thrill and excitement to the wards by providing their young patients with access to Magic Makers. Magic Makers are specialist children’s entertainers who create an environment of fun and laughter, and provide patients with a distraction from the stressful and sometimes painful treatments and procedures they may face during their time in hospital.
If you would like to take part, you may wear a green item in addition to your usual school uniform – no trainers or face paint please. Please hand your donation to your form tutor during registration.
This activity is completely voluntary, although it would be great if as many staff and students as possible are able to take part!
Next week we are celebrating the Cricket World Cup in the Dining Room with a delicious menu themed around each match. As well as these delicious new tastes, we will have our usual steamy jacket potatoes, homemade pasta pots and selection of sandwiches and paninis.
If you are interested in finding out about how to forge a career in games design, come along to the Aspire to Be carers session tomorrow. All students in Year 7, 9 and 11 welcome, the session is held over the early lunch break (12.15pm – 12.45pm) and will be in T12. A sandwich and drink will be provided.
