CHALLENGER WINS Girls Touch Rugby House Competition
Please congratulate the girls in Challenger House who won all their games in the Touch Rugby House Competition, which was organised by the Year 10 BTEC students. Their House Manager / Coach was Ryan Thorpe, with team captain Shauna Jones. There was some fantastic rugby on show from all the girls, and the BTEC students did a fantastic job in running the competition, which ran very smoothly. A special well done to the referees, Connor Cape Melbourne and Ryan Addinall.
I have attached some photos of the event and also the winning Challenger team being presented with their trophy from ex Sirius Academy students and present Hull FC players Jordan Abdull and Jansin Turget.
The full competition report will be coming tomorrow from Tori Byas, who was the Media Manager of the competition.
Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.
Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.
The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!
For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
