A huge thank you for the brilliant response last week!
Attached is the before and after shot of the team on Saturday.
A huge effort from every single one of them who;
a) managed to meet me on time at 6.45am! and…
b) completed the full race!
Many thanks to those people who emailed straight back with a donation amount on Friday, the Y12’s will be popping around to collect all donations in this week.
Y12 BTEC Sport students took on the Rough Renegade obstacle challenge in Lincoln to complete their studies in Unit 4, Fitness Training. They have been working hard over the last 6 weeks training each other for this event. The challenge is a 5K race with 15 obstacles along the way which you can see below.
They completed the challenge for the Charity MIND Hull & East Yorkshire if you would still like to donate to what I am sure you will agree is a very worthy cause please let us know it’s not too late.
They have to meet me here at 6.45am tomorrow morning to get to the event on time, so I think even that is grounds for sponsorship for them to be there on time! (It might be the biggest challenge of the day!!)
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.
