Summer 2015

StudleadblogHello everybody,

The last couple of months have been full of hard work and achievements for the Student Leadership Team at NK. Our school Eco garden has been re-developed and will be undergoing a few final tweaks before our grand opening on Monday 13th July. During this event we will be showcasing our garden to the staff at our school so that they can see how they can use it for their lessons. We are hoping for good weather so that we can kick-start the summer with a tasty barbecue.

The Student Leadership Team took the opportunity to use their work in the garden as the emphasis for this year’s Schools’ Challenge at The Lincolnshire Show. Our entry consisted of a decorative display, portfolio and presentation. The category we entered was ‘My Community, My Commitment’ and we are very proud to announce that we were placed third out of all the secondary schools involved! We are very pleased with this achievement and the work that was put towards it. Our team has also been shortlisted for an award in the Envornmental Champion category at The Lincolnshire Education Awards 2015! We will find out on the 15th July whether we have won!

Over the past few months we have been raising money for a very poorly little girl who will be joining us in the new academic year. Her name is Sophie Robinson and she was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour. She has been very brave in battling the disease and so we wanted to help her in raising money fir her treatment and for research into the condition. So far the Student Leadership Team have raised over £100 from a cake sale. We have organised for a non-uniform fundraising charity day on the last day of this term to help raise even more! We know this money is much appreciated and you can follow her journey on her Facebook page- Sophie’s Cancer Journey.

Thank you very much for reading and, as always, remember you can keep up to date with everything via our Twitter and Facebook page!

Kind regards,

The Student Leadership team.
