Amazing News from last years Impact Projects
Last year Molly, Romane and Tessa made a short film to enter the Young Reporters of the Environment “Litter Less” competition. They used Impact Project time to research the issues and to create the film. They had many hurdles and showed true grit and determination. The girls were not happy with just OK they wanted the best edited film they could and so they spent about 6hrs together on the last weekend editing and re-editing until they could do no more.
We found out last year that they won the national competition. This resulted in some prizes one of which was to be entered into the international competition. Students from all over the world entered and last week we found out that the girls came 1st in the international completion. An absolutely amazing achievement and one which I for one am truly amazed by. I know they worked so hard and so being recognised in this way is fantastic. Their passion for the environment and especially the stopping of single use plastics is contagious and hopefully they can encourage more people through this film.
For those of you who have not seen the film you can view it by using the following link.

Impact Projects – How to support your child
All students will be working towards big goals by breaking it down each week into smaller goals. Parents can be a great help if they have conversations about what is happening. Questions parents could ask might include, “what do you need to get done this week?” “are you stuck on anything?” “what exactly do you have to do?”
Lately we have had a few coats go missing and I suspect they are going home with the wrong children by accident. So many of the coats look the same. At the moment we have a missing black puffer jacket. It would be great if all parents could take a quick look and make sure their child has the right coat and not someone else’s.
