Well done & thank you to all students and staff who took part in the Race for Life on the 18th May. You have raised a fantastic £1250.
Throughout this term, 7A1 have embarked on a journey through time with Katniss Everdeen, to a Dystonian dimension where the candidates from District 12 battle for survival, to satisfy the greedy appetites of the rich. The students of 7A1 have designed their own games to battle over, in class. Natalie Wrigley and Kelsey Riley have cleverly remastered the timeless, family fun filled game: Monopoly! Devising their own set of gaming rules, they have created a very popular game, where each student has to battle and collect points, in order to 'get out of school.' A big well done to all students in 7A1 who have produced some great games! Miss Glass

This week has seen the Academy Garden in full bloom. Staff and students came together to work on tending the garden. Crops harvested and tasted this week include gooseberries (sour!), mange tout (sweet!), mizuna lettuce (spicy!) and redcurrants (jucy!)
It was great to see a range of students in year's 7 - 10 giving up some of their lunch break to help. The garden is looking great, and the Blackpool sunshine certainly helps. Any students who want to get involved, or just come to have a look round the garden and taste some of the produce can come along to the lunchtime sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. See Mrs Law for more details.
The Grow Your Own garden club, led by Mrs Law, is supported by a local charity - Grow Blackpool. If you are interested in gardening and improving the local environment , they run a variety of garden community projects accross Blackpool.
