Leadership and Citizenship Week 2017
Year 7 and 8
As part of Citizenship and Leadership Day 2017, Year 7 and 8 students worked to empower their fellow students to take measures to make healthy and sustainable food choices. The students worked on creating a campaign toolkit – comprising of posters, commercials and applications through which they demonstrated civic leadership and active citizenship. Ideas were then pitched to a panel of judges who awarded campaigns that exemplified collaborative leadership and produced engaging, focused and well executed resources. Ideas were then presented to the Senior Leadership Team by a select group of students with a view to implementing some of the strategies in the next academic year.
As part of Citizenship and Leadership Day 2017, Year 9s worked on the theme of `Environmental Sustainability`. This was part of the `Citizenship in Action` component of their GCSE Citizenship. The learners spent the day presenting their sustainability strategies to their peers and critically evaluating the effectiveness of these initiatives.
As part of Citizenship and Leadership Days 2017, Year 10s worked on the theme `Demonstrating Citizenship and Leadership as Proud British Muslims`.
Throughout the day the learners explored different aspects of what it means to be a British Muslim, with guest speaker Dr Nasima Hassan delivering a thought provoking seminar in which she addressed key pressing questions on this topical issue. The day concluded with students presenting debates and lectures on the topic to their fellow peers.
