Mr Corbett reflected on our how successful ICC students have been this last year.
Mr Corbett begun the assembly congratulating all the students who won awards for their fantastic approach to college. He went on to speak about:
Charity work: He congratulated everyone for raising £6500.00 in the sponsored walk and how Barclays matched this figure. We raised £13,000 for good causes through the walk and how Coco's Foundation (one of charities that we are donating to) came and spoke in assemblies of the good work they do for HIV children in Central Africa. Congratulations to Kirsten Miller who alone raised £230.00 by completing the sponsored walk.
Children in Need, Christmas Jumper Day, Sports Relief all show what a kind and giving community we are at ICC.
Trips: Year 10 trip to Ypres, Students were really respectful when visiting all the sites and in particular when attending the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in 36 degrees heat! Millie Baverstock, Chloe Croaker and Cameron Licence presented a wreath of behalf of the college. Millie and Cameron wore the medals won in WW1 and WW2 by family members. Both the owner of the hostel and coach driver praised our students behaviour. Our students were a credit to our college.
STEM: Mr Corbett spoke of STEM (Science, Maths,Engineering and Technology) and what cool stuff these subjects lead too. Mr Curran went on to speak about our successful STEM activities that have run during the year from Year 7 Widening Participation involving Year 7 visiting universities. Our Year 10 students became involved in the Brightside Challange, an online Mentoring Charity. Students had to produce a media piece that will help other young people learn about their future options. Everyone who participated was awarded a certificate and Mrs Veaney who coordinated the project announced the winning team.
