YEAR 11 SHINE CONFERENCE

A group of our Year 11 girls visited University of York Friday 1st December. The girls who attended have some high aspirations to work in roles such as a forensic psychologist, police officer, surgeon, social worker and nurse. They found the day informative as they learned about choosing A Levels, applying to university and budgeting at university. The day also involved a study skills ‘BrainBox’ session and a celebration of their time on the Shine programme. They were all worn out when we arrived back at 6.30pm but they had found it extremely useful too!

Many Thanks to all those who supported our students at the event.

For the first  time in a long time I was able to field a strong yet unproven Year 7 netball team! These girls showed strength of character against a challenging opposition.
First quarter 0-2 down, second quarter we brought it to 2-3..... game on?!
The girls lost 2-4 however it was their first game and they took a huge amount from it. Well done girls !

Wear Blue for Bullying UK

posted 6 Nov 2017, 02:18 by Web Admin

On Friday 10/11/17, Hillsview Academy students and staff can show their support of Anti Bullying Week (w/c 13th November) by paying 50p (or more!) to wear something blue.
This can be a hoody, t shirt, jumper, football top, tracksuit top etc.
The money raised will go to Bullying Uk, a charity for those who have, or are being affected by bullying. The money will go towards paying for counselling and for somebody to be at the other end of the phone line.

I'm sure you will agree that this is a very worthy cause, we can show our zero tolerance to bullying and raise awareness a the same time.

There are some interesting resources on their website too, if you want to discuss this further in form time.

Please make sure that this is BLUE TOP ONLY and NOT a non uniform day. If we are going to support this cause, we need to do it the right way!

On Tuesday 31st October , all Year 9 and Year 10 students who study Design and Technology took part in a two-hour STEM session with a visiting engineering company called ECITB.  Students worked in groups of four on a 'Power Race Day' activity where they had to test various impellers and establish which was the most effective in gaining the specified motion.  Students were enthusiastic and very competitive!
