Community Projects Round-Up The White Ribbon Campaign: ‘These Hands Are Not For Hurting’ Mural You will recall that in December we played our part in creating a giant mural of colourful handprints entitled ‘These Hands Are Not For Hurting’, in support of the anti-domestic violence charity called The White Ribbon Campaign. We collected an amazing 240 individual handprints from students (and a few staff) and our visitors left very impressed by levels of enthusiasm and curiosity about the campaign. The mural – assembled from schools across the ContinU Trust partnership and local government offices - has now been finished and will soon be displayed to the public in the new ‘Academy/Piano Building’ in Kidderminster, courtesy of Birmingham Metropolitan College. The banner will be on show for a couple of weeks, so if you are shopping in Kidderminster – check it out!

Fairtrade: Our Yr 12 Fairtrade Enrichment steering group (Sam Boddy, Sam Donaldson, Andrew Bache,

Rebecca Davey, Dan Everard, Lois Boswell) have been working steadily in their Tuesday sessions towards preparations for Fairtrade fortnight – and beyond. · We invited and played host to Mrs Alison Burton, leader of Wyre Forest Fairtrade group and discussed our activities and exchanged ideas for the future. · We have been liaising with Ms. Mugnier, lead on Fairtrade at Hagley Catholic High School,

over ways to mark Fairtrade fortnight and we are finalising plans for a friendly Fairtrade football match between ourselves and Hagley CHS and also a year 7 and 8 Fairtrade bake-off! Watch this space. · We have just about finished making a series of short film interviews on the subject of Fairtrade – our interviewers have been busy! All will be revealed in KS4 and KS3 assemblies in late Feb/early March. Why not visit the brilliant Fairtrade websites for further info www.fairtrade.org.uk - or visit the Fairtrade page on Frog to tell us what you’re doing and share your ideas! Human Rights Assembly – Yr 9GS After being affected by snow, Miss Sutton’s Yr9 group finally got to deliver their Human Rights Assembly and very good it was too! The whole group took part, addressing each of the 30 Universally Declared Human Rights, speaking and delivering a really clear and impactful Power-point. This assembly tied in with another last term, so the human rights message is really keeping its profile in school. Worcestershire Youth Cabinet Elections Feb 2013 Students acropss KS3 and KS4 took part in the Worcestershire Youth Cabinet Elections this month – more than 400 votes were cast, which is a marked percentage improvement on the national adult election turnout! Four students: Max and Ross Hart, ZulKifl Chaudry and Jordan Billingham have stood for election and results will be known early March. Whether they are successful or not on this occasion we are proud of them for their motivation, their sense of citizenship and their desire to put their ideas into action on behalf of other young people. Fingers crossed!

I would like to begin this piece by extending my very sincere thanks to parents/carers and students for their support and understanding during the snowy conditions. As always the site team and staff were magnificent in ensuring that the site was safe and that lessons continued as normal throughout and the students conducted themselves in a very safe and helpful manner which ensured that despite the difficulties with the weather we had a very purposeful learning week in which all external examinations were conducted as normal. I do get requests for absences from school during term time and invariably (except in exceptional circumstances) have to record these as unauthorised. The following statistics which some schools share with their students clearly show the dramatic impact that poor attendance in term time can have on achievement and I hope helps to explain my lack of flexibility in this area and why we strive so hard to exceed all our attendance targets.

FASHION SHOW TRIP

A superb evening was enjoyed by GCSE Textile Technology students at Redditch Town Hall in December. The catwalk buzzed with amazing collections of unique and contempory designs. Students were inspired by featured collections of millinery, corsetry, tailoring, bridalwear, lingerie, patchwork, quilting, feltwork, vintage and theatre costumes. There was also an opportunity to purchase bespoke handmade gifts of jewellery, cakes, and accessories from local designers and suppliers.

Public speaking competition RIBI Youth Speaks is an international competition organised by the Rotary Club that takes place every year, with the aim that students between the ages of 11 to 18 can practise and develop their public speaking and presentation skills. This year the Stourbridge division was held at Old Swinford Hospital School on the 24th January, where we had to compete against teams from both Old Swinford Hospital School and Redhill High School on the topic of Peace. There were two teams competing on behalf of Haybridge. The intermediate team was represented by three Key Stage 3 students- Jasdeep Mahal who was the chairperson, Saffron Rennison who took the role of the main speaker and Tom Fell who gave the vote of thanks. Emily Jordan in Year 12 also devoted a lot of her time in the weeks leading up to the competition to help the team prepare. The senior team was composed of Simi Manik in Year 12 as the chairperson, Rebecca Fenton also in Year 12 as the main speaker, and Matt Jones in Year 10 who gave the vote of thanks. The senior team took first place in the senior category of the competition, so we will go on to compete in the district round, which is being held at Queen Elizabeth School in Atherstone on Saturday 9th March. I would like to take this opportunity to give a massive thank you to Mr Findlay, for his continued help and support when preparing for the competition. Rebecca Fenton Year 12

P O E T RY LI V E This year, we were given the opportunity to see some of the poets whose work we are studying for English Literature at ‘Poetry Live!’ in Birmingham. The poets all read a selection of their work, talked about each poem and explained the messages or stories behind them, then took questions from the audience. It was really interesting to hear the poems the way the poet intended them to be read, as they can sometimes lose some of their poignancy or emotion without the poet’s delivery. This was especially true of the poets that used things like stress on accents and different languages or even hand gestures, such as John Agard, Imtiaz Dharker and Grace Nichols. John Argard and his wife Grace Nichols both use Caribbean influences, from the Creole language mixed with Standard English, to the rhythms and some musical qualities of Calypso. This made it a different kind of poetry, one that really comes alive when performed – it also meant we were able to listen to their musical Guyanan accents for about an hour, which is never a bad thing. Imtiaz Dharker’s poem ‘Dabba’s dialogue’, or ‘Tiffin Box Talks’, is another example as she used hand movements and a different voice to bring out the character of the Tiffin box. This poem was really interesting and fun, as it followed the journey of a Tiffin box from its perspective and was read with real excitement and wild hand movements. I really enjoyed these poems and the

way they were performed, as, even with the serious messages, they were easy to listen to and, with John Agard, a bit like listening to music with the rhythms and difference in pitch. Simon Armitage and John Agard were the most enjoyable, as their poems were more accessible from a teenager’s perspective. With Simon’s poem ‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful’, I think people listened more than they had before as the language and structure used weren’t complex and in his long list of different groups of people, many found one they related to. Combined with his dry sense of humour and life long ambition of being a bus driver, he was probably one of the audience’s favourites too. There was also a talk by an examiner about how to answer the questions in our exam, which was interesting and had some helpful advice about never ever mentioning the ‘power of three’ and always finding your own points because they’re always better than anyone else’s. Overall, it was an interesting day with lots to consider, but I think most of the people I spoke to came away with a new perspective on poetry and a new found love of John Agard. Joya Mahay Year 11

SIXTH FORM POTENTIAL ENGINEERS visit Millennium Point, Birmingham

Through our enrichment and masterclass programme, a group of Year 12 students interested in Engineering had the exciting opportunity to attend a one-off lecture day at Millennium Point at Birmingham – home to the huge IMAX theatre and Birmingham Think Tank. During

Sixth Form News

the day we heard about the experiences of world renowned engineers who worked with Formula One teams such as Ferrari, McLaren and Renault. We were particularly interested to hear from Joseph Katz, a leading aerospace engineer who explained the science behind Formula One aerodynamics. A highlight of the day (apart from the free pizza lunch!), was when one of the lecturers produced a Formula One steering wheel – one that had been used in a real Formula One

race. We were all impressed enough until he revealed that it had been used by the one and only…Ayrton Senna! and for anyone unfamiliar with this name, in my eyes he is considered to be the greatest Formula One driver of all time. Once the lectures were completed the benefits of the day continued. We were offered free tickets to the Thinktank experience - naturally we took these gratefully and spent the end of the afternoon exploring the impressive exhibits throughout Thinktank - copious

numbers of old automotive vehicles,

many stuffed animals from across the globe and their

impressive planetarium. We have to admit it was the best master class we’ve been on so far and thank you to Birmingham City University for giving us this experience - they certainly know how to impress. Harvey Jones Year 12 student PS. We are following up this masterclass with a second session presented by the design engineers! More info to come!

Sophie Brown: an inspiration

Sophie Brown, a member of our Sixth Form has been named regional winner for the West Midlands in the Best Young Volunteer category of the vInspired National Awards, which celebrate the achievements and dedication of young volunteers.Sophie, of Kidderminster, who volunteers at a retirement home in the town, is hoping her nomination will inspire other young people to give up their spare time to help others. She began visiting the home while volunteering as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme but decided to continue after striking up a friendship with one of the residents. She also volunteers at the Blue Cross animal charity. Sophie said: “It’s such an honour to be presented with this award. You don’t volunteer to get awards – knowing you’re helping people is enough motivation but it’s great to know that people appreciate what I do and I hope that this might inspire other young people to give volunteering a go.”

Callum Hill has been offered a place to study Psychological and Behaviourial Sciences at Corpus Christi College Cambridge


Year 12 Information Evening; Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Veterinary Science and Law This Sixth Form event gave parents/carers and students the opportunity to speak directly to professionals and academics regarding above fields. The evening was very well attended and students were made aware of the specific details they need to consider when applying to either Oxford or Cambridge. As well as academics attending the event, we were fortunate to have Irwin Mitchell Solicitors attend to give students a professional’s view and their expert advice in pursuing a career in Law. The University of Birmingham were also represented at the event, giving presentations on Law and Medicine applications.

In addition to these presentations, supporting documents were also available for students to take with them, giving comprehensive information and important specific deadlines for application deadlines. These documents are still available to collect from the Sixth Form Centre. Please do speak to a member of the Sixth Form if you require these booklets or any further information.

Feeling the love? On Thursday the 14 of February, Valentine’s Day the Sixth Form held a cake and cookie sale to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Leading up to the event members of the Sixth Form baked their own delicious biscuits and brought them in to sell to students and staff. Our reputation for good cookies meant we had many advanced orders from the Sixth Form team. The event was held in the quad and the cookies went down a storm. Valentine’s Day was first associated with romantic love in the middle ages. By the 15th century it evolved into an occasion in which lovers express their love for each other by buying gifts such as roses and chocolates and presenting them with cards. What better reason could we have for giving to charity? Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped us. th

Piracy in Somalia On Wednesday the 6 of February I was given the th

fantastic opportunity to attend a master class at Aston University on the topic of ‘Piracy in Somalia’. I thoroughly enjoyed the session where we discussed how the on-going piracy off the coast of Somalia has affected global shipping services, the impact of recent terrorist attacks such as 9/11 and other global security threats have had on reducing the amount security at sea over recent years, therefore allowing the rise of piracy on such a large scale, along with how piracy is actually a common occurrence in coastal locations globally, not just the east coast of Africa. We also considered the ways in which this type of criminal activity could be prevented, and the reasons behind its cause. My next masterclass is studying ‘Politics & International Relations - Immigration in Western Europe’. A very topical and ‘political hot potato’ at the moment! My aim is to study International Relations at University and these masterclasses, and other workshops and conferences I have attended, have given me an insight and vital starting point for researching courses at university over the coming months. Elise Williams

Sixth Form News

Former Haybridge Sixth Form Students, Jenny Hanks and Caroline Hazel who are currently studying Medicine at the University of Birmingham attended the evening to advise our potential Medicine students. Students also had the opportunity to discuss Veterinary Science applications with a representative from the Royal Veterinary College.

HOUSE

The House system has again been disrupted by the inclement weather of recent weeks. However the basketball competitions were extremely competitive with almost 60 students attending the Year 7/8 evening and a similar number the Year 9/10 tournament. High-scoring MacArthur dominated the Year 7/8 competition, winning all their group matches and overcoming Austen 6-0 in the final. The Year 9/10 competition saw victory for Nightingale over Austen. Thanks to Simon Robson (Year 12) for his help with organising the events. The History department ran two competitions for Key Stages 3 and 4. After an afternoon of questions and answers Redgrave claimed top points in Key Stage 3 followed by Austen, Elgar, Nightingale and MacArthur (joint 4th) and Churchill. The Key Stage 4 result saw MacArthur top with Elgar and Austen joint 2nd, Churchill, Redgrave and Nightingale following up. Thanks to Mr Whiley and his team. Current scores are correct as of Friday 15th February: Churchill 291 MacArthur 254 Redgrave 249 Austen 247 Elgar 242 Nightingale 218 Next half term hosts the badminton and DT competitions.

PE NEWS NETBALL

2012-13 was a difficult year for the year 7 and 8 Haybridge netball teams. If you look at the results however, with almost 25 year 7 and 8 students regularly attending netball training I believe they had a great season! Leaving their best performance till last and convincingly beating Bewdley the girls demonstrated their never give up attitude! There were some superb individual performances over the season. For the Year 7’s Izzy Knight, Lizzy James and Pheobe Sutton all received numerous nominations for the Player of the Match award. Dependable strength in defence also provided them with a huge advantage. Well done Lucie Smith and Frankie Harrison-Smith. The Year 8 team struggled for numbers at times but with a committed core group of players the team were also successful in their final game. Captained by Nicole Foulkes and with a number of Player of the Match nominations for Rose Winn and Lucy Robson the team truly deserved the win against Bewdley. It was great to see everyone so happy with the result! A massive congratulations to the girls. I hope you’re all looking forward to next season already!

POPPY HUGHES, YEAR 10 HAS TRIALS FOR ENGLAND

Before Christmas I took part in a football trial for England U15s. Roughly 80 girls trialled from the North of England and presumably around the same number from the South. In January, I received confirmation that I was through to the second stage of trials along with about 25 other girls including North and South selections, which will be held on the 19th February. If I am successful on the day, my first game is scheduled to take place in Dublin, shortly followed by a fixture in Glasgow. I am also playing for Worcestershire County U16’s along with Sarah Adamson pictured below and we are having a very positive season so far.

London School of Economics visits Haybridge

Potential Sixth Form students from Haybridge and our feeder schools, with current Year 12 students, spent the morning of 7th February learning about study at the London School of Economics when James Brown from the LSE Student Recruitment Office visited us. He outlined the entry requirements and courses available at LSE and took students’ questions about studying in central London. Did you know …? According to the Complete University Guide 2013, the LSE is ranked just below Cambridge! And they are the best ranked university for social sciences research. Their Alumni include 16 Nobel Prizewinners – and also names like Stelios, Cherie Blair, Shami Chakrabarti and of course Mick Jagger (who actually only completed 2 years of his degree course!) London School of Economics

12

They have attracted recent public lectures from Aung Sun Suu Kyi, Bill Gates and the Dalai Lama and you can watch pod casts of all their lectures online…( http://www2.lse.ac.uk/ newsAndMedia/videoAndAudio/channels/publicLecturesAndEvents/latest100.aspx?top=100) The London School of Economics is located right in the centre of London – close to St Paul’s Cathedral - and all their student accommodation is quite close by – about a 10-15 minute walk away. So if you are looking for the ‘buzz’ and ‘vibe’ of the capital, you would be right at the heart of it. They attract students from across the world which makes for an exciting learning environment and they have their own Language Centre available to all their students where you can study anything from Arabic to Portuguese as part of your degree, or just out of interest. Their fees are slightly lower than many other top universities - £8,500 per year and their accommodation ranges from £150 – £250 per week which is pretty competitive for London. They offer attractive bursaries and scholarships too. They say they are a very traditional but dynamic university and although we generally think of them as the University for Economics and Political Science, they offer a wide range of social science subjects. A typical offer from the LSE is A*AA for Economics through to ABB for some of their social sciences courses. They usually get about 16,000 applications and can offer only 1,300 places. So competition is fierce – but James Brown wanted students to know that the LSE is open to high achieving students with ambition from all walks of life and from all backgrounds – whether you come from a semi rural environment like Hagley (as he did) or you have grown up in the big city, if you can show yourself to be dynamic and passionate about your subject and someone with interesting views and opinions they will consider you…. If you are interested you can book a place at their next Open Day on 26 March 2013 Register online: lse.ac.uk/meetLSE
