Children's University Graduation Ceremony Summer 2018
On Friday 8th June 2018, 50 students from The Coleshill School took part in the Children’s University Graduation ceremony at Birmingham University.
Parents proudly watched as their children, dressed in Red and black cap and gowns, students received awards in recognition of their dedication to extra-curricular activities. The awards were presented by Professor Carl Chin, MBE, Birmingham Community History, and Councillor Flo Nash, Mayor of Solihull. The Coleshill School had 50 Gold Award winners achieving over a 100 hours of learning activities. Three Year 8 students achieved over 750 hours.
The Children’s University Trust provides 7 to 14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside school hours. The passport to learning has been created where students collect stamps for hours of accredited learning which contribute to the award of a certificate.
Miss Blunt, Enrichment and Children's University coordinator commented “It was a fabulous event in a beautiful setting and we were all inspired by the ceremony and guest speakers, and Professor Carl Chinn. We are so proud of our students and what they have achieved. The only challenge was re-locating their caps after they were all thrown in the air in celebration on the Aston Webb steps.”

SPEAKERS TRUST FINAL
A team of Year 10 students from The Coleshill School have recently taken part in the Speakers Trust competition.
Speakers Trust is the UK’s leading public speaking and communication skills training charity whose vision is for young people to be able to speak confidently and to be heard through the power of communication.
On Thursday 6th June, Year 10 students took part in the finals of the Speakers Trust competition at Birmingham Univeristy. Following an inspirational speech by Tyler, he came third out of 18.
Jo Trude-Smith, Teacher of PE commented “Tyler’s speech brought me and his Dad to tears. He was confident and really connected with the audience and even got some laughts. To say he did the school proud is an understatement, he was an absolute joy to watch.”
Ian Smith-Childs, Headteacher, commented: “What an inspirational young man, we are so proud of him. The whole Speakers Trust experience has helped to build the confidence of the year group.”
