Sports Leadership Academy – Infant Agility
Thursday 28th March 16 Year 10 sports leaders went to North Solihull Sports Centre to work with 12 Primary Schools in the area running a level 2 infant agility competition for year 1 and 2 students. The Year 10 students led the events with 7 stations of activities, ranging from chest throw, standing long jump, javelin throw, speed steps and bean bag throwing.
They supported Primary School leaders who also helped at the stations. They worked together at each station to record results and ensure everybody had fun. Over 240 Primary school’s students took part in the morning and afternoon events. The year 10 students demonstrated excellent SPIRT skills demonstrating independence and self-management throughout the event, they worked together as a team to ensure the event ran smoothly.
A Massive well done the Year 10 leaders who stepped up to the challenge encouraging and supporting Primary school students, it was a great day out and it’s great to see the confidence develop in the leaders.
A huge congratulations to our Year 10 Young Enterprise team, Bloom Shoes, for winning the Coventry, Central & North Warwickshire Showcase on 21st March 2019 at IBM Warwick!
As well as the Best Customer Service Award!
They will now be moving on to the County Finals stage in May!
Young Entrepreneurs Bloom Shoes Success!
Since November 2018, fifteen Year 10 students from The Coleshill School have been taking part in the Young Enterprise Company Programme.
The 15 students had to work together to set up their own fully-functioning business to design, manufacture, promote and sell a product of their choice. After designating their own Board of Directors, Bloom Shoes was born, and since then the team have been hand-painting bespoke, customised canvas shoes and accessory bags.
In March, Bloom set up a stall at the YE trade fair in the Royal Priors Shopping Centre in Leamington Spa to sell their products to the public. Not only did they have a fantastic day of sales, but the team were also judged by Young Enterprise on their stall presentation, product, customer service and marketing techniques. These results then carried through to the Coventry, Central & North Warwickshire Showcase, held on 21st March at IBM in Warwick competing against 8 other schools. For this, the team were required to produce a full Company Report based on their experience over the last few months and then deliver a presentation to the judges and other teams in the local area.
Miss Duffield, Teacher of Science commented “Our students were impeccable at the IBM event, demonstrating their confidence, charisma and professionalism at every stage. The hard work over the last six months came together and Bloom Shoes were awarded Winners of the Showcase, as well as taking away the Award for Best Customer Service from their performance at the trade fair. These students now move into the next phase of the competition and will be competing in the County Final on 8th May 2019. We are so proud of them.”
DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD EVENING
On Tuesday 19th March 2019, The Coleshill School held a celebration evening for students who completed their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and their famililes.
In total 48 students received their Bronze Award which involved completing a 2 day expedition on foot and their Voluntary, Physical and Skill sections for an hour a week for between 3 and 6 months where they learnt new skills that will enhance their CVs and university applications.
Mr Duggan, Duke of Edinburgh Co-ordinator, commented “Our students embarked on numerous activities including football coaching, litter picking, cooking and music, including activities that they hadn’t taken part in previously. Each student worked incredibly hard and for some it was their first experience of sleeping in a tent. As such it is wonderful that so many participants have managed to complete their awards.”
