Students are the stars of ATLP awards
More than 200 students, parents, teachers and governors came together at Sutton Coldfield’s prestigious New Hall Hotel on Tuesday 2 July to celebrate the outstanding achievements of children and young people from 13 schools.
The Arthur Terry Learning Partnership’s (ATLP) third Student Awards ceremony, which was devised by student leaders, featured prize-winners from primary and secondary schools in Coleshill, Erdington, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield and Tamworth. All children and young people were nominated by their schools and received trophies and certificates in recognition of their outstanding contribution to school and community life.
The children and young people represented Arthur Terry, Coleshill, John Willmott, Nether Stowe and Stockland Green secondaries and Brookvale, Curdworth, Hill West, Mere Green, Scotch Orchard, Slade, Two Gates and William MacGregor primaries. The awards gave them an opportunity to share their success with fellow ATLP students, headteachers, staff, governors, trustees and parents, and to enjoy afternoon tea and music.
The afternoon began with an introduction from ATLP CEO Richard Gill, who praised the collective achievements of the students.
He said: “Everybody is a winner today. You have been nominated by teachers and congratulations on being here for this favourite calendar date among schools. It is fantastic to be part of this day and to celebrate all the achievements across all partnership. We are very proud of your talents and accomplishments.”
Comperes and prize-winners Elliot Perlic, from Arthur Terry School, Charlie O’Neill from Stockland Green and Daisy Edwards from Scotch Orchard, introduced the seven award categories:
community, extra-curricular, contribution to school life, charity fundraiser, going above and beyond, creativity and special endeavour.
The ceremony was the brainchild of the ATLP’s established student leadership team – a group of children and young people from all partnership schools – who each played a key role in the event.
In his closing remarks, Mr Gill thanked governors, trustees, and schools for giving children opportunities to shine. He said: “These students are truly remarkable and their stories have inspired us all.
“Children are the heartbeat of our 13 schools. Our headteachers and staff do a wonderful job, putting children at the heart of everything they do, day in day out, across the partnership.
I’m proud and honoured to be part of this learning family. It’s wonderful to be able to share our joy and success together as we support each other on this incredible journey.”
John Vickers, chair of ATLP’s trust board, said: “This ceremony acknowledges and celebrates the many achievements of the young people within our partnership. They are our future and it is a great privilege to be here today with confidence that our future is safe in their hands.
“Our partnership is committed to the development of the whole person, with the aim of helping each individual to be the best they can be, in all the ways it takes to become a successful, clear-thinking member of society.”
CHILDREN’S UNIVERSITY GRADUATION SUMMER 2019
On Wednesday 26th June 2019, 70 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 blue and black cap and gowns, received awards in recognition of their dedication to extra-curricular learning activities. The awards were presented by Professor Carl Chin, MBE, Birmingham Community History, and Councillor Flo Nash, Mayor of Solihull. The Coleshill School had 70 Gold Award winners achieving over a 100 hours of learning activities. Students received awards ranging from Gold Undergraduate for 100 learning hours to Gold Postgraduate Awards for achieving over 800 hours. Two students received a Gold Doctorate and Gold Fellowship for 900 and 1000 hours. This year was particularly special with two dance groups performance in the awards ceremony.
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 University Grounds.”
Arriving in Style at the Year 11 Prom!
Year 11s from The Coleshill School celebrated their Prom at the Heart of England Conference Centre on Friday 28th June 2018.
Proud parents came at the start of the evening to watch the students arrive in all types of transport and an array of fantastic vehicles.
Year 11s were unrecognisable, they certainly ‘dressed to impress’ and looked stunning in their fantastic dresses and suits.
Both staff and students danced the night away and a great time was had by all.
Mr Smith-Childs, Headteacher, said: “This has been a fantastic evening. We are so proud of our Year 11s and the hard work and dedication they have put in over the past few months. It has been a pleasure teaching them and watching them develop into amazing young adults with their futures ahead of them. We wish them all good luck for the future and will see many of them in our Sixth Form in September”.
In March 2019 Year 9 students at The Coleshill School took part in a STEM Day (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The session called The Autonomous Vehicle Challenge was organised by the Smallpeice Trust. Students were challenged to create their own working vehicle using Lego Midstorm kits that could be programmed to perform a series of tasks such as following a drawn path or avoiding obstacles. The teams then had to demonstrate the abilities of their vehicle and deliver a marketing pitch to the other teams.
The winning team ‘E-FAV’ were put forward to attend the STEM Robotics Final at Lichfield Cathedral on 25th June. There they competed against seven other schools in the region to design a new autonomous vehicle, similar to a Mars Rover, and programme it to navigate its own way out of a rocky valley. In addition to their success in this challenge, the teams were also judged on their communication, teamwork and distribution of resources. Students from The Coleshill School fully embraced this challenge and successfully came second in the competition.
Nicola Duffield, STEM Coordinator for The Coleshill School commented “I could not be more proud of our students’ achievement at this event. They attacked the challenge head-on and their enthusiasm for technology and engineering has been inspiring. The opportunity to use these incredible pieces of technology in real-life scenarios has been priceless and this has opened their eyes to the world of STEM careers even further.”
As well as the competition, students also had the opportunity to talk to real engineers from local businesses, such as Jaguar Landrover, Zeiss and Rolls Royce.
