Rotary Young Chef Competition 2015
Cooking up a storm!
On 27th November 10 students took part in the school heat of the Rotary Young Chef Competition. We are incredibly proud of all of our students who took part and are pleased to announce the winner as Rebecca-Lyn Adewunmi in year 10 and the runner up as Nathan Richards in year 7.
Students had to design, make and present a healthy meal for 2 people for under £7. They were judged by members of Rotary Club who were full of praise for our students:
‘I just wanted to say thank you once again to you and your pupils who were brilliant this afternoon. They did you proud. I hope they enjoyed the experience and please tell them we really were genuinely very impressed by them all and its a shame we could only take two of them to the next round’ Anna-Sophia Chapman, Rotary Club member

Visit to the Supreme Court
A group of Year 10 and 11 students visited the Supreme Court to participate in a debate day to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. After a tour of the Supreme Court, students were required to formulate arguments whilst referring to ideas and principles raised in the Magna Carta clauses as to whether in times of crisis, should principles 39 and 40 be suspended in order to protect the state. Three external lawyers provided their expertise before the debate took place. All students had the opportunity to give their arguments and it was a highly beneficial opportunity to develop their confidence, communication and public speaking skills.
Food Bank Appeal
The Food Bank Appeal was organised by Form Captains in years 8, 9 and 10.
41 boxes were donated totalling 184.3kg!
No-one should have to make the choice this winter between feeding their families and heating their homes. Unfortunately however, 83 neighbourhoods in Brent and Harrow are suffering more deprivation now than was the case just 10 years ago. We wanted to take some responsibility for our role in the fight against poverty and our way of doing this, at this time of year, was to support Harrow Food Bank. 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK – that is almost one in five of our population. Last year food banks fed over 900,000 people, including 330,000 children. Food banks are run by the community, for the community, and volunteers of all backgrounds help to run them by packing, sorting and distributing the food and other goods. Food banks are an emergency service.
Thank you to everyone who donated towards the shopping lists.
