Olympic Athletes visit GSA
On Monday 8th October GSA were privileged to host two Olympic athletes who came in to deliver sessions on PSHE day to all year groups.
The athletes were Double Olympian swimmer Ekaterina Avramova and Winter Olympian speed skater Kathryn Thomson.
They delivered assemblies on the importance of having a growth mindset, being resilient and overcoming setbacks/challenges. A fantastic opportunity for the students here at GSA which left many feeling inspired and motivated to go on achieve their goals.
GSA receives £1000 donation
Today a cheque for £1,000 was presented to Adrian Price, the Head Teacher from the West Brom Building Society by their Communications Manager Jim King.
The donation has been provided to support improvements for our external Quad area by the Mercian Community Trust.
The Mercian Communities Trust tackles issues of deprivation, poverty and social exclusion in the Diocese of Lichfield.
A huge thank you to the West Brom for their generous support from all the students and staff at GSA.
U14 Netball success!
On Tuesday the GSA U14 Netball team played in the Sandwell Netball competition against 16 other schools. After being undefeated in the group stages we made it through to the Quarter Finals where we beat Holly Lodge 4-0.
This brought us to the semi finals where we played Q3 Langley who were a strong team but our girls rose to the challenge and won 2-1.
Next the final.....against Sandwell Academy. [continue "Netball success" story]
£500 raised for Macmillan!
We raised an incredible £500 to donate to Macmillan Coffee Morning after the bake sale last week and a few smaller donut sales this week.
The Macmillan Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fundraising event.
As we raised £290 last year this is an amazing improvement!!
Big thanks to Siana Gardner (Year 13) who organised the events and to all that baked, ate and contributed to such a worthwhile cause.
