Hot Chocolate Friday
Students nominated by their Year Teams have met with Mr Roper in the return of a popular reward incentive, Hot Chocolate Fridays (or Cold Juice Friday during the Summer Term!). The Headteacher meets with students personally, in a joint meeting in his office each Friday, to find out more about how they have succeeded in embracing our school values and going the extra mile.
Allerton Grange has a policy for positive discipline which focuses on rewarding good behaviour. It is embedded into school life through stamps in planners, achievement points and reward assemblies.
Congratulations to the following students:
Maryam, Anisa and Nardus from Year 10 were nominated as they are the winners of the Aspiring Black Neuroscientists/Physiologists Competition 2022.
Their submissions were based on ‘Diversity in Science’ and they had to discuss the following:
(a) – Minorities are underserved in large scale research (genetics, clinical, epidemiological). How might this be addressed?
(b) – Discuss the lack of diversity in universities and colleges and the impact this might have on you and your peers, as you consider your future education and career options.
Mayam wrote an essay on ‘The lack of diversity in science’, and Anisa and Nardus submitted a video called ‘Acting White! What do you mean?’.
Congratulations to you all for this outstanding achievement.
We are extremely proud of all of you.
