For those of you that are unaware April 22nd is ‘Earth Day’ (http://www.earthday.org/) and to celebrate this NASA are promoting their own Global Selfie Day (http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/globalselfie/ ). Here at Outwood Academy Adwick we like to pride ourselves in embracing and promoting the wonderful and diverse world which exists beyond our boundaries, therefore we would encourage you all to support these two events and to share your experience with us. Wherever you are, whoever you are with or whatever you are doing on 22nd April we would like you to share it with us. You might be helping someone in their garden, enjoying a day out in the countryside or be exploring some far off, distant land – please share it with us. Simply take a selfie and Tweet it to us @GMacedemic, @outwoodadwick or @OAALEARN using the hashtag #OAAfarandwide. Or, if you aren’t a Tweeter, then please email it to us G.Maconachie@adwick.outwood.com with the subject title OAA Far and Wide. We are really looking forward to seeing just how far Outwood Academy Adwick students, parents, carers, followers, ex-students and more besides are spread around the world on Earth Day, 22nd April 2014. There may even be a special reward for the most spectacular location/activity. Thank you for your terrific support and unbounded enthusiasm in and around our Academy and have a great Easter break. Hopefully this will become a regular event with different departments providing the theme.
South Yorkshire Police has a corporate Volunteer Cadet Scheme that involves young people between the ages of 15 and 18 years of age. The overarching aim of the scheme is to: - Give responsible, civic minded young people a positive experience with South Yorkshire Police. - Develop positive relationships with the next generation of adults. - Provide young people with an opportunity to develop themselves within an established framework based around law and the police. - Encourage young people to act as peer role models as they represent the South Yorkshire Police Volunteer Cadet Scheme. The Cadets meet once a week for 2 hours and learn about a range of policing topics including Police Powers and Acts, Licensing, Drugs, Firearms, Road Traffic Offenses, Crime and Assaults. As well as this, we hold sessions relating to personal safety, emergency first aid, presentation skills and interactive scenario role-play.
Outwood Academy Adwick was delighted to host inter academy varsity games with Outwood Academies Foxhills, Portland and the home team Adwick after school on Wednesday 2nd April. The varsity games consisted of basketball, football and tough mudder events and the overall winners were Outwood Academy Portland - well done! Thanks must go to all the participants, the staff from all three schools and the students from Outwood Academy Adwick who supported the event. Mrs Blundell was thrilled to present the trophy to students from Outwood Academy Portland and we hope that this will be the first of many inter academy sporting events.
