On Tuesday, 24th, and Wednesday 25th March 2015 Sackville School opened a stall in the canteen to raise money for the charity ‘Seizure Support Dogs’. This is a charity which helps to train dogs to be alert and to help people when having epileptic fits. They train dogs to be aware, an astounding 50 minutes before, if someone is going to have a fit- they then can make the person, or someone close by, aware of this.
On sale were a variety of delicious treats to entice the money out of our pockets! There were amazing cakes, which came in the form of: Cherry and Coconut, Marble, Cup-cakes, Chocolate Chip, Victoria Sponge and Lemon Drizzle. There was also two types of brilliant brownies, one the traditional type (just chocolate) and the other the irresistible Oreo flavour! Also on sale were: shortcakes, Swiss Rolls (chocolate and plain), cookies (chocolate fudge and oatmeal) along with the scrummy sweats which came in a bag!
Thank you to everyone who helped out and everyone who bought one of these tantalising treats as the group managed to raise – an amazing £200.45 for the formidable charity!
Year 12 geographers spent the last few days of term in Wales undertaking their fieldwork. This involved a mixture of human and physical geography, looking at de-industrialisation in Port Talbot, social welfare in Aberystwyth, changes in the Afon Ystwyth from source to estuary, sand dunes and coastal defence.
The picture shows the students enjoying a break from their studies in the magnificent setting of the bandstand in Tenby. Well done to all involved!
Thank you to the parents who took the trouble to respond to the Ofsted Parent View survey. This is what you told us.
In memory of former students Luke Power and Tom Dawes, a team of Sackville teachers led by student Lewis Power (brother of Luke) took on a team of coaches from the junior football club in Forest Row, on Friday March 20th. The players paid to play, and there was a collection bucket for spectators. More than £500 was raised to go towards a commemorative bench close to where the boys passed away in a road traffic accident last autumn.
Three Sackville teams took part in the Brighton University Great Electric Egg Race this year. Teams had to build a machine capable of propelling an egg as far as possible. The contraptions had to be completed within 90 minutes. One team built a glider to carry the egg, another constructed a boat like object. It was this that won the overall prize. Pictured you can see Ollie, Jordan and Nick with their machine, The Treen Green Mean Machine, named after their leader, Head of Design Technology, Mr Treen.
