Springs Success

On a wet and very cold Thursday evening, Ross and Cameron battled the elements and competed in an elite field for the chance to go to the South Yorkshire Championships.

Cameron took part in the Shot competition and came 4th, not quite enough to get him through. He then competed in the Javelin in which he came second and gained a place at South Yorkshires.

Ross was competing in Triple Jump where he jumped a personal best 11.85 and came first also securing a place at the South Yorkshires.

Well done!

"Is It Worth It?"

Amelix Youth Projects brought their South Yorkshire Police  commissioned  “Is It Worth It?” school tour to the Academy on Wednesday 9th April to deliver targeted messages through music, to our Year 7 to Year 10 students.

The “Is It Worth It?” school tour is an exciting sound and light experience which consists of a mix of of interactive games, dance, musical performances, and information.  It promotes key messages to help reduce antisocial behaviour and alert young people to a range of dangers, including drug misuse, alcohol, and using the internet and social media. 

The tour has already been successful in Kent, Sussex, Merseyside and has now been extended to Yorkshire.

Students took part in an interactive quiz and performers included Brett Davison, aka Tone, who appeared on BBC1s The Voice.

Feedback from students was extremely positive.

Springs Success for Y7!

Last night the netball team played a friendly against Park.  This also gave the opportunity for others to come and play their first games.  The Netball team played the 1st and 4th quarter and this was a win and a draw respectively. The other girls came on to play in the 2nd and 3rd quarter and in their first game were a little nervous but played some fantastic netball supported by the rest of the team.  Please congratulate them all and we look forward to taking this success into Y8 and hopefully having more success in the leagues and hopefully some tournaments. Georgia Evans was voted player of the game by Park.

Hot..Hot..Hot..!

 

 

Year 7 students have stunned their Springboard teachers and classmates with models of the tectonic hazard that currently threatens many people and places globally.  Inspiration has been sought from studying the ancient Vesuvius eruption (Pompeii) in 79 A.D.  Entries to the class level competition have been varied, creative and really shown off both group collaboration and independent thinking skills.  We have even seen smoke bellowing out of some and lava out of others.  The more technological entries have used game console games to create computerised eruptions (set in  Roman times).  Students have judged their fellow class mates on the following criteria; accuracy, creativity and geographical explanation.  A £10 Meadowhall voucher will be awarded to winners!

Get on your bike....for Sports Relief!

A group of year 8 students, led by Amber Cheetham, organised and successfully completed a 10 mile sponsored bike ride around Rother Valley on Monday 24th March.  Together they accumulated a respectable £177.  The group: Amber Cheetham, Bethany Howard, Bailey Bedford and Jordan Holdsworth, had a beautiful day to enjoy their bike ride and any cool breeze was soon forgotten in their efforts to complete the course. They have certainly earned the right to brag about any sore limbs!  Thanks also go to Craig Malkin; without his help the bike ride would not have been possible.

As a whole, the Academy have raised a satisfactory £479, this has been a combined effort from all students from year 7 to 6th form. Activities on the day included: cake sales, tug-of-war competition, penalty shoot-outs, sponsored silence and even students going around with a bucket for loose change.

Well done and thank you to all students and staff involved in this successful fundraising event.
