New-Bridge students kept busy

A large number of Year 8 New-Bridge Integrated College pupils and staff recently attended St George’s Market to learn about different cultures and languages at the Opportunity Europe exhibition.

Pupils observed theatre, dance and musical displays and some took part in a quiz organised by Cool FM and exhibited great enthusiasm.

Workshops were available which featured such themes as What is a European? A World of Words, British Sign Language, Know Your Products Know Your Brands.

More than 30 information stands offered the opportunity to learn about many countries. One of the pupils, Amber Morgan 8MC, successfully completed a language task in the quickest time and pupils were commended on their interaction and excellent behaviour by providers at the event. Many curriculum areas were easily identified through the focus of language such as Business, Geography and Learning for Life and Work.

The focus on Equality For All was significant and one which pupils embraced respectfully. New-Bridge pupils proved, as always, to be excellent ambassadors for their College and for integration.

Congratulations to the Year 12 students who completed their work experience week prior to half term. 

Mrs Morgan, Work Experience Co-ordinator was extremely proud of students who did an excellent job representing the College. 

Mrs Anderson was delighted: “Our students are a credit to the College. It was a privilege to read the wonderful comments from employers and we are very grateful to all the employers who accommodated our students. Our young people are excellent ambassadors and have demonstrated they possess the abilities to equip themselves in the world of work”.
