Aylward Academy Charity Week

The Citizenship Department with the help of 6th Form volunteers coordinated a week of activities which aimed to build positive relationships and remove barriers between students, teachers and the wider community in addition to promote volunteering amongst students. One of the highlights was the Interfaith conference which saw representatives from different religious and communities groups from the local area discuss important issues surrounding community cohesion.

Follow our two ace reporters as the report goes rapidly south. In the tradition of the news finishing on light-hearted content, we try to get a real life President on camera, with mixed results. The Media Team investigate.

School Report
Aylward's contribution to the "BBC's School Report 2016" showcases our talent, attitude and togetherness. Across subjects, our students grasped the opportunity for a new and exciting style of learning. 

In front of camera are a mix of year 9, 10 and 11 and 13 students. In the studio we have year 9s, Raiessa and Mergim, showcasing presentation skills. Interviewing staff and students are year 10s Sara, Beyza, Barancan, Szilvia and Ulku. Ayisha and Halima from year 11, offer critical citizenship perspective. From year 13, Lisa and Alfani present the values of the Academy. Dwayne Yearwood boogied like Barack Obama and Himali interviewed Mr Athwal and Miss Weeden. 

Behind the camera, there was a critical eye and attention to detail. Special mention must go to year 9s, Hasan Sakizdagi and Shannon Linwood, who ran the camera feeds and updated the studio script in their own time, along with Mrs Cleary's year 10 camera crews. These unseen students brought the video to life. 

Chiefly organising the events and re-shoots were Miss Elmi and Islam for Citizenship. Miss Kilgannon and Edwards for English. Miss Cleary and Mr Freeman oversaw the production and post-produced. For the Web Page, Mr Aikuta designed and maintained the site, and the Media teachers brought the content to platform. 

Many thanks to other members of staff and students who got involved in the events and made them into a thing. 

Finally, Raiessa finishes the studio broadcast with a "That's it for this year" wrap. 
See you next year.
