Welcome to Arts & Media School Islington blog 2019-2020 where, along with our News Page, we keep you up to date with all the fascinating events that are taking place each week at our school.
What Career Live?
Our students joined thousands of other 15-19 year olds at ‘What Careers Live at Olympia’ last Friday 11th October 2019. This was an opportunity for students to participate in independent research and meet with employers, representatives from Universities, Apprenticeship opportunities and participate in a range of workshops such as ‘ Apprenticeship or University?’ or ‘What employers look for’
It was great to see our young people mingling, talking and spending time together, exploring and developing understanding of their options for the future. Students were asked to be ‘Professional’ at all times as a goal for them to make the most of this opportunity-and they were a credit to our school. We shall definitely be going again every year as it was an invaluable experience and very well organised and recommended.
FundaMentals World Mental Health Day
On Thursday 10th October, World Mental Health Day, we took a group of students to an event by FundaMentals which was to raise awareness of mental health and to celebrate how far we have already come.
The students who attended were part of the First Friday group, set up last year with Ashley Grey, and helped develop the campaign for FundaMentals which is part of a larger charity and is backed by many charities such as Children in Need.
There was a live panel and some performances from spoken word artists, poets and rappers. Porshia in year 9’s work was also on display at the venue.
Year 7 Football Team
On the 2nd October, our year 7 football team went one better and got to the FINAL of the Camden & Islington 6-a-side tournament where they lost 3-0 to Acland Burghley.
The highlight of the tournament was winning a penalty shoot out in the semi-final!
Congratulations to Tyler, Arthur, Nabil, Luis, Damario, Sachin, Adam, Kareem & Salim.
Year 8 Football Team
Congratulations to our year 8 football team as they made it to the semi-finals before losing 2-1 in a close game.
All students performed exceptionally well and it was great to see parents/carers supporting the team. Very well done to Gevan, Jeremy, Angelo, Roq, Light, Ciaran, Sebastian, Malachi, Abdirahman & Tyler (year 7)
A fantastic achievement to kick start the sporting season.
