Young Chamber is a thriving group within the student body comprising both girls and boys. There is also a Junior Young chamber which meets in the POP session weekly.
We have annually run a Business Lunch to which we invite some of the business community. They are able to network with each other and our students as well as receiving a presentation from our Young Chamber group and partaking of a buffet lunch. Many links have been made which have led to new ventures with our business partners.
Young Chamber Hoodies is one of the Young Chamber sub businesses. YC Hoodies provides hoodies for students and trips within the school. All profits made by YC Hoodies and Young Chamber as a whole go to SUDEP (SUDEP is the sudden, unexpected death of someone with epilepsy, who was otherwise healthy. In SUDEP cases, no other cause of death is found when an autopsy is done). YC Hoodies have already supplied a couple of large scale trips within the school with hoodies and received a positive feedback. Last year we provided the Ski Trip, Snowdonia, Disney and Year 13 Leavers Hoodies. This year we will be providing the hoodies for Year 8 for their Norfolk trip and Year 11 Leavers amongst others.
In cooperation with Interact we have organised a ‘Murder Mystery’ evening which was a great success. People attended for a meal and became part of the mystery which was about a school reunion. They played sleuths for the evening with prizes for the most intuitive tables.
This year the group are presenting an IGSFEST in September. They will have bands on the school field from lunchtime until 5pm. The music will be varied and give a festive feel to the afternoon.
The enthusiasm for their club is second to none and as a group they are growing both in number and confidence.
