Mr Waters’ favourite word is “spaghettification” and is the name given to the process caused by a black hole “swallowing” an object as it draws the object out into a long, thin spiral of atoms. What is your favourite word?

Young Chamber

Last academic year, Young Chamber raised £5000 for SUDEP through events such as Burns Night Supper and Murder Mystery. This year they are on track to raise even more. Junior Young Chamber, which is run during POP sessions raised £500 for charity last academic year through the sale of milk shakes and reindeer bags. This year they have already organised and successfully run a barn dance for the over 60s in conjunction with Junior Interact and are set to break last year’s record.

Annually we 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. This year was attended by Helen Grant MP and Helen Whately MP. 

Hoodies  Snowdonia hoodies 2

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 this year’s chosen charity 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 and was a great success.  People attended for a meal and became part of the mystery which was themed as a police constabulary ball. They played sleuths for the evening with prizes for the most intuitive tables. This event raised over £1200 for charity. 

Igs fest 26 Igs fest 21

In September, Young Chamber challenged themselves to organise a new event, the IGS Fest. External bands such as the Arcaves played alongside our house bands to entertain students. There was also a glitter stall, food stalls and the Interact Fair trade tuck shop. This event, although was hard work to organise and took months of planning, was very successful raising over £1200 for SUDEP. 

January will see the return of our annual Burns Night Supper hosted in conjunction with Interact and looks set to be as successful as previous years. 

The enthusiasm for their club is second to none and as a group they are growing both in number and confidence. We are always looking for new ideas, so please contact Miss Pope if you have any suggestions.
