Year 7 Events 

Summer Term 2022
Year 7 Gurdwara Trip

On Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th May, pupils from Year 7 visited the Gurdwara in Smethwick. The pupils learnt all about the 5ks and the main Sikh duties. Also, they were given a guided tour around the Gurdwara and served a traditional lunch of lentil dahl, rice and chapati.

The pupils studied some beautiful artwork while listening to stories about Sikh kings and Guru Nanak. They also sat in the prayer hall and respected the priest with the Guru Granth Sahib (holy book). Year 7 described this experience as interesting and wonderful.

Warwick Castle Trip

We fully enjoyed taking Year 7 to Warwick Castle. It was a fantastic trip which was thoroughly enjoyed by both staff and pupils. We got to walk the castle grounds, visit the state rooms inside the castle, we climbed to the top of the castle and saw the views of Warwick and watched the brilliant birds of prey show. The pupils were a real credit to the school. Thank you and well done Year 7.


 Inspiration Day - Digital Safety

On Wednesday, 6th October, the whole school took part in an Inspiration Day that focused on how to keep themselves digitally safe. Throughout the day, pupils were encouraged to think about their media choices and habits, including how they achieve a healthy balance of online and offline activity. They looked at their digital footprints, considering how their online actions impact themselves and others. Pupils also looked at how digital dramas can be de-escalated and at how they communicate with others online. We looked at roles in cyberbullying and how pupils can be responsible digital citizens. The work produced from each year group is now on display.

Ambassador for Peace and Education visits school
On Wednesday 29th January, KS3 has the pleasure of observing a powerful speech and taking part in a question and answer session with Ahmad Nawaz. He campaigns globally for peace and education for young people and has spoken about these issues at the UN World Merit360 summit, the House of Lords and over one hundred schools and colleges, including Eton College as well as Cambridge and Oxford Universities. 
 

Ahmad is now running a campaign globally for youth empowerment and is the first-ever young person to be invited by the President of Portugal to speak at the Global Estoril Conference in May 2019, where he met with other heads of the state and some Nobel Laureates to discuss youth role in the society. 
 
We are grateful to Ahmad and his father for taking the time to visit us and speak so candidly and powerfully to our pupils at Parkside. Listening to such a young motivational speaker had an enormous impact with KS3 during an inspirational week 'The difference that we want to make starts with us.'
