We were invited to attend an event at the Ice Rink on 29 April 2016 to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Rhys, in Year 9, and Milly, Year 10, both spoke to him about their experiences of doing the award.
Three of our students also participated in an ice skating assault course. Toni (Year 8), Holly (Year 7) and Roxy (Year 10), all experienced and talented skaters, won the competition!
Roxy then went on to perform with her synchronized skaters, the Wight Jewels. It was lovely to see lots of schools and community groups at the rink. Our students were all brilliant and it was a great morning.
On 12 July, two students from year 8, Louis Harris and Alivia Simpson, gave a presentation on behalf of Ryde Academy on the benefits of alcohol education to a group of representatives from Public Health, the Police and the Isle of Wight Council.
This year all of Year 8 have followed a series of lessons on the dangers of drinking. This is part of a nationwide project which aims to educate young people to help them make healthy choices for their future alcohol consumption. Ryde Academy was one of 34 schools in the country to take part.
Representative from a number of Island schools were present and Emilie and Bailey were also given the opportunity to contribute to the birthday card to the Queen. There were readings from the Bishop of Portsmouth and the Lord Lieutenant, and the choir from Christ the King sang hymns and the National Anthem.
Following homemade cakes, Emilie and Bailey had their photo taken by the card for the Queen.
