It was a great start to the half term for two of our pupils this week, who received newly reconditioned bikes, courtesy of Parc’s Bike Zone.
Parc’s Bike Zone is run in conjunction with the Invisible Walls scheme, and collect unused and unloved bikes from the local community. These are then serviced, repaired and restored by prisoners in the Bicycle Maintenance Workshop. The project supports the prisoners working towards their City and Guilds Entry Level 3 and Level 1 qualifications, who are proud to donate the bikes to children in the local area.
Two of our keen cyclists were over the moon to get their new set of wheels, and we’re grateful to Parc Prison for enabling us to provide the boys with more safe and suitable equipment to pursue their hobby.
We are so proud of Year 7 pupil Will C, who came second in the Key Stage 3 Creative Writing competition, run by Show Racism the Red Card. This is a fantastic achievement, and we can’t wait to see how Will’s creative writing talents continue to develop! You can read his poem below.
In any shape or form racism is not right.
It happens everywhere day and night.
So all people I now ask to fight.
It can happen around the world anywhere.
There are people who support and fight for a new
society – just for you and
you all should Hope for it too.
We will all Hope that we can find a way out.
So please do not try to doubt.
Now all people around the Earth –
Hope that racism will go away
