Aquinas Sponsor Emmanuel school Sports Awards evening!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Aquinas had the pleasure of attending Emmanuel school’s sports awards this month, it was a great success and celebrated the vast amount of sporting talent the school has in its pupils!

 

The awards ranged from Team of the year, Most improved sports performer, Exceptional Achievement in sport to Sports personality of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The school were also celebrating their win of the Silver Games award 2013 on behalf of Sainsbury’s.

 

 

Aquinas Foundation also provided the school with a football shirt signed by the Queens Park Rangers Football team. This was put into a prize drawer to raise money for the school.

 

The awards were given in recognition of the students achievements and progress in the following sports;

Basketball, Football, Athletics, Cricket, Badminton, Rounders, Cross Country, Table Tennis, Tennis, Rugby, Tag Rugby, Netball.

 

Aquinas were very proud to be a part of the Emmanuel Sports awards and were extremely excited to hear of the exceptional sportsmanship the school has to offer throughout year groups 7 to 11.

The Aquinas Foundation will continue to support the Emmanuel school and are looking forward to the next sports awards!!!

 

The Bramcote School Top 50 with a little help from Aquinas!

Monday, November 25th, 2013

The Aquinas Foundation paid a very important visit to The Bramcote school last week as part of the schools Top 50 programme. The school has a great structure in place for attendance and truancy and we were there to support the school with their Top 50 Assembly. The year Group leader presented the assembly whilst the children watched the big screen with anticipation as the Top 50 students were announced! Aquinas Foundation provided the school with two brand new Land Rover bikes which will be mounted in the school hall as a reminder to the children of what they could win if they reach their targeted attendance scores. Attendance is such an important area for children in schools as the more time they have off school the longer it takes them to catch up in class which in turn can make the pupil want to have more time off… The Bramcote school are taking attendance scores seriously and with our help can reward the students who achieve 100% attendance with a prize worth winning.

“The 2 mountain bikes donated by Acquinas Foundation have been gratefully received by both staff and students at The Bramcote School.  The bikes will be used as an encouragement to raise attendance.  Students with 100% attendance from 11/11/13 – 4/4/14 will be entered into two prize draws.  One for key stage 3 and one for key stage 4. The launch of this initiative during assembly created a real buzz and lots of positive feedback from students within both key stages.  Several students have been asking many questions about the bikes which are displayed in our reception area to ensure students continue to be encouraged and inspired by such amazing prizes. The Bramcote School are very grateful to Rosie McLaughlin and Craig Anderson (Aquinas) for such generosity.  With improved attendance and motivation students are more likely to reach the potential. Thank you once again Aquinas for supporting our school.” Rosie Bosley(Attendance officer)

Aquinas Foundation will be supporting The Bramcote school every step of the way… Good Luck Bramcote!

 

 

 

Emmanuel Shoot to the Top!

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Aquinas Foundation are the proud sponsors of the Emmanuel Basket ball team. It was great to see the team in action last week playing in their new kit provided by us at Aquinas. The boys played really well and informed me that playing in the new kit makes them feel “part of a team” and gives them “more confidence”.

Aquinas Foundation will be supporting the Emmanuel Team every step of the way… video to follow, so watch this space!!
