Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

 

Ashover Junior School football club are sponsored by us at the Aquinas Foundation and were successful enough throughout the season to make it to the Matlock Mercury under 14’s Cup Final. They played a great game and played brilliantly as a team showing a strong sense of team spirit in the kit provided by Aquinas! unfortunately they were beaten in the end but they should be very proud of the performance they gave!

 

 

Aquinas will be following the Ashover Junior football club as they progress into the next season, and look forward to watching them in many more Cup Finals!

 

 

 

Aquinas Launch Attendance Project at Brackensdale Junior school in Derby.

Monday, April 28th, 2014

The Aquinas Foundation paid a visit to Brackensdale Junior school to present an assembly to the school which covered attendance and the importance of coming to school every day. The school take attendance very seriously and have a good structure in place with small rewards and house prizes, for example looking after and taking home a teddy bear for a week. They were ecstatic that we could come in to present them with a new Land Rover Mountain Bike.

We will be supporting Brackensdale every step of the way and are looking forward to paying another visit to award the winner with the prize.

We have some very exciting projects coming up which will be launched after the half term. Many more Land Rover Bikes will be placed into schools by the Aquinas Foundation as part of attendance projects. The bikes from the previous projects will be awarded to the children who have gained 100% attendance or to one of the pupils from a targeted group who have improved on their attendance dramatically! We will be launching a new swimming project with the GB Swimming coach, after the last event which went so well, Aquinas are going to make it into a long running project, inviting different schools to take part each time. Wes Morgan will be supporting Aquinas by helping to run a training session at Rushey Mead School in Leicester followed by a question and answer session for the students and parents. Along with some other very inspiring opportunities for the children of the East Midlands.
