Before ... and after!
Congratulations to Mollie Evans in Year 7 who has made a bold personal statement by having her long hair lopped off for charity.
Around 30 centimetres of Mollie's hair was cut off and styled into a stunning bob at Lily J's in Stradbroke and it has been donated to the Little Princess Trust. This Trust provides real hair wigs free of charge to children across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. The Trust relies solely on the enthusiastic support of community fundraisers and donations from caring people like Mollie.

Thank you to all the business people from 14 different organisations in BASH, who came along to provide mock interviews for our Year 10 students this week. With career choices varying from Groom to Social Worker and Editor to Aerodynamic Engineer we managed to provide every student with an opportunity to research and prepare their C.V. in English lessons, in preparation for possible future careers. Feedback from students included descriptions like: 'exhilarating', 'terrifying' and 'proud of myself' while the feedback given to every student from their interviewer was absolutely invaluable; a real boost for life after school. The support from BASH, the Business Association of Stradbroke High School, is absolutely vital in allowing students access to real life opportunities including workshops, assemblies, careers events, work experience and apprenticeships.

Zak Hills-Brown in year 8 has great news to report:
The tournament was condensed from three days into two because of the anticipated arrival of hurricane Irma. These were two very long but amazing days that I will remember forever the first was mainly for juniors and I competed in most of my categories then but I stayed to support my teammates and watch everything going on around us.
The second day was when I competed in my team events. Between competing it was a constant rush to change gear for my next category but just before I was set to fight or perform the nerves would sink in and I would have to keep calm and try not to show how I was feeling however once I stepped onto the mat the nerves changed to excitement and adrenaline.
I was focused and ready. I won three Gold medals (in Korean kata, team kumite and team points fighting) one Silver medal (in Japanese kata) and one Bronze (in continuous fighting).
My proudest moment was becoming Under 14 Korean Kata World Champion."
Congratulations Zak - all the hard work you have put into training has really paid off!
