Pupil Leaders Enjoy Celebration Event At University Of Oxford

Posted: 8th March 2024

This week, a team of our Year 5 pupils enjoyed a special Celebration Day at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford to celebrate their completion of this year’s Student Leadership Programme.
Run by United Learning in partnership with the Dirt is Good Project, the programme challenges pupils across the Group’s academies and independent schools to develop and deliver their own social action project, for the benefit of their school, local or wider communities.

Since the programme’s launch in November, our pupils have been hard at work carrying out a project to raise awareness of food waste and stop edible food from going to landfill.
At this week’s exciting Celebration Day, our young leaders saw their excellent efforts celebrated when they presented their project to an audience of around 100 peers and teachers from across other participating schools. The team took to the stage with impressive confidence and enthusiasm and were excellent representatives of our school community.

During their trip, our pupils also got the opportunity to learn more about university life and what it means to be a student at the University of Oxford. The pupils enjoyed a special tour of the College as well as a taster lecture where they learnt about Greek Myths. Some of our pupil’s expert knowledge on the subject really impressed the tutor as well as the audience.
Well done to all our pupils who engaged so wholeheartedly in this year’s programme and, through their project, have made such a real and positive difference to our local community.
