Ashton Park’s achievements touch the lives of many

Ashton Park's achievements touch the lives of many

Congratulations to the Ashton Park School community for their many achievements over the past term, including:

As part of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh, Ada, Ella and Lily chose to support Children’s Hospice South West. Every Monday after school for three months over the Winter, they walked around Bristol’s Harbourside and Ashton Court, often enduring cold and wet conditions, and raising an incredible £831 in the process!

Unsurprisingly, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) chose to visit Ashton Park, to personally receive their cheque (see below). There is a lovely account of this experience from the perspectives of CHSW, Ashton Park’s Outdoor Education and EVC Lead plus the students themselves. Please visit or to read these in full.

Another congratulations is in order for Mr Mantegna (pictured below), who has achieved Creative Education’s ‘Develop In Your Role as a Senior Mental Health Lead’. For this, Mr Mantegna fulfilled the organisation’s requirement to “Transform your school or college’s approach to mental health with our robust programme, with a range of pathways depending on your past experience and educational setting”.

Finally congratulations is due to students from Years 7 to 10 who have been rehearsing over the last few months in preparation for Bristol Stages show, held at Trinity Academy. The venue was fantastic and it was an amazing experience for these dancers to perform in front of a large audience.

Year 9 and 10 performed a piece based on the film ‘Step up’ choreographed by Ms Roddick and Ms Homer, and the Year 7 and 8s performed a contemporary/lyrical piece based on the song ‘Leave a Light On’ choreographed by Mrs Lonsdale and the dancers.

The dancers performed at their absolute best and we are extremely proud of their achievements; enjoy these videos here:
