Year 12 student Olivia Chambers has been moved by the plight of the world’s refugees and is taking action here in the academy by organising a collection of clothing and shoes, camping gear, stationery, toys and toiletries.
Through her contact with charities such as 'Help Refugees' and 'Yorkshire Aid', Olivia decided to raise awareness of her campaign through posters and through a presentation which she delivered during the Post 16 briefing.
So far, Olivia has collected five sacks of clothing, and has been given teddies/toys and toiletries. She is keen to collect more so that she can hand over as much as possible to 'Yorkshire Aid' when she goes to their warehouse in Leeds. From there, the items collected will be sent around Europe or given to refugees who have settled around the north.
If you/your family fancy having a January clear-out and would like to donate, please bring in whatever you can and leave it, clearly labelled 'Yorkshire Aid' in ICT1 before Friday 3rd February.
Our annual awards evening took place here at the academy on Tuesday 12th September. It was a very special event in which we celebrated and applauded the progress and achievements of our students during the past academic year.
Staff and students at Macmillan Academy are celebrating another superb set of Post 16 results. Students achieved an all-time high of 25 A* grades and almost one in three A level grades was awarded either an A or A*.
