Being 18 in 2018

Posted on: January 18th 2018

 5199457We were delighted to hear former Amery Hill student Georgia Head’s eloquent interview on the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Programme: Being 18 in 2018. 

Turning 18 can feel like a massive transition from adolescence to adulthood, and a whole new world of responsibility. The programme interviewed a number of young women who are all turning 18 in 2018 and explored their perceptions of being an adult and the challenges they face as they make the transition into adulthood.

The young women speak of the challenges they face as individuals, be that from being a young mum, living with foster parents, being a young carer themselves or living with a chronic illness or condition.

Presented by Jane Garvey and produced by Olivia Cope of the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Programme, the interviews are well worth a listen. Catch Georgia‘s interview from 16.47 to 25.55 minutes.

Amery Hill Prom - sunshine, sparkles and sophistication

Amery Hill’s Year 11 students celebrated the end of their secondary school education with a sophisticated dinner and dance at Froyle Park, Upper Froyle. Everything was perfectly in place from the suits and the bow ties, the beautifully elegant dresses to the handbags, the heels and the make-up! Talking about the event, Progress Leader, Mr Owain Lewis, commented “The arrangements for the evening were led by the Student Prom Committee, who organised the event like a team of professionals! Having worked so hard over the past few months for their GCSE exams, it was lovely that the students could celebrate together. They had a fantastic evening and it is definitely one they will remember.” The evening opened with an impressive array of transport for the traditional arrival at Amery Hill School, including a fantastic display of vintage vehicles, a variety of sports cars and even a tractor, a doughnut-performing Rotax kart and an articulated lorry cab, more commonly used to haul a 44 tonne trailer! The fly past by a yellow tiger moth biplane seemed coincidental, or was it?   It was wonderful that so many members of the community came out to wish them well and make them feel special for the evening. Tutors and students enjoyed a reception in the wonderful surroundings of Froyle Park before sitting down to dinner which was followed by the presentation of awards and speeches. The evening was rounded off at Froyle Park with plenty of photo opportunities and dancing.   To view the photos from the evening click here If students would like electronic copies of their own photos please contact Mrs Rose in the ICT Department.View Article
