Tutor2u Economics Workshop

On Friday 6th December the A-Level economists, accompanied by their teachers Michael and Neal, attend this year’s Tutor2u Economics Workshop in London.  Students enjoyed an intensive day of economics study with over 200 other economists from around the country.  The students took part in games and simulations to help them with applying their economic knowledge in real world contexts.  Two key pieces of information I will take away from the day are that only 10% of the cars sold in the UK last month were electric powered, and 70% of the world’s supply of Jade comes from Myanmar!  As you can tell, it was a varied day.  Below are the students posing with their workshop packs at the end of the event.  We had a great time.

 

Children In Need

This week the students have been busy raising money for Children in Need. Earlier this week a group of students hosted a cake sale where they sold lots of delicious cakes and biscuits, to kick off their fundraising week.

On Wednesday afternoon year 7-10 set off on their sponsored walk; walking as far as they could in the two hours- successfully managing to get to Chatham Dockside and back to College just before the end of the day! Finally, to bring the week to an end, it was ‘Dress out of the Ordinary’ Friday; allowing anyone to wear whatever wacky clothes they desired!

Through all of the fun events we managed to raise £500.51 (we are still waiting for a couple of other donations to come in)- thank you to everyone who helped us raise this money!
