Festive Fun - Holiday Activities in Coventry
Thank you to all the colleges that entered a decorated Christmas tree into the Coventry Festival of Christmas Trees, all of which will be on display in Holy Trinity church over the holiday period. Each decorated tree had a specific theme and will be part of a larger display from schools and organisations across Coventry, with the winning tree judged by the Coventry Rotary Club. Mr Finlayson, Leader of Enrichment
In Year 9, each tutor group have been allocated charities to raise money for.
9MM have chosen Coventry Food Bank and students made cakes and bought drinks to raise money.
The tutor groups will work closely with the charities throughout the year in various fundraising activities.

This week some of our Year 7 students had the opportunity to see “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” author Jeff Kinney during a live on-line virtual event. Jeff is currently in the UK to promote his new Wimpy Kid book “Big Shot”.
During the event, Jeff talked about how the funny things that happened to him as a child which inspired him to create the character Greg Heffley, and, how a lot of the things Greg does in the books actually happened to him.
Not only does Jeff write the Wimpy Kid books – but he also draws all of the illustrations himself. He originally wanted to be a newspaper cartoonist, but was told that he wasn’t good enough so he became a writer instead.
The event was a fun experience and Jeff Kinney was very entertaining. At the end of the event the students got to see a sneak peak of the new Disney animated 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' film that will be out soon.
