Cakes, cakes and more cakes!
Last week Post 16 organised a Macmillan Coffee Morning cake sale in the Sixth Form common room.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.
The Coffee morning is a worldwide fundraising event and this year our Post 16 was part of it.
Cakes ranged from 20p to £1 and we can now announce that we have raised £215 for the cancer charity.
Thank you to all who baked, donated and sponsored the cake sale.
BBC Birmingham Tours Trip
Recently, a number of pupils from Year 8 went on a tour of the BBC News Studio/Set at the BBC Birmingham and had a look behind the scenes.
The students were shown the inner workings of how BBC Radio Drama is made and they were able making their very own radio play complete with music and sound effects.
They created a short gothic horror tale about some travellers in the countryside during a storm seekeing refuge in a mysterious house. Click here to listen to their play on our Soundcloud channel
