The WGS Interact Club members showed the Wood Green values in fantastic style during this year's Charities week. Led by Lesley Summers, a Rotary volunteer, Miss Nicoll and our Sixth Form charity leads, Lois and Jasmine, the team organised a very successful Charities Week.
Students and Staff enjoyed lots of fun events including a staff vs sixth form students netball match, lots of excellent cakes and the very popular Teachers’ Karaoke!!
The Short Story Competition had 37 entries which was great! Emily Little (11HLW) came first winning £20. Poppy Gray 8LJH came second winning an Easter egg, and Alex Westbrook 8LJH came third, also winning an Easter egg.
Miss Nicoll is hoping to print the winning entries along with pictures that show off ideas from their stories in some sort of booklet format to keep in the library.
Wood Green Bake Off was also a great success this year. All entries were of an exceptional standard and the competition proved extremely difficult to judge! A special thank you to this year's judges from Witney Rotary Club. The winners were chosen on age, presentation and a little nibble of cake!
1st Prize: Lizzie McIntyre 7HLC
2nd Prize: Carla Baish/Ellen Carpenter 7HLC
3rd prize: Hannah Hayes 8LCG

Staff vs Students Netball Match: A super successful event with a fantastic student turn out. The a-little-bit-too competitive teachers managed to win 12 - 5 against a strong sixth form defence. Thank you to all of the students who came along to cheer on both teams.
Staff Karaoke: A roaring success thanks to Mr Armstrong and the brave teachers who went up and performed. The best turn out of students we have ever seen came along to watch and give their support. An incredible rendition of Rag'n'Bone Man's 'Human' made a show-stopping grand finale! A huge thanks to everyone involved.
Thank you to everyone for their fundraising efforts. The money is still coming in, but so far we have raised over £900 and the total is still rising!
