As many of you will be aware, progress on the development of our Peace Garden has taken far longer than we expected. We have encountered a number of setbacks, but we are now able to progress this project and we have also discovered a Community Fund, set up by AVIVA Insurance that might be able to support the cause, as we need to generate more funds.
Celebrity Chef, Paul Rankin (Ready Steady Cook, Great British Menu, Saturday Kitchen) dropped in to Q3 Academy to give students a culinary masterclass to help promote fresh, healthy eating on behalf of the Academy caterers, Sodexo. Not only did Paul teach the children, he then went on to prepare lunch and serve it for staff and students during lunch service.
The need for additional secondary school places in Sandwell has resulted in the opportunity for Q3 to expand its work to reach a larger number of students. The first building phase of the new Academy in Langley will be completed next year, allowing us to open in September 2016 with our first Year 7 intake. This is an exciting development for all stakeholders associated with Q3 Academy and will bring benefits to students and staff at both Q3 Academies, which we are determined will be centres of educational excellence in Sandwell.
Students at Q3 Academy will be getting involved with politics next week during the run up to the General Election. As well as a mock Downing Street set up in the Design Centre, students will be learning about each party and their manifestos throughout the week before finally having the chance to vote on Thursday 7th May at break and lunch time.
