  • Send My Friend to School

    Published 09/07/18

    On the 18th June, Limehurst’s Year 9 students were visited in assembly by the MP for Loughborough, Nicky Morgan. The visit was in aid of Limehurst’s continuing support for the Send My Friend to School campaign. The campaign is an annual one, which aims to educate people on the struggles faced by young people across the world in trying to access an education. It also seeks to lobby the UK Government to continue to play an active part in securing education for all throughout the world. The focus for this year’s campaign is making schools safe, something which is taken for granted in the UK, but sadly, is not a guarantee in many parts of the developing world due to conflict and oppression.

  • Code Club Success!

    Published 06/07/18

    This year has been the first year that we have run an after school code club at Limehurst Academy.  All students have learnt to program in Small Basic and Python, and a little HTML. 

    Students have also had opportunities to use the micro:bit to program the 5 x 5 LED display, program the buttons and also create music.

    We have some exciting projects lined up for next year, and are very much looking forward to recruiting some new Year 7 students to join our enthusiastic and energetic group!

  • 2018 Duke of Edinburgh Practice Expedition

    Published 05/07/18

    Over the weekend, in sweltering temperatures, the Limehurst Duke of Edinburgh Group took to the footpaths of Leicestershire.  In spite of the extreme conditions, both of the groups performed really well and have more than prepared themselves for their assessed expedition in September.

     

     

    Before the weekend the groups had to plan their route, their meals and where and how they would camp.  They had to carry all of the equipment that would enable them to be totally independent for the two days and one night.

    Staff were really impressed with how they dealt with the added pressure of the intense heat, reaching above 30oC at times, and with how well all of the groups worked with each other.  Well done to all of you and we look forward to working with you in September!

    Mr Chamberlain, Mr Robinson, Ms Bonar.

  • Mental Health Awareness

    Published 19/06/18

    Over the past academic year, some of our Year 8 & 9 students have been involved in creating a social media campaign, raising awareness of mental health amongst their peers. After a number of sessions, the students’ ideas were used to create some posters and pin badges.

     

     

     

    These posters have been distributed across schools in the Leicestershire area to publicise the school nurse service and ChatHealth text messaging service. Most recently, some of the students involved were interviewed for a BBC East Midlands Today programme that will be aired as part of the celebrations for the NHS turning 70.

     

     

    We are extremely proud of the students and their efforts; they have been wonderful ambassadors for Limehurst throughout.
