Report from a Yr 7 All Saints’ pupil.
On Tuesday 14th November the Independent State Schools Partnership (I.S.S.P. [a group of schools who hold extra-curricular events for students throughout the year]) held an event for students from all over York called Breakthrough. All Saints sent 10 students to St. Peters School (where the event took place) to take part in it. At the event 6 teachers presented what they thought to be humanity’s greatest breakthrough and got the students to talk in small groups about which breakthrough was the greatest of all.
It was an excellent event that engaged the students present and got them talking with students from other schools. After the engaging debate had taken place the groups then chose the breakthrough which they would vote for. This is an exciting annual event which the students attending looked forward to – and were not disappointed!
