Spirit Week

Announcement

Alsager School saw a first last week with students participating in ‘SPIRIT WEEK’.  A unique and exciting opportunity for our students to demonstrate the SPIRIT values through many different activities designed to develop new skills, experience fresh and exciting activities and undertake challenges that they would not normally have the opportunity to do in a normal school day.

The purpose of SPIRIT Enrichment is to enable students to engage with skills, ideas and activities, which they can see have an immediate link with the world outside of school as well as in.  Hopefully these experiences will stimulate new interests whilst enhancing the skills that will set them up for life.  During SPIRIT WEEK there was a vast range of activities available, either within school or as external trips, ranging from American Football with Crewe Railroaders Youth Team, Archery with Alsager Scout Group, creating a Photography exhibition based on the landscape and wildlife of Alsager and working with local makeup artist Jody on a Make Up and Special Effects Masterclass.  Externally, visiting Jodrell Bank, Ice Skating, Skiing, navigating the Peak District and taking an Art Deco Plate workshop at Gladstone Pottery Museum.  Alongside these day trips, students also had the opportunity to go on London Theatre Trip, where pupils watched Aladdin and The Lion King, also a trip to Barcelona to experience Spanish culture and all the city has to offer.

SPIRIT Enrichment Leader Miss Taylor said “SPIRIT Week 2018 has been fabulous, it is has given all students the opportunity to experience new and exciting activities outside of the classroom.  There has been an outstanding amount of positive feedback from students, staff and parents, which suggests that students fully appreciate this unique opportunity they receive at Alsager School to engage in such activities leaves them with a sense of fulfilment, pride and happiness.”

Students in year 7 have said “SPIRIT was amazing, we enjoyed it so much because it was our first time experiencing the week. We loved walking in the Peak District, even though we were dreading it at first due to it being so long but the walk was great, we loved seeing the scenery of the Peak District.”  Other pupils have commented, “SPIRIT was brilliant, we could try new activities like Skiing and Make Up Artistry, make new friends and learn lots of new skills!  We are already looking forward to SPIRIT 2019”.

SPIRIT Week 2022

SPIRIT Week 2022

We saw another fantastic SPIRIT WEEK in 2022, made even more exciting after the two years hiatus due to COVID. Students had unique and exciting opportunities to demonstrate the SPIRIT values through many different activities designed to develop new skills and undertake challenges that they would not normally have the opportunity to do in the typical school day.  

  

During SPIRIT WEEK there were an array of activities available, either within school or as external trips, ranging from a trip to the museum of Liverpool and Albert Docks, to Archery with the Alsager Scout Group, to our very own rock school, Cake Pops and Fudge kitchen and learning to juggle and spin plates with Circus Sensible. Students created a photography exhibition based on the landscape and wildlife of Alsager, while some worked with local makeup artist, Jody, on a Make Up and Special Effects Masterclass, or created bespoke pottery in a ceramics workshop. Students also had the opportunity to design their own graffiti masterpiece and perform in the Greatest Showman. Externally, students visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, explored local nature trails, visited the Lego Innovation Studio, navigated the Peak District, and visited the Liverpool Museum where they enjoyed karaoke.   

 

SPIRIT Enrichment Leader, Miss Thornton, said “SPIRIT Week 2022 has been a huge success and it is fantastic to see the students enjoying themselves after the stress of the last two years. It has been great seeing everyone getting involved whole heartedly and participating in activities they wouldn’t usually get the chance to. The feedback from students, staff and parents has been outstanding and the visiting professionals had nothing but praise for our students. I truly enjoyed going around and chatting to students and staff, and hearing of all the amazing things they had been doing!”  

 

Students in year 7 loved their first SPIRIT week, they said “I have had so much fun! My favourite part was the walk, it was just beautiful”; several year 7 also commented on how relaxing bracelet making was and how ‘capture the flag’ was great fun.  A year 9 commented “The Liverpool Museum was fun, especially the top floor where they had karaoke, that was sick!”.  

 

Roll on SPIRIT Week 2023!
