Sigma News

Sigma roundup

Our House assembly focused on National Careers Week. We were very lucky to have Correll Johnson, Production Technician Assistant and Darrel Lambert, Junior Production Coordinator from Icon Films who are an award-winning production company. From Animal Planet US’ highest-ever rating series, River Monsters, to Emmy-nominated actor (Charles Dance) narrated Savage Kingdom, for National Geographic, they deliver high-end factual content for the UK and international market. We were shown a short film of what they worked on and then we had a Q&A from the Prefects, Louis, Aineias and Paulo. Questions varied from what skills and qualifications they needed, what they enjoyed about their job and what advice would you give to people of our age who have no idea what they want to do when they finish their education. A huge thank you to Correll and Darrel for giving up their time to come in and share their experiences with Sigma. The students really enjoyed it.

Sigma Recycling to raise money for our House Charity.

We will continue to fundraise throughout the year with our recycling schemes.

Sigma have signed up with Walkers to recycle any brand of crisp wrapper.

We have a recycling BOX for your empty crisp packets. Please bring them to Mrs Arnold in the Food Office. Once we have 400 we will send them back to Walkers to be recycled.

We are continuing with our Clothing Drive. We are collecting clothes, shoes and bags to recycle. Please drop them in to school. We will then sort them and arrange for a collection from Bristol Textile Recycling.
