22 Year 10 students were chosen to take part in a fantastic opportunity with the Brokerage Citylink. The Brokerage Citylink are an independent charity providing young people in London with a ‘Pathway’ of opportunities into employment; working in partnership with employers, schools and volunteers. Their programmes are designed to raise students aspirations by showing them the opportunities available to them in the City and finance sectors, whilst bringing them in to direct contact with the realities of working life.
October is Black History month and Lister will be running an event to celebrate.
This years theme is ‘looking into the future’ and will include a motivational speaker, music, dance and poetry. It will be a two part show, with refreshments for sale during the interval.
The event will take place on Wednesday 15th October, from 5:00pm-6:30pm in the Assembly Hall.
Tickets will be 50p for students, £1 for staff, with all money being donated to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust.
GB International, Rachel Shaw, got her season off to a great start when taking bronze at the Bristol Under-17 national tournament, held last weekend. This now means that Rachel will move closer to selection for the Under-17 Europeans and Worlds (held next year), where the top four GB ranked fencers attend the Europeans, and the top four attend the Worlds. Well done Rachel!!
“I am so proud of Rachel’s achievement in Bristol. She has a good chance of selection for the Europeans and Worlds, but has to perform well at the next Under-17 tournament held in Manchester next weekend, and at the Gateshead Under-20 national tournament, also held in October” said coach Ms Strachan. Good luck Rachel!!
