Six of our Year 10 students have been involved with this BBC national schools project and have written and presented news reports on activities they have participated in at The Linden Centre over the last few months. Here are some of their reports.
Linden students paid £1 each to enter sports competitions and enjoy tea and cakes in the centre. A long table in the main corridor was filled with delicious cakes, baked by the students and staff.
Activities included a run or walk of 10 laps (or 5 if done backwards) around the sports cage in the playground. This was followed by a football crossbar challenge and a free-throw basketball competition. The sports ended with 5-a-side football for girls and boys.
A total of £180 was raised on the day and students were proud to have done their bit for those less fortunate than themselves around the world.
The reason for these was that the students came in first thing in the morning to find the outline of a body on the floor in the main corridor. Students had to use clues to find out who the murderer was. There were three suspects and members of the local police helped students to use questioning to find the guilty person.
The students enjoyed the day and learned a lot about police methods. At the end of the day students watched the guilty person taken away in a police car.
Students at The Linden Centre are taking part in 'Rock Challenge', which is a dance competition. Many other schools are taking part in it. Practice for the event has started and will continue until 26th June.
The competition is taking place in Eastleigh at The Point and schools will have 8 minutes to perform on stage.
