Alfie Snook

British Cycling Award for Young Volunteers

Congratulations to Alfie Snook, for completing his British Cycling Award for Young Volunteers (CAYV) programme. This combines an introductory workshop at the Olympic Velodrome, which covers the fundamentals of cycle sport and volunteering roles, with practical placements with our Go-Ride Clubs. He has worked towards a Bronze (12 hours) and Silver (24 hours) award completing both qualifications during this summer and autumn terms. Gaining branded volunteer clothing, certificates, memberships and his help and guidance offered to others has been appreciated as he is one of only three in the Eastern Region Silver young volunteers. Well Done Alfie!

Hannah Gallagher

Hannah Gallagher

We welcomed back Hannah Gallagher, Alumni student and England International Rugby player. Hannah has generously given up her time to help coach Girls' rugby at Birchwood with Miss LaLonge. She has shared her wealth of experience, skills and knowledge with all the girls. As an ex England international, Hannah has also attended some PE classes to help to promote Rugby as a girls' sport.  It has been an amazing start for the students of the Girls' Rugby club, which takes place every Wednesday after school.

We would like to thank Hannah on behalf of students and staff for her time.
