Plymouth Respect Festival 2018

The Respect Festival returned to Plymouth after a 2-year break.  The Theme of the Festival was ‘Respect Heroes’ The selected heroes had come from diverse backgrounds and have been an inspiration to young people or the local community.  Brook Green selected Toby Gorniak, co-founder of Street Factory.

Students from Brook Green took part in the prop making workshop on June 15th 2018.   They decorated umbrellas using symbols and colours connected with Street Factory. In addition to this they embellished masks. The workshop was led by artist Karen Evans and supported by members of Plymouth Race Equality Council.

Prior to the parade, the students participated in a Bhangra dance workshop, which was connected to the festival. On the day of the parade, July 14th, 2018, a Bhangra band led the parade followed by a stream of umbrellas bopping up and down in rhythm to the Bhangra beat.

Numeracy Day!

On numeracy day students celebrated the importance of numbers.  The day encouraged students to reason and to apply simple numerical concepts through exploring everyday life skills.  The focus for maths day was Math Eye.  Maths Eye is the idea that mathematics is everywhere, around us in our real world. The year 7’s enjoyed a QR code maths quiz around the school, pizza making, school maths eye and Raiders in the afternoon. 


Year 8’s had an amazing time orienteering at central park. 


Year 9’s went into town for Plymouth Maths Eye. Year 10’s were in three groups, some went kayaking as part of their vocational activities, some went to Saltash to challenge Google maps, and some made rulers and gained life skill experiences at the local shops. 


Everyone had a great day and learnt many valuable skills.

The race was on!

The race was on today for 10AA, who for part of Maths Day took on Google Maps. The group tested the accuracy of the website by finding out how long it takes to walk from school to Saltash. Before leaving Google Maps told them that it will take 1 hour 14 minutes to get to the ice-cream shop. The group made it in 1 hour 11 minutes, including a moment to posse for the photo.  With this information the group have been able to work out their average speed, converted distances between mile and kilometres as well as look at statistics of the Tamar and Brunel Bridges.

Step into Sports

A group of Year 10 BTEC Sports pupils attended an event at the Life Centre recently with the aim to develop leadership skills as part of their course.  The pupils participated in a leadership workshop in the morning, working alongside young leaders from Mill Ford and Woodlands.  They had the opportunity to listen to an inspirational speech from former Paralympian swimmer Kate Grey.



In the afternoon, the pupils were able to try out their leadership skills by running mini sports events for some primary school pupils from Woodlands. 



The pupils were a credit to both themselves and the school and have created links to do further workshops in the future

Bhangra Dance Workshop 

I am delighted that our school is taking part, yet again, in the Respect Festival 2018 thanks to the dedication of the wonderful Miss Paganuzzi.

Following an inspirational Art Workshop for a selected group of students (who designed different coloured umbrella’s), the students went on to experience a Bhangra Dance workshop. I felt honoured to watch our students enthusiastically engage with the truly brilliant Exim Dance Company, learning a routine they will perform with schools from around Plymouth at The Respect Festival on Saturday 14th July.


The workshop proved how energetic and skilful our students really are, I was genuinely exhausted just watching them work!!!!! Good luck to all for the performance!
