Youth Health Champions from Kelmscott School in Walthamstow have successfully secured a £1,000 grant from the Mayor of London to deliver a campaign highlighting period poverty
Salaam Peace’s East London United project engages children and young people from Waltham Forest and Hackney - particularly those who may be at risk of isolation or being caught up in crime.
The project delivers a range of sporting activities such as football, cricket and tennis, supplemented by workshops on areas such as citizenship, critical thinking and presentation skills to build relationships between staff, volunteers and participants.
Through this engagement, and by building trust between service users and providers, it supports children and young people in developing new and lasting friendships with people from different postcodes, cultures and religions.
In attendance from Kelmscott, Mr S Jones – Deputy Headteacher, Mr M Jones – Assistant Headteacher Ms M Mandozzi –Head of PE, Ms P Ereira – Funding & Facilities Manager, Geanina Savu, Year 10 student.
The Hackney Downs branch of IntoUniversity arranged for our school to visit BlackRock Investment Management Company for a Global Games Simulation event on Friday 25th January. This activity was aimed at our Business Studies and Economics students and members of the Young Enterprise scheme running at Kelmscott. This was to help them to develop a better understanding of the various roles within an organisation, how to market and promote their ideas, the challenges businesses face and strategic planning. This activity helped our students to gain valuable team working and communication skills, develop their marketing and negotiation skills, enhance their problem solving abilities and to think creatively.
Staff from IntoUniversity and volunteers from BlackRock stayed with the group for the entire day, helping teams with their campaigns, offering advice and personal insights into working for BlackRock.
Our students were split into two teams, one representing Chicago and one Madrid. The aim of the activity was to bid for their country to host the Global Games.
Each group was given a profile of their country which included facts about the economy, population, statistical data, their unique selling point and the pros and cons of hosting this event.
Within the activity the teams had to raise income by completing tasks as well as managing project expenditure such as staffing costs, rental payment and potential fines for missing submission deadlines.
The two teams had to face each other for a debate about which country deserved to host the games, deliver a Marketing and Creative Strategy Presentation before the final activity, delivering their Campaign Showcase.
Staff from IntoUniversity and BlackRock were given the job of judging each task, awarding points and making the decision of who would host the global games.
Following a successful campaign the Team Madrid was awarded the right to host the games. Congratulations Team Madrid.
Comment from Ozlem and Alexia about their experience
We went to BlackRock on the 24th January with our school. We think this experience was a great opportunity for all of us because we got to see and experience how it is to work in a professional environment. It gave us an insight on what it would be like to work, in the future. BlackRock has improved our confidence and successfully working in a team. We recommend BlackRock to everyone that wants to learn and know more about the professional environment.

Showcase of students Art work lit up on the school building. Parents, students, staff and friends of Kelmscott were treated to mince pies and hot chocolate whilst listening to the school choir perform Christmas songs.
On Monday 15th October 2018, 14 Year 8 students took part in “bikeability” free cycle training with Cycle Confident, London Borough of Waltham Forest’s cycle training provider. This safe, structured and standardised programme is designed to make students more competent cyclists and prepare them for cycling on road.
Despite short periods of rain , after an initial bicycle check and skills assessment, students were led around the playground, practising steering, safe braking and given information about route planning, basic cycle maintenance and the Do’s and Don’ts of safe cycling. Those more confident students took to the local streets, for a real cycling experience.
It was a fun day and students came away from the course as more confident cyclists.
We hope to be able to offer more follow up training for these students and others in other year groups.
Thank you to Michael and Clem for their instruction and support.
