It was a much anticipated evening with many schools around Birmingham participating in the event. The pupils at St Paul’s school took part in thinking of an innovative idea to spend £1,500 to improve an aspect of Birmingham. Our ideas were to raise awareness of children with hidden disabilities, a cause which is dear to us all at St Paul’s. Our idea was to create a sensory tree or area in Birmingham to allow anyone who may be stressed, even Parents, to have a safe and quiet area to calm down. Last night we reached a pinnacle in the event, where pupils at St Paul’s were up against some of the higher profile schools and able pupils in Birmingham. Unfortunately, we didn’t win but we surprisingly won an alternative prize! Turves Green School came first to win and then there was a surprise cheque that had been put forward last minute. As the speech continued after the winners were announced the Head of SEND provision for Birmingham, Julia Davey, spoke of difficulties faced by pupils coming from Social and Emotional backgrounds with hidden disabilities. Our hearts began to pound with the anticipation, was she speaking of us? Yes! A last minute surprise was in store for us! We were awarded £500.00 for our idea! Well done to Mckobie and Kion for their relentless commitment to this project and presenting their idea so eloquently. They showed charisma, sophistication and above all bravery in speaking in front of complete strangers. They overcame huge barriers and proved to themselves that they are head and shoulders above anyone their own age and ability. I’m so proud of these pupils and the support of staff at St Paul’s. Here’s to next year’s competition. WE ARE READY! By Mrs Dutfield English Teacher...

NGAs have been designed to engage young people in Birmingham to become active citizens who contribute positively to Birmingham’s future! The competition is for schools within Birmingham to think of an idea that could improve their local community spaces. Pupils could win up to £1500 to spend on their idea. Pupils were tasked to investigate what they liked and disliked about Birmingham. Pupils debated about what would be useful to them in Birmingham and what would be sustainable as an idea. Pupils began by forming a team- The Dream Team! Each child played a role in the group and learned about teamwork and leadership skills. Pupils began their research by surveying members of the public. Many of our pupils at St Paul’s have complex social and emotional needs and it was here that their fantastic idea was born. Pupils decided they would like to see more inclusion for children with hidden disabilities. We pride ourselves in Birmingham by being part of a multicultural society and pupils wanted to take this one step further and looked at putting Equality and Diversity into practice. Pupils came up with the brilliant idea of creating a Sensory Space in Birmingham so that children with similar difficulties could access quiet areas. We spoke to members of staff at St Phillips Cathedral who were only too pleased to work with us. On Friday 22nd of June pupils Jack, Mckobie and Sam presented The Dream Team’s initial idea to members from The Next Generation team who visited St Paul’s School to hear their proposal. We were delighted to get through to the semi-finals on 17th July 2018, and much to our surprise and sheer delight Jack and McKobie have made it to the Finals. The award ceremony is tonight, with pupil’s involved attending with staff.... Read more...
