HOUSE UPDATE Sustainable Transport was the motivational factor in the 'Tour de Leckie' house competition last Friday. It turns out the greenest house is Zodiac (despite the fact they wear yellow!). All groups of endurance riders managed over 25km in their one hour on the bike, showing that pedal power is definitely a viable alternative to cars or buses when it comes to transport. A massive thank you to Wolverhampton University for allowing us use of their sports facilities and fitness equipment #greenenergy #pedalpower #jlazodiac #jlahercules #jlaorion #jlaperseus #
Our Y7 have been really busy creating magnificent menus for a French café for our new competition. A beautiful selection here that would make your mouth water! So bon appétit everyone! Our winner(s) are amongst those but they'll have to wait a little longer before the big reveal in assembly next week! But congratulations to all our participants! They have made the MFL Faculty proud once again with their excellent effort and research on French delicacies! BRAVO!
As a part of Joseph Leckie Academy's Careers Program, Year 8 students in 8-ST visited local civil engineering company Barhale for a site visit and to learn about the different careers available in this field. The students had a great time, learning lots about potential future career paths. @ Barhale

Between 29th and 31st January, 9 A-Level students from Leckie visited the European Parliament in Brussels as guests of MEP Ellie Chowns. The group was led by Mr Greaves and had a fantastic experience taking part in Britain's final acts as a member of the EU. The group were present on the final speeches of British MEPs and were even mentioned on the floor of the European Parliament itself. The group also enjoyed the sights of the Belgian capital, the House of European History and the Parlementarium. It's refreshing to see young people so motivated by the power for political action and education. Thanks to Ellie and her assistant Helen Heathfield for giving our students such a great opportunity.
