Term 3 Newsletter 2011 - The Isle of Sheppey

(Left to right) – Anthony Halsall, Lucy Boyle, Baroness Benjamin, Louis Russon, Miles Brown Back to school for Baroness She was a hit in TV’s Playschool in the ‘70s, but today Floella Benjamin performs on a very different set in the House of Lords as Baroness Benjamin of Beckenham. The Lib Dem peer visited the Academy recently to provide a valuable insider’s view into the work of the House. Law, Sociology and Citizenship students found it an ‘eye-opening’ experience according to Year 12’s Shannon Eastoe. Baroness Benjamin spoke of her experiences in Lords debates and discussed the controversies of possible reform of the Upper House. This excited so much interest that the Baroness asked students to write to her with their own suggestions for reform. Many have already taken up the challenge. Next stop is Westminster. The Baroness invited students to return the visit by meeting her at the Lords, and the trip should take place in the Summer Term. Aspire Term 3 Newsletter 2011 Raise your child’s attendance...
