Sheffield Park Academy Newsletter December 2017 - page 6

As part of the US Mentoring project that we undertake with the University of Sheffield the 40 Year 9 pupils
involved went on a campus visit led by their student mentors. This is the fifth year of running this project
and involves second and third year students from the University of Sheffield coming in every week to have a
1:1 with their mentee. The project will end next Spring with a graduation ceremony at the Octagon Centre.

Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital Snowflake Launch
Pupils from the fundraising committee
recently attended the snowflake launch to
see the Sheffield Park Academy sponsored
Christmas light be switched on.
12 weeks of fundraising by our wonderful
pupils and staff enabled the committee to
pledge enough money to secure a snowflake
and contribute to dazzling illuminations.
Schools and businesses from across South
Yorkshire have raised more than £70,000
for The Children’s Hospital Charity’s ‘Make it
Better appeal’. The appeal, launched in 2012,
urgently needs funds to build a brand new
wing at the hospital complete with three new
wards with mostly private rooms, a spacious
new outpatients department, outdoor
gardens and space to play.
