On Thursday 22nd March, Mulberry UTC students and staff attended the opening of the Letters from Arakan exhibition at the Brick Lane Art gallery. The exhibition shows pictures taken by Adib Chowdhury and letters from Rohingya refugees which depict some of the things which they have endured.
Students also met Mark Field, who is the Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific and MP for the Cities of London and Westminster.
Our sixth form students loved seeing the pictures and hearing about the crisis first hand from people who have visited the region. The charity committee are passionate about raising awareness and funds of such issues.
Once again, we are immensely proud of our Year 10s. We are delighted to say that five students have had their poetry published in 'The Poetry Games - Truth or Dare?' the latest publication from the Young Writers' poetry competition. The students chose either Team Truth: writing about what it's like to be them, sharing their passions and dreams; or Team Dare, writing exciting poetry that challenges the reader or evokes the spirit of adventure.
Well done to Gabriela, Maiya, Abigail, Roxy and Nicole.
Congratulations to Year 10 student, Abigail Manning, for winning the Regional Final of the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge 2018 for Tower Hamlets! This is the world's biggest youth speaking event, and we are incredibly proud of Abigail for her achievement.

Skills London is London’s biggest jobs and careers event for 15-24 year olds. Mulberry UTC is very pleased to be returning this year. More details here: http://www.skillslondon2017.co.uk/
Year 10 students have been thoroughly enjoying PE sessions down at Shadwell Basin with Mr. Dobbs. Activities have included sailing, kayaking, and rockclimbing!
Mulberry UTC and Pepper joined the NHS England Young People's Takeover Challenge Event at Guy's Hospital on Saturday. Pepper is an industrial robot, already used as a hospital receptionist in Belgian hospitals, where it greets patients, shows them around and helps with translation. UTC students will work with Pepper and other developments in health technology, so they are well prepared for their future careers. Pepper's manufacturers claim it is an 'emotional' robot which helps people feel relaxed by responding to them in a friendly and empathetic way. The people who met Pepper on Saturday certainly seemed to agree!
