The Medical Mavericks recently visited the UTC to present a whole school assembly about careers in the Health Care and Health Science centre, as well as interactive workshop for Y12 Health Scientist and some Y10 students. The workshop involved students conducting medical tests e.g. using ultrasound to check for growth plates and conducting ECGs.

Sports Relief

Year 10 and Year 12 students have raised over £150 for Sports Relief. They did this by organising a series of activities including a danceathon! All students wore red to show they supported the causes that Sports Relief was raising money for. Moriom Abdin, chair of the Committee Charity said “she was delighted with the students efforts and that there was a fantastic atmosphere in the school on the day.” The Charity Committee have so far nearly raised £500 this year for  various charities and have also donated food to the local food bank.

Working with St Joseph’s Hospice

Students from Mulberry UTC have spent the last 6 weeks working with St Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney as part of the challenge projects. Students were commissioned to research and create a presentation on why an Instagram page would benefit the Hospice. Students also created a social media strategy explaining how the hospice could easily create an Instagram Page. In order to do so students work with Robyn Carylson a community fundraiser at the Hospice. Students also had the opportunity to visit the Hospice and meet staff and patients.

One group of students were so inspired by the visit that they decided to create an animated video for the Hospice to use on their website and social media. Digital Media students drew the content for the video, added the sound and edited it to make an incredible video showing why the work of the hospice is so important.

Robyn Carylson and her team came to see the student’s final work during one of the challenge project sessions. They were absolutely blown away by the student’s presentation, posts and video and have commissioned them to complete another piece of work editing a video which will be on display at the Tate Modern.

The challenge project was a great experience for all the year 12 students involved and it was great to see the health students and creative students working together on a project for a local charity. They are very excited to continue working with the Hospice.

At the bottom of the page you will be able to view the animation created by our students for this presentation.

Letters from Arakan

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.
