This week a group of very excited W.A. Year 7 students took part in the America's Cup Endeavour Program. "The America's Cup is teaming up with some of the biggest names in the marine industry to launch an ambitious youth education and sailing program - the AC Endeavour Program - with a focus on leaving a sporting legacy in Bermuda...

"There are three main pillars to the Endeavour Program: First, and most importantly, an educational initiative: the America's Cup Endeavour Program will enable students across Bermuda to learn more about sailing through a cross-curricular STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Education Program...Second: Youth Sailing - quite simply this is aimed at providing an experience in boats for kids aged between 9-12 years old, in Bermuda...Third: College Sailing internships with ORACLE TEAM USA" (America's Cup, 2017).

The WA family are especially grateful for this amazing opportunity for our students. Follow The America's Cup Endeavour Program on Facebook and visit their website to learn more.

 

Happy Birthday to Nyla Parker, Warwick Academy Year 2 student!!

The love of cats and the act of philanthropy led to a wonderful gift for the SPCA. Mum, Mrs. Parker, said, "Nyla donated $400 from her 7th birthday party. She adores cats and wanted to donate rather than receive gifts."

This wonderful act of kindness was greatly appreciated by the SPCA. We hope you had an AMAZING birthday!!

In Category C, Elizabeth Madeiros [WA Student] and her mount Mr Bentley was first with two clear rounds. Casey Truran riding De Le Vega was second" (The Royal Gazette, 2017).

Warwick Academy congratulates those students who took part in the gymnastics competition, as well as all of the other competitors - everyone showed dedication and determination for their sport.

"The Bermuda Gymnastics Association [BGA] hosted their sixth annual International Gymnastics Challenge at the National Training Center in St. David's.

The BGA welcomed approximately 86 gymnasts from the United States and Canada for a weekend of gymnastics with the competition showcasing Bermuda's very best gymnasts ages 6 to 22.

Visiting teams included Flyers Academy from Hammonton, New Jersey; Gym Nation from Riverhead, New York; Hill's Gymnastics from Deer Park, New York; KMC, from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania; NYC Elite from New York City, New York; Sagamore Gymnastics from Syosset, New York; and Westys Gymnastics from Franklin, New Jersey" (BerNews, 2017).

The partnership between Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy and Warwick Academy continues to thrive. Close links have been developed with both sets of students by weekly visits when books, games and activities are shared.

During the recent Primary production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Warwick Academy, money was raised from the sale of refreshments. The students decided to donate half of the proceeds to the Friends of Hope Academy.

Mr. Ifor Hughes, President of Friends of Hope Academy, received the cheque from some of the Warwick Academy Year 6 students. Mrs. Julie Lynn and Mrs. Jill Finnigan are delighted with the growing partnership and have seen many benefits for both sets of students.
