Sheffield Girls’ super summer
Our girls are back on site for the start of the academic year, and we’ve been hearing about their fantastic summers. Some of our pupils have been very busy so we thought we’d share a handful of the highlights.
Molly Shah, Kushi Gupta and Grace Mitchell all participated in the Teen Tech Awards. Molly and Kushi won their award for Think Food, an app they designed and implemented focussed on streamlining food waste. Grace gained a Gold award and got through to the finals with her Calm Collar, a dog collar designed to support anxiety and poor behaviour by playing different music.
Sapphire Billing’s beautiful wolf picture was shown at Art in the Park as a Young Artist, alongside 6 other Sheffield Girls’ pupils.
Carlotta Bailey won her age group in the Ashbourne Aquathon last month, completing a 50m swim and 600m run.
Year 13s Holly Styan and Lahari Paladugu undertook internships with the Institute of Economic Affairs over the summer.
Year 6 pupil Julia Hufton contributed 10% of Sheffield Girls’ overall total towards Beat the Street, a city-wide walking challenge.
Katia Gardner Thorpe has been selected as a finalist for the National Grid’s Voices For a Green Future competition, showcasing young people at COP26 voicing their thoughts about climate change.
Alice Pieters and Alice Carr attended a Rodolphus choir camp at Wellington College, Cambridge. They sang most of ‘Elijah’ by Mendelssohn as well as music from James Bond, Pharrell Williams and more.
Amelie Hillier was the youngest performer by two years in the National Youth Musical Theatre’s production of ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ this summer. They received an OffCom Commendation for the show, a real mark of quality.
Year 10 Olivia Strudwick and Year 13 Anna Jellinek performed with the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra at St John’s Smith Square, a very prestigious London venue.
Lucia Maturi finished 5th in the Scottish Girls U14 Open Championship which was held over three days at a very picturesque but extremely wet Stirling Golf Club.
What an incredible summer of success! We can’t wait to see what the girls do next.
