What makes us different?
Duke of Edinburgh
Ghausia Girls High School has initiated a partnership with the local Youth Hub and are in the process of registering pupils to take part in the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ Awards.
These awards are a great way of expanding pupil’s skills and allow them to build on their confidence. This scheme will equip pupils with key tools which will help prepare them for the life they will face outside school. It will also test pupils courage and determination.
All pupils at Ghausia were given the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike. This encouraged pupils to develop their skills and become confident in their own abilities.
It also allowed pupils to enjoy learning outside the classroom environment. Bikeability is the only nationally recognised cycle training award scheme. The training takes place away from traffic in a controlled location. They are taught and assessed by qualified instructors. Pupils receive the certificate of Bikeability Level 1.
Fire Safety Ambassadors
The school is working in partnership with Lancashire Fire & Rescue service. Pupils were selected to work closely with the Fire Service and trained to become Fire Ambassadors.
Awareness within the Asian community was raised by flagging safety issues in the home when cooking which was organised within the school. They are given a voice and engage with professionals to make their society better.
