Brexit Posted on: 7/12/2017

Brexit

It seems like Brexit is always dominating the headlines; but with only a week left to strike a deal with the EU the true extent of the UK's potential difficulties are beginning to show.   Earlier this week the UK was on the brink of signing a deal which ensured a ‘soft’ Brexit when a phone call to Theresa May from  the DUP (the Irish political party currently in coalition with the Conservative party) disrupted an otherwise tranquil meal between the PM and the President of the EU.   It seemed that the DUP were not accepting the proposed conditions. These conditions threatened to install a ‘hard’ border between the UK and the Republic of Ireland ( who are still a part of the EU). Halting the talks of Brexit, Theresa May is now forced to compromise the terms of our departure. Instead of negotiating for a united response, she has requested an extension to the signing of the Brexit treaty, and will attempt to devise another plan in which the UK emerges in a more positive light. For there to be any hope for the future, our Prime Minister must compromise, negotiate and change her approach towards the difficult matters at hand.   But how does the Brexit deal relate to EGA life? How can we learn from Theresa May’s challenges? Following exam week, it is important for us to reflect on what went well as well as consider ways we can adapt and improve. Our mock examinations were an opportunity to learn the different tactics and techniques which will secure us the best results we can achieve, and much like the Brexit negotiation, it’s time for us to learn to compromise. Only this time it is between our leisure time and our studying!   For many of us it is our last chance to obtain the results and the place we want to hold in the future; but unlike the Brexit deal, there is no extension offered. Therefore it is important for us to change the way in which we approach our learning and the difficulties we may face in the next few months. If we are able to do that, then when it comes to May (the month) our exams might not seem quite so ‘hard’.
November - Make a Change! Posted on: 20/11/2017

November - Make a Change!

The days leading up to The UK’s Children In Need Day are times for reflection and solidarity. It's the time when we begin to consider the bigger issues in society and what we can do (as a collective and as individuals) to make a change.   In the UK over 3.7 million children live below the national poverty line, which is over a quarter of all children. 1.7 million of these children are considered to be living in severe poverty. A household living in severe poverty earns circa £8.25 per person a day or less. This is quite shocking when we consider the fact that the living wage is now set at £9.15 an hour in London. And this is only concerning poverty; we could also discuss the other disadvantages that some children in the UK are forced to endure (e.g. disability, illness, abuse).   The UK is considered one of the world's most advanced nations, being part of G7 (along with the 6 other largest economies in the world, representing more than 64% of the global net wealth), yet some children's basic needs are not being met. The situation may sometimes seem insurmountable, but there are many things we can do for those in most need of help.   We can begin with giving a pound this Friday towards the Children in Need Campaign for our non-school uniform day! There are also many things outside of school that can be done. For example donating clothes, or donating directly to the BBC's Children in Need charity. There are two donation points around Angel (only a few shops apart): Oxfam and Cancer Research. These shops are also, incidentally, always looking for volunteers. Not only will you be helping the local community, you will also directly improve the life of a UK child. You can genuinely make someone's life better and the change begins with you!
