MEA Latest News
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and are feeling refreshed.
Well done to all the Year 11s who took part in the revision sessions during the Easter holidays. Keep up the great work too!
On the last day of term a team of MEA Year 11s also hit the catwalk at the Concorde Hangar, Manchester Airport, in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Read more about this below and also see all our latest news in the Spring 2017 newsletter (link also below).
Runway on the Runway
Year 11 Students and MEA Principal and Vice-Principal took to the catwalk in March to represent the Academy and wow the audience for the legendary Runway on the Runway event, an amazing fashion show which raises funds for Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).
James Eldon, MEA Principal and wildcard model himself, alongside Miss McLaren, Vice-Principal, was thrilled that MEA had been invited to take part again and commented, “The MEA team has been such a credit to the Academy. The show is an incredible fundraiser which has such a huge impact on everybody involved whilst raising vital funds to support the brilliant work of TCT. Our students learn so much from taking part and gain a better understanding of fellow teenagers facing the most difficult of circumstances. The twist this year was to invite members of staff to also take part – I guess I should have seen this coming, but it certainly added to the fun of the evening! Thank you so much to the organisers, TCT, the MEA modelling team and everybody at the Academy who bought a cake, raffle ticket or organised fundraisers and rehearsals. Your hard work really paid off and contributed to another fantastic evening. Thanks in particular must also go to Miss Hall, Head of Year 10/11, for organising this once again within MEA, you are a legend!”
Sara Teixeira-Trindade, added, “Thank you so much to all the organisers, TCT, MEA, Trevor Sorbie, Harvey Nicholls and fashion brand Quiz who provided us with all our outfits. It was an experience we will never forget but the best part was knowing why we did it.”
Mirren Toner, one of MEA’s models said “It was such a privilege to take part. Hearing about the work of TCT really spurred us all on to do the best job possible and we raised a total of £2,000.”
