Ashington 150th Anniversary

Four Year 9 Student Council members attended the “Who, When & How” 150th Anniversary planning event with Mr Robinson at the Arch Workspace in Wansbeck Business Park on Tuesday 18th October.

They listened to a talk by a local historian who ran through the beginnings of the town. They then had their say on the proposed 150th celebration logo and offered their thoughts to Ashington Town Council members and local Ashington business representatives.

For their efforts they were rewarded with praise for their enthusiasm and ideas, alongside a very tasty buffet! All students reported that they were excited and looking forward to how AHS can get further involved with this event.
