Tavistock College Amnesty Walk 2018
The Amnesty International Group at Tavistock College organised a ‘Walk for Rights’ event on Sunday 28th January. Students, parents and staff raised money by walking just over 12 miles from George’s Junction Park and Ride, through Plymouth to the Hoe and back again. Through this event we raised over £250 that Amnesty International will use to help make sure people around the world are afforded the basic human rights they deserve.
Georgia, a student at Tavistock College wrote about the event; ‘We walked a total of 12 miles. We were walking because of human rights. We were raising money to support people who have no rights. For example if someone in this country said they didn’t like the Prime Minister’s idea it’s their opinion but in some countries they would be punished for saying their point of view. I really enjoyed walking; the view at the Hoe was beautiful’.
Georgia, a Year 7 student wrote that ‘I think it’s important to raise money for people that don’t have anything so that they can live a normal life just like us’.
Rebecca, also in Year 7 said ‘We did this to raise money for Amnesty International, which helps people with inequality. I hope my contribution helps’.

9th Degree Theatre Company – Mythfits
The 9th Degree Theatre Company shared their first production in The Play Station Studio theatre at Tavistock College this week. Established by Year 12 students at the college the company sets out to ‘tell old tales to new folk’ and launched their company with their self-created piece ‘Mythfits’. The piece of musical theatre was entirely crafted by the students with each taking on performance roles as well as marketing, script writing, costume and stage management. Head of Creative Arts at the college, Eva Pearson said ‘Im so impressed by their creative work ethic, they have tirelessly improvised, scripted, choreographed, composed and created a hugely enjoyable, very funny community piece. I can’t wait to see what they go on to do after such a promising start!’. The company’s next venture will see them reworking so classic scripts in the Summer.
