Brand new school project
Students from The Petersfield School, a Navigate client, were among thousands taking part in My 2012 in Portsmouth last Friday.
Some 4,500 pupils from East Hampshire schools attended the grand final of the event, braving the summer showers at the Lord Mountbatten Centre.
The My 2012 project was created by the Education Improvement Partnership (EIP), formed from 44 maintained schools and Alton College, and chaired by Stuart Woods, from The Petersfield School. The aim was to improve the life chances of schoolchildren; and priorities included raising standards in English and maths, developing opportunities for gifted children, and closing the achievement gap for disadvantaged youngsters.
Gareth Gammon and Neil Pafford from Navigate, who created the new branding and website for The Petersfield School last summer, were invited to the event.
Stuart Woods, who is Vice Principal of The Petersfield School, said that Navigate’s attendance was greatly appreciated. "It meant a lot to me for you to see this project complete.
"It’s a testament to Navigate’s branding that My2012 is in the school’s (and public) consciousness and I’m delighted to say top of the Google searches too!
"To be aligned with London2012 yet remain distinct is a real balance … again achieved because of your work. The website has received countless expressions of praise and rightly so. It stands as a quality piece of work with lots of content.
"I reflect on how far we’ve come in less than a year in building this brand and impacting so positively on children’s experiences of the year. Tremendous!”
At the My 2012 grand finals on Friday, the schools were divided into five clusters, representing the five continents: Europe (Mill Chase & Hollywater), Australasia (Bohunt, Liphook & Liss), Asia (Petersfield), Alton, Amery Hill (Africa), Eggars and Treloars (Americas).
The schools joined forces for a dance performance and then competed for medals in track and field events.www.my-2012.co.uk
