We understand that our students enjoy using the Internet and apps in a safe and positive way. Recently there have been changes made to the app ‘Snapchat’. Please find the recently released guidelines regarding the Snap Map feature:
This location based map allows users to see where in the country their Snapchat contacts are, as well as seeing location based photos and videos. The Snap Map shows a user’s Bitmoji, their cartoon avatar within Snapchat, pinpointed on a world map. Users can then zoom into the map to see the exact location of their friends.

Midpoint Centre students have been hard at work during their woodwork lessons showing off their skilled workmanship with wood. This included creating a jewellery box, 3D designs and creating an occasional table.
Last week our very own Mr Gray competed in the IPF World Powerlifting Championships in Minsk, Belarus. Congratulations to Mr Gray on becoming the World Champion! Find out about his experience below:
“I arrived in Belarus as part of the GB power lifting team for the ‘World Power Lifting Championships’. Belarus used to be part of the Soviet Union; Minsk is the capital of Belarus. It is a beautiful city and has a really modern feel.
I felt nervously confident about dethroning Jeffery Phillips of the USA; who was the current World Champion. On the day of the competition, I felt nervous but with the mind set of a winner. My goal is to be the best in all that I do. ‘Believe to Achieve’ which is coincidentally the Midpoint motto.
My training had been intensive and I felt strong and motivated. On that day I felt ready to take on the world and in training I had already lifted 240kg. I wanted that win and I wanted to break the existing World Record. I am David Gray and I am the new World Champion and Record holder. I did that! ”
It’s a world record 242.5kg deadlift!
Congratulations to Mr Gray. He has demonstrated that if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything that you want.
