Bethany Caine Wins Gold at Gymnastics Championships

A massive congratulations goes out to Bethany Caine R/MWA. Bethany competed in the Derbyshire county gymnastics championships last weekend and performed in numerous events. After a gruelling programme of events she eventually came away with 5 gold medals and a cup. She was awarded all around gold and was also level 5 champion of the day!
 
This is a wonderful achievement and is a reward for the hard work and dedication that Bethany puts in on a daily basis. As a gifted sportsperson competing at high level Bethany will now join an elite group within the PE department at the Holgate Academy and become one of our ‘Holgate Sport Star’s’. 
 
We are very proud of her!

The Holgate Academy Race for Life 2016

On Thursday 16th June Holgate hosted the fourth annual Race for Life, staff and students ran, jogged and walked together for this amazing cause. With a bit of luck the rain stopped and we was treated to a spot of warm sunshine for the event. For those that came to cheer us on they could spend their money on our cake stall and the art stall. There was also a bouncy castle and inflatable slide to have fun on. 
 
Congratulations to Fynn Lithgow who won for the boys and to Shauna Wainwright who won for the girls. Staff winners were Mr Brown and Ms Cousins.
