All students have successfully completed the skiing week without injury! All have arrived safely back in the hotel. As a note from the three staff we want to let it be known how brilliant all the students have been. We have been nothing but impressed by them all week! At no point has any student complained, or moped everyone of them have been positive and fantastic throughout. They have been a credit to themselves, their parents/carers and the school. We are three very proud teachers.
On Tuesday 21st February 2017, The Holgate Academy Futsal team represented Ashfield (having not lost a game in qualifying as area Champions) against seven other areas: Broxtowe, Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Nottingham City (1), Rushcliffe, Newark and Sherwood, and Nottingham City (2).
The amazing team from The Holgate Academy remained undefeated in their 7 games and won the competition hosted by Nottingham University therefore becoming County Champions! A great achievement for our Year 7 boys Futsal team!
Students enjoyed another brilliant days skiing in good conditions through the morning and afternoon sessions. The evenings activity offer of bum boarding was gratefully rejected by the group in favour of a supermarket visit where upon arrival back at the hotel it had become apparent that the group had all chipped in to buy lovely gifts for staff as a very kind gesture of their gratitude.
The group all left for dinner and afterwards found our way to Haralds cafe where the group were offered their choice of pastry or drink with most electing for a hot chocolate. The group then enjoyed some free time before bed with some joining the hotel ran disco and the remainder watching football with staff before a slightly later bed. Hopefully despite the restricted sleep all will arise fresh and prompt for their final day on the slopes.
