Ashfield Youth Parliament Elections

This week students from the Holgate Academy have been in the process of voting in a member of the Youth Parliament. Over the last week every student in the Academy had the opportunity to vote and be part of the democratic process that is so important to core British values. 
 
The voting followed presentations in Assembly and discussion in form groups around the candidates and their manifestos. Holgate has a special interest in the candidates as one of our own Aimee Johnson is standing.

Holgate Ski Trip - Bardonecchia 2015

After nearly two years of planning and preparation a group of 18 students and 3 members of staff finally embarked on this year’s ski trip to Bardonecchia in Italy.

The trip itself started with promise as snow began to fall the week before our departure throughout Italy with 60cm predicted in the week before we were scheduled to depart.

On Saturday morning the group gathered outside the Nabbs entrance to the school, to say goodbye to parents and carers and hello to the slopes.
