Emmanuel House is a Nottingham based charity that provides support for the homeless and vulnerable. They currently serve 60-100 hot meals a day. Student Voice at Holgate decided to support their “Bringing the Harvest Home” campaign asking for 10 basic food items they could use in their service. Staff and students were able to make donations of tins and packets of food during the week commencing Monday 13th October. There was a competition for the tutor groups that collected the most items.
Year 11 Food technology students demonstrated their technical skills this week for their final making assessment which counts towards their GCSE grade. Alex, Cloe, Lauren and Hollie demonstrated their cake making and decorating skills which could compete with top chefs. Fallon took inspiration from the Great British Bake Off to show creative flair in producing a fabulous patterned swiss roll.
Over the past 5 weeks we have welcomed year 6 students from Linby, Beardall, Edgewood, Hawthorne,Broomhill, Leen Mills and National primaries to the Holgate Academy. These students have been given the opportunity to take part in some Trampolining and Table Tennis sessions, being coached through basic skills and competition formats. Students from all schools have worked tremendously hard to learn and perfect skills and have supported one another throughout the sessions.
