On Monday 2nd December the Year 12 Business group spent the day at Sherwood Pines Country Park as guests of The Forestry Commission. As part of the Cambridge Technical level 3 Certificate in Business course students have to look at two contrasting businesses in detail. One of the chosen businesses is The Forestry Commission. We looked at some of the projects being carried out by the Forestry Commission and met with their representatives.
The Holgate Bake off was very successful this week. It was even harder to judge with everyone making vegetable pasties to an extremely high standard. Mr Brown also wanted to get some of the Bake off action this week and competed against year 7,8 ,9,10 and year 11 pupils. Unfortunately he didn’t manage to get star baker.
