Ski Trip 2017 Blog Day One

After a rainy/snowy started we finally set off (a little later than planned) but the trip to the airport was otherwise smooth with everyone taking the chance to relax a little after the early start. When we got to the airport everyone took the opportunity to grab a little extra breakfast from Burger King then we boarded. The flight was delayed a little but made up the time in the air. A smooth flight and a coach transfer later we arrived in resort. A busy bustle to collect the skis but all have now been fed and watered and are settling down for a good sleep. Roll on day 1 of skiing tomorrow!

The 9th Annual Holgate Family of Schools Choir Festival

The 9th annual Holgate Family of Schools Choir Festival was hosted at The Holgate Academy on Wednesday 8th February 2017.

8 schools combined to display their enormous talent in 2 massive concerts, which are proving over and over again to be a real highlight of our Events calendar.

Each school has tirelessly rehearsed and practised their chosen numbers, and  the choirs got up on stage in front of two capacity crowds to sing and dance and show off their tremendous voices. It takes  a special kind of courage to stand on a stage in front of a big audience, and perform, but every one of the children involved handled it like a pro.
