Stargazing at Holgate

On Wednesday 13th March 2013, Holgate hosted a stargazing event with the Nottingham Astronomical Society. The astronomers brought four professional telescopes along to set up in the school grounds and we were really lucky to have beautifully clear skies for the majority of the night. 
The turnout was fantastic and students and their families were able to see the craters on the moon, stars, Jupiter and 3 of Jupiter’s moons. Inside experts were on hand to answer astronomy related questions and we even had a real meteor to hold.

Dragons Den Competition 2013

Year 10 PD students for Holgate attended the 4th dragons den style competition run by Nottinghamshire police on Friday 8th March 2013. This year students had to plan a lesson for year 7 students about cyber bullying. The team represented the school brilliantly giving an excellent presentation to the dragons. Well done to Meagan Wallis, Jack Rawdin,  Jake Lidgett, Delaire Robinson and Callum Kimbley.
