Science Week 2012

March 12th to 15th was Science Week and we celebrated it here at Holgate. We had science themed activities happening all this week. On Monday we did a science quiz during tutor time.

At the start of each lesson on Wednesday students was given a science related fact. On Thursday there was a science showcase on in Hillcrest Hall and the amphitheatre where students got the chance to watch a variety of demonstrations, take part in some demonstrations of their own and even watch a bit of Brian Cox if they fancied it! Science week this year has been awesome! We are looking forward to next year.

A Night with Jake and Elwood

On Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th of April 2012 The Holgate School put on a night of Blues, Jazz and Rock and Roll. Two fantastic audiences joined us for “A Night with Jake and Elwood” as we aimed to have them tapping their toes and dancing down the aisles.
 
Audiences were escorted back to the hazy days of the American music halls with some spectacular dance and music performances. “A Night with Jake and Elwood” allowed The Holgate School to showcase the finest talent in music, dance and drama our school has to offer.

Chilwell Army Barracks

On Tuesday April 24th, a group of Year 10 PE students headed to the Army Barracks at Chilwell to take part in a careers day. 
 
The aim was to take part in as many of the fitness and training activates that were available; these included a grenade run, a 30 minute training session led by army officers, shooting ranges and many obstacle courses.
 
The Students arrived at the barracks and were met by army officials who led them to the fitness and training arena where everyone got involved.
