Christmas Jumper Day - Friday 15th December 2017
For a £1 donation, students may wear a Christmas jumper to school on Friday 15th December. The rest of their uniform must be worn correctly. If they do not own a Christmas jumper they may wear a Christmas tie, Christmas socks or a small Christmas badge instead, again with the rest of their uniform being correctly worn. Money raised will be donated to charity.

Ski Trip Day 3: Ice Dancing

Loads of progress today. One group heading down black runs. Another group hitting the top of the mountain and everyone else already on the greens. Ice skating was brilliant with loads of props helping entertain everyone. Dom and Tyler resembling blades of glory. Amy and Megan in synchro and Hazel and Emily on the floor giggling again. We have figured out how to stop ears popping. No, not swallowing or chewing, but eating cheese upside down (if that works Louis that's genius).  Tom has requested whether the first aid kit can cure 'ski confidence' issues and Jacob makes the first ever 720 crate spin during dancing in ice.

Ski Trip Day 2: First Day Skiing

First day skiing. Sore legs, cold ears and giggle juice. Some good skiing in very cold conditions. -12 was cold enough, but a very strong wind made it feel much colder. Amazingly, very little moaning. Hazel and Emily must have had too much coke at lunch as the giggle juice kicked in (see video) Josh asked a mate if black runs had black snow??? Louis only tends to fall if he can take Hazel down with him too, Tom impresses in his role as Chewbacca and popcorn for a starter at tonight's restaurant. Happy days.

Ski Trip Day 1: The Adventure Starts Here

The adventure starts here...
Ski trip has landed safely. Just about to do the final leg on the coach.

P.S It's snowing.
All checked in, some have already crashed, tired from clocking over 5000 miles. Very proud to be associated with Holgate students as the comments from all areas has been nothing put praise.  The shopping trip was interesting. The boys are stacked up with fizzy drinks, the girls with baguettes and fruit and Luke loving filling a trolley 4 times his size.
