Summer School 2012 Day Seven: Conkers

Today we arrived at school really early, ready for our day trip to Conkers Outdoor Adventure Park. Outdoor! On the wettest and rainiest day that we’ve had, for the entire Summer School, we go on a trip where we are supposed to be outside!
 
We arrived at Conkers, and we were met by one of the rangers. We were supposed to be doing a 2 hour shelter building activity, but it was too wet and slippery, so instead we did some orienteering and some wicker weaving. It was really interesting, and it was a shame that we couldn’t put our new weaving skills into practice outside, but we can’t help the weather.

Summer School 2012 Day Six

After a four week break, we all arrived bright and early at 9am to see what the second week of Summer School would bring.First of all we had a visit and a talk from PCSO Gaynor Clements-Parker and PC Knighton. They told us all about the work of the police liaison team and how the Nottinghamshire Police force work very closely with schools to ensure that crime and, especially bullying, are kept at bay. They also showed us the different uniforms and equipment that PCSOs and Police Officers use.

GCSE Results Day 2012

Thursday the 23rd of August was GCSE Results Day for 2012, Year 10 and 11 Students came into school to collect their GCSE exam results there were many nervous youngsters around hoping to get the results they needed for their future studies. Many of our students will go on to study at a college of their choice or will be coming back to Holgate in our sixth form or will be moving on into jobs that they want to do. 
 
We are very happy that a good number of our year 11 students have chosen to come and study in The Holgate Sixth Form next year.
