Literacy Links Parent Forum

On the evening of November 15th staff, parents and students meet together in the Library to talk and discuss year 7 Literacy at Holgate. Mr. Morgan, Mrs. Colman and other members of the English faculty were joined by parents to see what can be done at home to help improve Literacy skills in school.
 
The event was attended by lots of parents wanting to discover more about Literacy at Holgate. The event also gave students the chance to take home some guides and activities to be complete at home. Students are also encouraged to loan out books and resources to use at home with their parents. 

Year 3 and 4 Indoor Athletics

On Tuesday 6th November, Holgate hosted the annual Hucknall year 3/4 indoor athletics competition. Our year 10 leaders had the responsibility of leading and officiating in 6 field events and several relays, doing an outstanding and professional job. We had over 60 competitors and all seemed to have an enjoyable experience. Congratulations to all athletes and especially to the winners, Hillside.
