Disneyland Paris 2012

On a dark, damp Friday evening at the end of March, myself, Miss Percival, Miss McMullan, Mr Endy, Mr Siddons and 44 students waited excitedly for their magical trip to begin. 
Travelling through the night we arrived at Disneyland Paris the following morning refreshed (some of us more than others depending on the amount of sleep that had been had!) and raring to go and meet Mickey and co.  We were greeted with a new sign at the entrance reminding us that the weekend we visited was the start of the 20th anniversary celebrations.

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.
