Non uniform Day for World Cancer Day

World Cancer Awareness day is Saturday 4th February 2017. In order to support this, students decided to hold our non-uniform day on Friday 3rd February. This is in aid of both Cancer Research and Macmillan cancer. Thank you so much for your support and all the contributions received for these two great charities to help fight cancer.  

Magic Minds Short Story Competition Winners

The Magic Minds Club arranged for a Halloween-themed short story competition. The winner was Noah George (Year 7) with Evie Allsop and Millie Martin (both also Year 7) as joint runners-up. All three have received certificates and prizes.
 
On Tuesday 24th January 2017 students at the Magic Minds club celebrated with Haggis at their Scottish themed session. Well done to all students who took part in the competition. We all are looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Futsal District Champions

The year 7 Futsal team travelled to Sutton on Monday 23rd January to take part in the district Futsal finals. The team were joined by manager Mr Lambert and assistant manager Mr Diamond on the touchline. The team played 5 games, winning 4 and drawing 1 to top the table and take the district Champions title. In pursuit of the title they scored 13 goals and conceded 0. The team will now progress to represent the district at the School Games.
 
Following the win both Mr Diamond and Mr Lambert refused to comment on being linked with the current vacancy at the City ground. However sources close to the pair believe that neither of them are interested in the role and both are likely to remain at Holgate. 
 
A huge congratulations to our Futsal team; Noah, Alfie, Riley, Ewan, Jacob, Jack and Charlie, we are all extremely proud.
