Huge congratulations to Year 11 student Aidan Taylor who beat off some stiff competition from both Stowmarket High School and other local schools to gain an apprenticeship with Taylor Made Joinery. Aiden wants a shout out in particular to Mr Burgess, Mr Hawkins, Mr Andrews, Mr Duszynski and Mr Hullett for all the help and support he received from them.
Please make sure your child brings a drink to school, particularly in this lovely warm weather. Due to Covid-19 guidelines students are not able to use the water fountains. Drinks can also be purchased from Lilies during break and lunch time if they have sufficient funds on Parentpay.
Yesterday some year 7 students were invited to visit the newly renovated Regal cinema, a day prior to reopening to the public. They received a tour of the 3 screens and the new 1936 cafe. The students were tasked with redesigning and repurposing the old ticket office, which had been a key feature of the cinema throughout its history. The photo shows them behind the new design as a food serving counter. This was a great opportunity for the students to work collaboratively on a local community project and to develop their teamwork and communication skills. David Harris (Regal manager) and Claire Foreman (Mixbrow Constructuon) were really impressed with the team's attitude and the final design….so much so that they all got certificates and some free movie tickets!!
The year 11 football team were given the opportunity to represent the school one final time on Monday. It was not the result they wanted against Stowupland but the boys still really enjoyed playing for the last time, man of the match was Tom Williams.
