Chef Julie has tasked Junior School Eco Club with an important mission. She needs their help to reduce waste in the kitchen. Eco Club members have readily accepted the challenge and have been busy thinking of changes that could be made. Chef Julie would also like them to create a display to raise awareness of Hollygirt’s commitment to reducing plastic, food and other types of waste.
Pupils in Year 10 are back in school today following their work experience placements last week. Each year, these placements prove to be an invaluable experience for pupils to experience life beyond the classroom and to mix with adults in a professional capacity.
Kitty in Year 11 has been offered a Saturday job at the vets where she did her placement in Year 10. They said they were about to advertise but that she had done such a good job, they wanted to offer it to her first. She has accepted it for the summer and they are not now looking for any further applicants. Fantastic!
Thank you to Mrs Twomey for all the hard work involved in making these work placements possible and to the following companies for providing our pupils with the experience:
Nottingham Climbing Centre
Queens Medical Centre
Edwalton Primary School
All Answers Ltd
Nottingham City Council
Nottingham Treatment Centre
Guy Phoenix Interiors
Senior School pupils have been raising money for Sport Relief this week. Yesterday, pupils ran the ‘Sport Relief Mile’ in their Games lesson. Today things got really crazy with an array of wacky hair and sports tops. Pupils have been taking it in turns throughout the day to cycle on the stationary bike outside Mrs Hutley’s office. We’re aiming to reach 120 miles by the end of the day (Nottingham to London)!
Well done to Alex who has been crowned ‘Wacky Hair Winner 2018’.
Thank you to David Lloyd for kindly lending us an indoor bike and to Mrs Howlett for organising all the activities.
