Year 8 Retribuam Day

To allow our students an opportunity to give back to their community, we held our Retribuam Day on Friday 10th December. The day is personalised to our students who were placed in groups of their choice and undertook a range of activities to raise money for our Year Group charity. The activities were varied and included a joinery class with our resident Joiner, Mr Clarke, who taught the students how to make a cross out of wood, safely using a range of tools and devices. Ms Davy’s session was a firm favourite; the sweet packaging class! Students weighed out and prepared lovely sweet cones, using a variety of sweets, and supporting different dietary requirements. Baking Christmas biscuits and buns was also extremely popular and Miss Prentice was more than happy to lead on this. Students designed and created Christmas cards from scratch using Mr Toombs’ knowledge, guidance and specialist printing equipment! We cannot fail to mention the fantastic rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” which the students wrote, performed and recorded with Mr Bromwich – we had this playing on loop all day! There were some outstanding entries in the Yule Log competition and, across the other side of school, Mr Rimoldi held a variety of sports related games and competitions and really got our students’ temperatures soaring!

The talent, dedication and passion shown by our Year 8s to give back to their community made us all extremely proud.
