Easter Celebration - March 2018
The Easter service was a great success with over 40 parents and visitors attending. The celebration started with the upbeat song ‘Jubilation’ with pupils from 3SC bringing Christian symbols and artefacts to the front altar. Reverend Julieann and Reverend Kalantha then shared with us the meaning behind lots of interesting items in their large Easter basket. This was followed by Alex Dearn reciting an Easter prayer. The main focus of the Service was on other Faiths’ religious festivals and how they compared to the Christian Easter Festival. Pupils shared with us information concerning Ramadan, Diwali and Hanukkah. We watched videos, listened to recordings and powerpoint presentations as well as admired some creative large sized candles decorated with key words, pictures and symbols from the four different faiths studied. The Easter Service not only served to remind us why we celebrate Easter but helped us understand the practices and customs of others, thus, hopefully increasing our respect, tolerance and awareness of other people, a key aim of the school. All the pupils involved helped make it a wonderful celebration and Reverend Julieann did comment that she felt it would be the best Easter Service she would attend this week.
Well done everyone!

They all had a day each in Sheet Metal where they learnt to cut, bend and weld metal and in the electrics department where they soldered wires and made all the parts for an Electrical Sub Assembly! One group had their electric jobs signed off and will actually be used somewhere in the world in a Mazak machine! They all had a fantastic week and learnt so much as well as thoroughly enjoying themselves, especially with all of the amazing food that was given to us every day! Chris Morris the Learning and Development Advisor from Mazak said it was an absolute pleasure working with our students and that they were an absolute credit to our school.

Remembrance Service - November 2017
The whole school joined together for a special Remembrance Service on Monday 13th November. The service started by a student lighting the Peace Candle followed by another student reading his own poem called ‘Remembrance’. Two main prayers were featured, ‘Lest we Forget’ and ‘We will remember’, the latter one involving the lighting of six candles to remember those that have, and are, affected by war. The choir sang two songs, one called ‘Remembrance’ and the other called ‘A wish for Peace’, with the last one sending tingles up our spines. Dave Waldron, from the Royal British Legion, recited the Exhortation and Kohima to signify the beginning and end of the two minutes silence and the service closed with a Blessing from Reverend Julieann. With the centenary of World War 1 next year, we hope to hold a special Remembrance service in the local church when we look forward to welcoming parents and the wider community to our commemoration.
