Today is the International Day of Happiness when people around the world aim to appreciate the people and things in life that bring true happiness.
These Year 8 students are making use of the day to enjoy their drama class (their own interpretation of the Three Pigs ‘with a twist’). We can certainly all agree they look very happy during their learning! #InternationalDayOfHappiness
Today is the International Day of Happiness and there is nothing that makes most of us smile more than tasty, well prepared food! Students in Year 9 have been busy in the kitchen learning about all the ingredients and preparing these wonderful dishes traditionally served to celebrate Chinese New Year.
This feast is extremely important to the Chinese and all family members are expected to gather together. If for some reason they cannot, the rest of the family will leave their spot empty and place a spare set of utensils for them. Food is something that the Chinese take great pride in and lots of care and thought is put into the menu for their most important holiday of the year. Our students can be proud of the excellent meals they produced and the knowledge they gained.
International Women’s Day did not go unmarked at TNHA. A group of our Year 10 girls were invited to take part in a conference with students from Lynn Grove Academy & University Technical College Norfolk, attended by local influential women from both the public and private sectors, at The Nest in Norwich. Guest speakers shared their inspirational stories as well as focusing on the future of women's careers.
The second part of the day was organised by Vattenfall a large international company who are investing in the renewable energy sector here in Norfolk. The girls took part in a range of activities, including team building and tasks based around how North Sea Wind farms can be sensitively and effectively used to deliver renewable energy and economic growth for Norfolk. Overall it was an exception day, our students, the next generation of inspirational women, thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic opportunity and were a credit to the academy.

Very many thanks to everyone who took part in our 'non uniform day' and paid a £1 to the charity. Great effort!
Nestled amongst the books down at the local town library recently, was a wonderful and rather ‘tasty’ looking art exhibition of cakes (the non-edible kind) made by our Year 7 students.
During their study of the American Artist, Wayne Thiebaud, best known for his paintings of food and everyday objects, the students produced their own versions.
They learnt how to design and construct a 3D ‘cake’ using mediums such as paper mache, tissue paper, beads, clay etc. The colourful and incredibly realistic looking exhibits were admired by visitors and showed off the talents of our young group of artists.
Drama students eagerly jumped aboard our mini bus bound for the Theatre Royal, Bury St. Edmunds, to see the impressive new production of the famous comedy ‘Bouncers’.
Written by Jon Godber, the play uses monologues and flashbacks to give insight into its characters who struggle with the moral dilemmas that arise from their job, as well as the disillusionment that this causes towards their culture.
The students in Year 10 will use this play as part of their GCSE Drama Study Course.
This quote found in one or our corridor encourages students to be determined and focused to achieve success.
Art students at the academy were lucky enough to visit the Curwen Print Study Centre in Cambridge recently. Established as an educational Fine Art Printmaking charity in the late 1990s the Centre has established a reputation for excellence in its field. Our budding artists worked on two different printing techniques being dry point and lino printing with the theme being ‘natural forms’. The work they completed will make up part of the examination coursework.
