Students from the VI Form have been praised for their valuable input into the formation of the Swaffham Neighbourhood Plan.
Areas for improvement included repair of roads and pathways, increasing lighting, further green space, additional recycling facilities and a cinema.
Comments received from members of the Planning Committee included “these ideas should be taken on board as it comes from the youth who will be living with what we’ve put together” and “this is a terrific response, highlighting several things that could be done in the short and longer term which would help make Swaffham a more attractive town”.
Confidence, time management, organisational skills and self-discipline were just a few of the skills demonstrated by students, as they tackled part of their Performing Arts Exam.
They selected a script or piece of music which they adapted and made their own. This involved research; planning a rehearsal schedule and performing in front of a live audience.
It was smiles all round for the entrants to the Rotary Young Writer’s Competition.
Our budding young writers received certificates from the president of the Swaffham branch, Bill Muir, celebrating and promoting writing skills.
Students were tasked to produce a story in prose or verse of 500 words entitled ‘A Different Perspective’. Judges considered imagination, ability to engage interest & being able to master consistency in the power of argument.
