The staff are feeling a little ‘Christmassy’ at TNHA today wearing their seasonal jumpers in aid of Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day!
Our Year 9 students led the appeal for the Swaffham Foodbank this Christmas. They have spent their spare time fundraising to buy provisions as well as encouraging donations.
We are proud of their commitment to those less fortunate.
When the school day is over for some, there is plenty of activity in our Performing Arts Facility. Around 30 Junior school students along with 25 of our own have been ‘treading the boards’ at the weekly Drama Club. Learning confidence and teamwork skills through improvisation and performing sketches, these young people have enjoyed working together. Some of the quotes from the youngest include “It’s been great to perform on a big stage and work with scripts” & “We meet new people, it is fun doing plays with them”. The older students have been just as complimentary adding “they are great to work with, always so energetic” & “they are really enthusiastic”. Building on the success of their collaboration, students are working towards a performance at Easter - something we all look forward to!
Poppy Sandford-More, Year 7, was the proud winner of the Academy Christmas Card Competition.
Her wonderful artistic creation was sent to all local schools and contacts with our good wishes for the Season.
Well done Poppy!
