It was a pleasure to once again host our Whole School Christmas Celebration Assembly in the Sports Hall on the last day of the autumn term. It was the only venue big enough to hold all students and staff, as well as the incredible 91 Hampers made up by VMG Tutor Groups to present to our guest of honour, Helen Hedges of Redcar Area Food Bank!
The student choir and band continue to grow in size, and did an excellent job entertaining us all, and inspiring us to join in with some of the singing too. Thank you to Mrs Emmett for organising the Christmas Assembly, alongside Mrs Trenholm, Mr Oseland, Miss Mitchell, Miss Horsefield inspiring the Choir/Band and finally Mr Loudon for IT and technical support.
Special thanks to 2015 Alumnus Angel Freer, who came back from Sunderland University to help with the musical endeavours. She is studying for a degree in Performing Arts, and ultimately wants to be a drama teacher!
Well done to all our Accelerated Reader Millionaire and Quiz award winners, Reading Buddies, Literacy Challenge winners, Spelling Champions, Reading Log Winners and many more. Sorry the ceremony was a bit rushed in Assembly yesterday! Thanks to Miss Shallow, Mrs McConnell for leading our Reading/Literacy Strategies so well.
Totals for all the Christmas Fundraising were amazing:
£244 raised with Christmas Jumpers for the Redcar Area Food Bank
£50 raised with Christmas Tree Bauble Messages for the RSPCA
£221 from the Enterprising Cake Sale by Business Students for Redcar Area Food Bank
Have a great Christmas, and a brilliant New Year!
