On Friday 30th June, 45 Hollywater leavers and their guests arrived in style for an evening of fun, frivolity and friendship. Pupils were welcomed to the Prom with a drink of fizz and had a group photograph taken. The girls were presented with a single white rose as they entered the Hall and then they all took their seats for a 3 course meal, whilst Rock and Pop, the live entertainment, sang.
After the meal the celebrations were notched up by the vibrant sounds from the band of Ed Sheeran, Adele and Katy Perry. The leavers together with their guests danced and danced, enjoying every moment of their final soiree at Hollywater School.
What an Experience!
This Summer Term all the pupils in 4A went on independent Work Experience for a week. They went to a wide range of placements including: Bird World; Adam Gibson Tree Care; AutoDan, Café Rafters; Bright Bricks; Absolute Autos; Deadwater Valley Trust, Fine Cuts; Rock and Pop Foundation. Their activities included assisting with: tree surgery; car repairs; Lego model building; nature reserve perseveration and maintenance; music tuition; hairdressing; food preparation and waiting at tables.
Work Experience is organised by the school and provides a great opportunity for pupils to get a taste of different occupations. All the pupils said they enjoyed and learnt from their Work Experience. The reports from employers were very positive about our pupils with many areas of the pupil’s work marked as ‘good’ or ‘excellent’.
At least one of the pupils been offered a summer job!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the employers for providing our Year 10 and 11 pupils with Work Experience.
At the end of June KS3 attended the Alton Live! Cultural Arts festival at Eggars School in Alton. We had a great time and accessed lots of different activities .Class 3A particulary enjoyed the African drumming workshop .
