Good morning, welcome to Staindrop Academy, County Durham
Good Food Show
On Friday 17th June Miss Fowler and Miss Clement took a group of food technology students to the good food show in Birmingham. The students behaved impeccably as always, and were a credit to the school. Highlights of the day were of course seeing Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood in action.
Macmillan coffee morning
The Macmillan coffee morning hosted by Mrs Trottman, Miss Fowler and Miss clement was held on Friday 30th September, and £251.61 was raised. Lots of effort was put in by both staff and students, with the Year 9 health and social care group helping to organise and run the event. Food technology students also helped, baking lots of lovely treats. Winners of the cake competition were Amelia Wailes from KS3, Daisy Pickard from KS4 and Mrs Caulfield from the staff.ï»¿ï»¿
Year 7 created over 20 festive hampers to be delivered into the local community. Governors, Ken Dodd and Tracey Newby, came into school on Friday and had a very challenging job in hand to select the best hamper.ï»¿
Y7, Y8 and Y9 enjoyed their Carol Service at St Mary’s church in Staindrop. The service followed a traditional format and it was a lovely occasion. Reverend Steventon was very impressed with the exemplary behaviour of our students and the performers for their singing. ï»¿
