Cake Sale and Sponge the Teacher Competition
Friday 28th March 2017
Two groups joined together to host a joint event in order to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Students in KS3 were able to buy cakes while watching the Sponge the Teacher competition. People who successfully sponged the teacher won a free cake or a packet of sweets. We raised a total of £54.50 and sold all of the cakes. Feedback from both students and teachers was very positive and the event was a great success.
The Year 12 Contemporary Studies project was a huge success. The team of 5 managed to organise the event under a considerable amount of stress, as the planned date of the event was the end of term, two weeks away from the first plan. They encountered some setbacks the day before but managed to pull through to create a memorable event which the whole school and teachers got involved with which was a great way to end the school term.
The entire school went wild for the acts, St Bede’s and Byron’s very own teachers, which took the stage and stole our hearts. “I’ll never forget teacher lip sync battle!” – Chloe Prest Year 12
“It was the best event I have ever been to, I am proud to be apart of the St Bede’s and Byron catholic community”- Jacqueline Taylor Year 12
Overall, the event was a success raising over £60 for CAFOD.
Our pupils in 7A1 are taking part in a pen-pal exchange with a school in Mexico where Miss Hume used to work.
They wrote some beautiful letters to introduce themselves to their new Mexican friends and the package of letters arrived in Mexico a couple of weeks ago.We are now anxiously awaiting their replies and preparing our next set of letters to them, telling them all about life St Bede’s!
A group of 12 Year 10 pupils have been taking part in a programme run by the Brilliant Club. At the start of March, they visited Durham University for the day where they were given a tour of the University, experienced a University level tutorial and met their PHD tutor, who they have been working with in subsequent weeks. They have been learning all about Institutions and Economic Growth and have recently submitted an undergraduate level, 2,000 word essay. We are incredibly proud of their hard work and dedication to the programme and are thoroughly looking forward to celebrating their excellent achievements at their graduation event at the University in May.
