We are a Learning Community School!
There's always so much to be proud of at Huntingtower Academy. There is a sense of purpose for everyone whether you are the youngest or oldest pupil, the newest or longest serving staff member. Everyone has their place with us and we work hard to ensure that everyone understands and feels that sense sense of belonging. We are a community. We do, however, belong to more than one community and it was great to see the pupils and staff engage in a range of activities that demonstrate that. Last Friday, over twenty pupils and staff members took part in the Grantham Rotary Swimarathan. Swimming in relay for an hour always proves to be more gruelling than first thought but our teams persevered to break academy records and raise a lot of money for the charity - well done to all who took part. A really big thank you goes to Mrs Dilloway for organising.
We again joined with the local community to host a gymnastic competition at the academy on Tuesday afternoon. Mrs Bensley and her gymnastic team not only competed but also, with the help of our Sports leaders and ambassadors, acted as host to several local schools. It really was a fantastic event and we were really proud to see our teams win some medals. For some of our gymnasts, this was their first chance to represent our academy in an inter-school competition. Again, a huge well done to all who took part and for the organising such a fantastic event.
With only one week until half term, we look forward to meeting with parents and families at parents' evening next week. Appointment letters have been distributed; please check your child's book bag if you haven't as yet received yours. The studio will be hosting not only the Scholastic Book fair but also creche facility for academy pupils not attending the meetings with you.
