On Monday Blue 2 enjoyed one last educational visit for this academic year. We had great game of bowling and went on for a 2 course lunch together at Frankie and Benny’s. Using the local community for leisure purposes gives student’s the opportunity to develop important life skill’s.
Some students from across different key stages took part in this years Kwik Cricket completion that was held at the amazing Emirates ground in County Durham. The 9 students that went had the most amazing day from start to finish. They displayed outstanding sportsmanship as well as fantastic teamwork. Our school team won every single one of their games whilst having a brilliant time and making new friends.
Well done Keelman’s Way Kwik Cricket team.
During the Summer term the school council had a meeting some with Elizabeth Duke from South Tyneside Council. Elizabeth chatted with the school council members about the different food items they wanted on their BBQ.
The school council also organised a mocktail completion in school and a BBQ for everyone to enjoy. Michelle from the kitchen had such a hard job choosing 1 winner for the mocktail she had to choose 2! The winners were Bobby Williams and Charlie Oliver. The winning mocktails were made on the bbq day for everyone to try.
A Hawaiian theme was the order of the day with everyone wearing their colourful garlands. Staff and students sat together and enjoyed their lunch in the sun. A fantastic time was had by all.
Post 16 pupils celebrated their achievement in style this week for their prom.
They were given the red carpet treatment at The Little Haven Hotel and partied the afternoon away.
Staff and pupils spent the morning being pampered by having their hair and make up done before leaving school at lunchtime. Staff and pupils looked fabulous.
The Little Haven provided a hot buffet lunch and mocktail’s before they were awarded medals and certificates for their achievements this year.
It was an especially important day for our leavers this year. They had the opportunity to stand up and read out a speech to their friends and staff.
A wonderful afternoon was had by all
A huge thank you to The Little Haven Hotel for once again providing an excellent venue and giving our pupils a day to remember.
The whole school joined together for our sports day and worked very hard around different activities which included, athletics, golf, races, judo and obstacle courses. We had the huge inflatable slide on the field which was enjoyed by everyone. Bikes were available to ride and the chance to cool off with water guns where pupils had the chance to soak pictures of the staff!!
Pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the morning.
Lots of fun had by all.
Another fantastic turn out for our School Fair this morning. A bonus the sun was shining too!
