Pupils at Smithdon High School kept a spring in their step all through winter after a lockdown physical fitness challenge saw them raise more than £500 for a mental health charity.
Two of the sectors of society most affected by the pandemic of the last year have been carers and school children, so for school age children who also have caring responsibilities at home, the last 12 months have been a perfect storm.
In an era when all school children are learning some unexpected life lessons, Year 9 pupils at Springwood High School in Kings Lynn have been taught one of the most valuable of all, as the entire year group has signed up for first aid lessons as part of their work towards the bronze level Duke of Edinburgh award.
Students and staff at Springwood High School in King's Lynn are celebrating after the January round of university place offers saw a record-high four pupils receive offers from Oxford and Cambridge.
This year, a record 11 pupils made it to the interview stage at the prestigious universities, and now four of those have received offers, two at each university.
Staff at St Clement’s High School have been doing their bit to support the well-being of students and ensuring they are not lacking in support despite the disruption caused by lockdown.
The headteacher of Marshland High School has praised his pupils for their dedication to learning even when school is shut as schoolchildren across West Norfolk break for half term today.
Students at West Norfolk Academies Trust secondary schools have been given a helping hand with lockdown learning courtesy of the Knowledge Organiser book system which is assisting remote schooling.
The schools in question – Springwood, St Clement's, Marshland and Smithdon – are benefiting from a system that was already planned for introduction before lockdown began, but which has proved to be an even wiser investment in the current pandemic climate since being rolled out last month.
Lockdown may have meant students have not been much in evidence recently at Smithdon High School in Hunstanton, but that does not mean the place has been quiet, as it has provided an opportunity to continue the overhaul of the school’s facilities and buildings.
Lockdown means schoolchildren across the country are not getting out and about as much as they are used to.
But pupils at Springwood High School in Kings Lynn are certainly not missing out on their daily exercise after the school set up an inter-year group fitness challenge to raise money for local charities.
