All pupils in Year 8 of Springwood High School, a member of West Norfolk Academies Trust, work towards an ENDEAVOUR award and they have to complete nine challenges, including a range of extra-curricular activities, as well as achieving a 95 per cent rate of school attendance.
The students managed to complete all their challenges, including museum visits, charity fund raising and book reviews, despite the pandemic disrupting the last academic year for both them and staff involved.
“My students have been creative throughout and completed virtual tours of museums, completed online book reports, they have all attended their online lessons and achieved much more. I am very proud of them,” said Rebecca Davies, head of Year 8.
All the students who complete their award are able to take part in a huge celebration held at the school.
This year’s Springfest included a range of activities from a climbing wall and bucking bronco to bungee runs, go karting and an inflatable bowling alley. The students were also treated to a display of birds of prey and enjoyed a barbecue and ice cream as part of the treat.
“It has been a difficult year for all of us, with huge disruption because of the pandemic, but our students have been fantastic and adapted to everything that was thrown at them. We are all really proud of our award recipients and look forward to working with the new group from September,” said Miss Davies.
“We are also very grateful to our local Morrisons, Booker Wholesale, Russen and Turner, Dodman Ltd, and the King’s Lynn Rotary Club,” she added.
