All of our year 7 pupils were invited to Monkseaton High School for a range of engaging activities today.
We decided that we would take advantage of the close proximity of Monkseaton High and walk there. Although icy in places, it was bright and brisk and a very pleasant and refreshing walk for a Friday afternoon. We arrived in high spirits - ready for some challenges and were warmly welcomed into their impressive building. The pupils were immediately struck by the incredible design and open nature of the school.
Staff from MHS had planned fun sessions for the afternoon, including: PE, ICT, Science, Business and Cooking, each with a hint of maths. There was even time for an afternoon snack, between sessions, in the canteen with refreshments provided.
Year 7 were fantastic: participating fully in all of the sessions and really appreciated the opportunity to visit MHS for this taster afternoon.
Thanks to staff for organising and delivering the event and to the students who supported in the sessions too.
