VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Partnership in the community

It’s been a busy half term for our young people and the community. In early November, Mr Orr and Gav from the RAF did a tour of the primary schools putting the Year 5’s through their paces with a range of team work exercises.

Team Extreme, our resident horticultural club, travelled to Harrogate Pavilions to present their green space design for Kingsway North at the Green Plan It Challenge. Although not victorious, they did us proud and the experts commented on their superb presentation skills.

CLIC, our student community group, were recently nominated and in fact won the Community Champions Award at the Lord Mayor of York Shine Awards. In an evening filled with young people’s achievements, their hard work and commitment was recognised and this is fully deserved.

The Christmas Fayre organised by the Friends of Canon Lee was a huge success. With many festive stalls and competitions, the Friends managed to raise a lot of money that will be put back into schools for projects involving our young people.

As part of the Christmas Fayre, Mr Orr ran a business enterprise competition for the primary schools. Three teams, Swag Santa’s, Christmas Devils and Money Magicians all had a stall with one aim—to make as much profit as possible! They were absolute stars and we look forward to seeing them again soon.

Mr. Wilson did a superb job of organising a Christmas dinner event, where students were able to invite their parents and grandparents in to school for a festive feast. Mrs Shipley and the kitchen team did an incredible job, as they do daily, in providing delicious food that everyone enjoyed.

We had the pleasure of hosting the Quadkids Athletics competition this half term also. We had over one hundred primary students from all over the city come and compete, with supervision and support from our excellent Year 8 Leaders.

We have also had a re-launch of the Student Council. Students across the school applied to be their form’s rep and elections took place. We’re delighted we have a very strong team ready and raring for 2017! In addition to the new Student Council, there are plans being drawn up for a fresh new approach to the House system within the school including house name changes, a new rewards structure and a competition calendar. More details to follow.
