The day started at 6 AM when we met at the staff car park and walked to Flowery Field train station. The journey to London was fantastic! Shania slept most of the journey whilst Tyler chatted to Mr McBurnie and shared a packet of biscuits.
The pupils were excited about the trip, but it was evident they were also nervous.

On Thursday 28th November, our top dance squad represented school at the Dance Festival at Samuel Laycock School.

Shania, Emily, Mark, Charleigh and Josh H danced like a real street dance crew, looking really fabulous in their new t-shirt, dance pants and cap combo's.

Their performance was polished and professional and the audience loved them!

The teachers who accompanied them - MIss Mac, Mrs Butler and Mrs Southall, were so proud of them all!

Special mention to our Year 9's - Shania and Mark.

On Friday 11th November pupils and staff from Van Zant group were invited to run a stall at Hyde Town Hall. The items for sale included lots of handmade poppies from felt and leaves. We also had some wreaths made from plastic as well as decorated picture frames and we managed to raise £25.

At 11.00am we joined members of the public for the 2 minute silence. It was a poignant moment and very powerful as the clock chimed.

In the reception area of Hyde Town Hall is a beautiful poppy display from pupils of Thomas Ashton School.

He talked about the photos he had brought along to share and also the badges which had been presented to him.

Whilst the KS3 football team have already played this season, Thomas Ashton School, in partnership with our sports providers Active Tameside, arranged a special football match for our KS2 pupils.
The match was played on the 18th October at the Medlock Leisure Centre against Parochial School, a mainstream primary school in Tameside.
The purpose for the football match was to give our younger pupils the opportunity to participate in something they would enjoy, at the same time promoting social skills, communication and teamwork.

In October 2015 Mr McBurnie Mrs Mac, Tyler Campbell and Shania Keegan embarked on a trip to Belgium to visit the battlefields. This was a huge success and was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Both Shania and Tyler then teamed up with two pupils from Hyde Community College who they met whilst on the Belgium trip and hosted a Remembrance Day event at Hyde Town Hall courtesy of Councillor Fitzpatrick. They were able to sell handmade poppies which pupils back at school had made and raised an incredible £48 for the British Legion.

I am sure you are all familiar with the charity we support called ‘Reuben’s Retreat’. An author called Victoria Trundle has written a story on behalf of the charity called ‘Reu the Rainbow Gnu’.

We were very lucky to have the chance for Victoria to come into school on Tuesday afternoon and read her story to some of our pupils. And as a special surprise, Victoria actually brought Reu with her to meet the children!
