Kirk Balk Christmas Meal

Yesterday was a fabulous day! Pupils arrived at 9 am to start preparing the food for their Christmas dinner. After 3 hours of chopping carrots, scoring sprouts and peeling potatoes we were ready!


Students then waited to greet guests at the entrance with a glass of coke or lemonade and invited them into the seating area to await the meal. After a starter of soup or melon, guests and students had a marvelous meal with all the trimmings, followed by homemade chocolate orange cheesecake!


Once the meal was over, the pupils cleared the tables and chatted with the guests. Guests included, Mrs Moxon, parents and Mrs Hall (an elderly lady from the local community who the pupils invited along.) Here is a card she sent us to say thank you!




Year 9 Elements 

Today pupils in Year 9 put Mr Sugden (the PE teacher in Kes) on trial for cruelty to children. The pupils formed the prosecution team and counter argued all of the defences’ points. They did a great job. Byron was fantastic as the judge too. All pupils are writing their own prosecution report too.
