Sundae Friday: Hot Chocolate Friday Week 21

This week’s Sundae Friday winners were Jake, Neave, Libby and Nathan. The students were all commended for a range of things including: being conscientious; making a fantastic transition from another school; being an all-round great student and more. They were a fantastic group of students and great company, I enjoyed listening to all of their thoughts about Stokesley School as well as their views on pets! It was also great to see that Jake managed to squeeze his ice-cream in before going home with some of the sorest eyes I’ve ever witnessed on a hayfever sufferer – well done Jake!

Sundae Friday: Hot Chocolate Friday Week 18

This week’s Sundae Friday winners were Holly, Tilly, Harriet, Izzy and Lucy. As our last nominees of this half term, the girls were all commended for their attitudes to school, dedication and commitment to their tutor groups. It was fantastic to hear their views on school and future ambitions, as well as watch them devour their ice creams!

This week’s Sundae Friday winners were Cam, Maisie and William. These students were nominated by their tutors and Heads of House for: always being the best they can be; being an excellent student in all aspects of life; and having an excellent work ethic and attitude. We were a small group today due to assessments and absence preventing others from coming, but it was a pleasure to meet them nonetheless!

Sundae Friday: Hot Chocolate Friday Week 16

These students were nominated by their tutors and Heads of House for: having a real ‘can-do’ attitude; being ‘just fab’; being a hardworking and kind individual; having an excellent attitude and getting involved in all school activities; and being a fantastic role model and ambitious young person with a wonderful attitude. Again, the weather wasn’t necessarily conducive to ice-cream, but it went down well nonetheless!

What does Zoe mean?

7Y3 discovered it means life when Elaine Dunning from the charity ‘Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice kindly came to their lesson to explain what the charity does.

She was here to receive a donation, raised by a group of girls from the class, their mission was to make a difference. Neave Hines, Lydia Allen, Phoebe English, Hollie Hardie and Bethany Hill held a cake sale in school and managed to raise £100 (to be divided between Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice and RSPCA). Well done girls – mission achieved!

Sundae Friday: Hot Chocolate Friday Week 15

This week’s Hot Chocolate Friday winners were Dalton, Sofia, Bethany, Ben and Ben. These students were nominated by their tutors and Heads of House for: trying their best at everything; having all round excellence; being a good motivator for the tutor group and always smiling; being hard-working, pleasant, mature and just ‘getting on’; and being very good at rugby as well as modest yet outstanding! To kick-off what we hoped would be a continued spell of sunny weather, we have changed ‘Hot Chocolate Friday’ to ice-cream sundaes on what will now be known as ‘Sundae Friday!’ for the duration of the summer term. It’s a shame it was actually raining and rather cold, but the students enjoyed them anyway!
