Well done to our team of staff who completed the Yorkshire Warrior Challenge and raised approx £1600 for the Academy house charities, Macmillan Cancer Support, Wakefield Hospice, Help for Heroes and the Make a Wish Foundation.
On 15th May, Miss Wedgwood, Mrs Ruane and Miss Beevers took six Year 8 students to the Recycled Fashion Show in Wakefield. They have been spending the past 2 months making an outfit from recycled materials. They used rubber tyres to create a corset, skirt, bag, shoes and jewellry, it looks fantastic! They came 2nd place out of 7 schools which is a fantastic achievement for them.
Mrs Hudders also took a group of dancers from Year 7-11 who were amazing, we made a big impact!
All the students were brilliant and presented themselves to the judges and other schools really maturely, we are very proud of them.
Here at Cathedral Academy we have just finished House Week number 5! The students have been as competitive as ever, working together and as a team to design and make recycled mascots in achievement time. Their task was to design and make a mascot out of recycled materials, getting points for design and range of materials used.
The other task was to create a story about their mascot or a poem about Recycling. All houses and house groups worked fantastically and enthusiastically to ensure their recycled products were the best and the outcomes looked fantastic. On the lunchtime during house week we held a Just Dance competition, where students and staff had to come down to the hall and compete against people from other houses for top place, they gained points for attending the activity and points for coming 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the dance off.
The house that came out on top this week for the Recycled mascots were Dragons, with Phoenix winning the Dance off! We only have one more house week left this academic year, so the pressure will be on for all houses to win the trophy for 2012/2013!
