My son, Sam, attended a Food Technology workshop at Newcastle Academy. He returned home with a box of goodies which he took great pleasure in telling me how he had his own work station and shared an oven with another child from his class. He really loved having the ability to be responsible for his own weighing of the ingredients, mixing the cake mixture together, and then watching his very own cakes rise in the oven!Sam said that he had been offered support by the Teacher and some students who were there to help, but he said that he didn’t need this – they just watched and supported, and he felt so grown up. He said that he and his classmates were one of the first to use the new unit and it was brilliant. He said that he even got to decorate his own box! He ran out of school proudly holding his box of goodies, telling me, and anyone who would listen that he had made them all by himself. I would like to thank everyone who supported the visit. It is lovely for the year 5 students to get a look high schools, and some of what their future holds. Very exciting..
She wouldn’t stop texting last night about how welcoming the school was, how smart the students were. Specific mention was made about the Maths & Science departments – how helpful the staff were and the students were amazing – Sue
Just wanted to say the presentation evening was really positive and it was lovely to celebrate the achievements of the students. It was a credit to the school and there must have been a lot of hard work put in to make it such a success.
Thanks again for a positive celebration of Newcastle Academy. Onwards and upwards!
I really enjoyed working with all your students yesterday. They were well behaved, got involved and I found them an absolute pleasure to work with. – Paul C – Road Safety Officer
“Only a brief note in praise of one of your teachers, Mr H. He has been absolutely excellent with his help and support for our daughter in year 8. He has emailed, often well, well after hours, sent us extra work and made himself available to her throughout the week. We couldn’t ask for better help and we are very grateful. She has received comfort from his encouragement in a subject which she finds difficult.
I single out Mr H as we’ve had contact, but also many other teachers in your school do a brilliant job…..My daughter is very happy at school each day and obviously thinks very highly of her teachers and the staff. Thanks again for everything you do.” JL
