The Christmas countdown is now on and what better way to kick the season off than with a Christmas Fayre on Friday 13rd December 2019.  We are counting on the support of the local community who are willing to help by providing manned stalls, raffle items or even just advertising our event.

The Fete will run from 3:30 -5:00 pm and stallholders will be able to set-up from 2.30 pm. The money raised from the event will help the PTA to support the school and students with additional facilities and resources and will also assist with a larger fundraising goal: an all year round outside ‘sail shelter’ for students.

If you would like to reserve a stall space (£10) or want any further information please email:
PTA Chair: ptachair@hayleacademy.net or pta@hayleacademy.net

Alternatively, please contact Mrs Hickson at the school on 01736 753009.

If you know someone who may be interested in supporting this event by running a stall or by displaying one of our posters, please don’t hesitate to pass on this information.

We are also requesting raffle prize donations and these will be gratefully received. We look forward to seeing you all at the event and thank you in advance for your support.

 

 

 

NATIONAL CITIZEN SERVICE (NCS)

On 7th November, the NCS visited Hayle Academy to give students the chance to find out more and a chance to join them next summer.  But what is the NCS all about?

The NCS is aimed at 16 and 17-year-olds and can help give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future.

It turns No . You. Can’t – into No. We. Can. And shows you exactly what you’re made of!

Take a few weeks out in summer to mix with a new crowd, try new things and take on fresh challenges. You get to live away from home for a bit and get a taste for independence. You’ll also pick up new skills – that’ll help you to smash your future goals.

You’ll get a crash course in “adulating” Can you budget a food shop? Answer questions under pressure or present to a roomful of people without freezing up?  Give it 1 week!

You get a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project. The NCS experience lasts a few weeks, but the impact lasts a lot longer.

Join over 500,000 people who have done NCS for more information go to:  https://wearencs.com

On Sunday 10th November, representing Hayle Academy, Head Boy and Head Girl, Tommy and Eve, attended the Remembrance Sunday church service held at St Elwyn’s Church which was then followed by the procession to the memorial.

At the memorial, Tommy & Eve read the names of the fallen from both World Wars and laid a wreath on behalf of the students and staff of the school to give thanks for their sacrifice. In the words of Winston Churchill ‘Never was so much owed by so many to so few’.

Both the church service and the ceremony at the war memorial were well attended, including an unofficial ‘fly past’ by a large flock of Canada Geese!

Mrs Hickson attended the ceremony with Tommy and Eve, and was delighted when she received so many commendations from members of the public praising our students for doing such a great job!

Whilst Tommy & Eve officially represented the school, many other  Hayle Academy students took part with different organisations, such as the Sea Cadets, Guides, Scouts and Surf Life Saving, to name a few. Our students, Curtis and Victor represented the Army cadets and proudly carried their standards for the organisation.

On Monday 28th October, Year 7 and Year 8 enjoyed fun, interactive sessions with the visiting BAE Systems Roadshow in collaboration with the Royal Navy and Royal Air force.  The aim of these shows, held at schools across the country, is to introduce students to the diverse range of career paths that can be achieved from studying STEM, (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects).

The main focus of the Hayle Academy presentation was to educate students about communication, technology, programming and online data/security and demonstrated how these technologies were being used currently all over the world.

Through working in connection with the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy, BAE Systems help build collaborative communication systems. The presentation highlighted the need for, and the opportunities available to engineers and computer programme designers, and the skills used to build and develop these communication links.

There were activities and demonstrations investigating the science behind mobile technology, Bluetooth, and why mobile phones can be dangerous.  Students also learned how electromagnetic waves/spectrums work and how signals are sent and linked to binary and scratch programmes.

Radar and Infra-red waves were discussed and students got to test some night vision goggles, with one student volunteer using them to find their way around a blackout tent, in order to discover different objects hidden in boxes.

The roadshow also discussed Cyberspace and job opportunities available in that field within the Royal Air force and Royal Navy and how they were linked via different types of communication.

All in all, the students had an eye-opening time and came away with some new ideas about their future career options and how these technologies are used around our homes and in workplaces.
