The Nicholas Hamond Academy Students lay a wreath at the Menin Gate in Ypres Exploring the muddy trenches of the Battlefields helped students imagine conditions experienced by allied forces during the First World War. Two students had the honour of laying a wreath as part of the Last Post, a ceremony which has taken place every evening since 1928 at the Menin Gate, Ypres, honouring the courage and self-sacrifice of those who fell in defence of the town. Evidence of the true human cost of the War was seen on the final visit to the Cloth Hall in Ypres and Tyne Cot cemetery (the largest commonwealth military cemetery in the world). Conquering the hire wire Building confidence, resilience and the opportunity for new adventures are just some of the reasons that students have signed up to the Duke of Edinburgh Programme. They are currently planning a range of activities in order to complete the Bronze Award over the next six months which include basketball, mountain biking, volunteering at the local library and helping at an animal charity. Students will also plan a two day overnight camping expedition challenging navigational skills, camp craft and promoting teamwork. Students ready for the clean up There was no shortage of volunteers to help support the ‘clean-up day’ in Swaffham town centre recently. Always keen to get involved with activities in the wider community, eight of our students joined forces with the local townspeople in a pledge to keep an area of the town free from litter. Kitted out with high viz vests, gloves, litter picking tools and bin bags students cleared the hedgerows and pavements of rubbish and have promised to repeat this exercise if necessary during the Summer. Whether climbing the high wire or improving their archery skills, students enjoyed the many exciting activities at Kingswood in Overstrand recently. TNHA organised the residential trip for Year 9 students to experience challenges demanding problem solving, initiative and teamwork in the grounds of Lutyens Manor House. All thoroughly enjoyed their stay, returning tired and full of stories of their great adventures! 7 DofE participants ready for the challenge Swaffham Infant School Swaffham Infant and Nursery train is ready for all to climb on board. Friends of Swaffham Infants asked local firms if they could help in any way to renovate the outside play train and were pleased when Johnstone’s Decorating Centre and Brewers Decorating Centre from King’s Lynn donated some paint.They were amazed when AMB Plant, Civil and Utility Contractors, from Swaffham offered to complete the work themselves including replacing wood and flooring. The work was completed over the Easter holidays, and as you can see the children are loving it! Photo shows Mr Alan Bailey and Mr Craig Dye from AMB Plant as some of the children thank them for their work.
