On Monday 6th November Maureen Friday, a local educational advisor from the NFU visited. The Beacon audience was made up of sixth formers who wanted to know more about food production and farming in general. Maureen herself is a farmer and was able to offer a presentation drawing upon her experience. Particularly in grain and egg production. Another guest Maureen introduced to our students was ‘Rocky’ the rooster, who antics really made the day.

The theme this year was Mental Health in the Workplace. Pupils and staff from across the whole school took part in a range of activities relating to; social and emotional wellbeing, mindfulness, mediation, resilience and relationships. There were zone assemblies at the end of the day to continue the theme and allow pupils to share their learning with others.
