GCSE Presentation Evening

On Thursday 22 November Holsworthy Community College held their annual presentation evening in Bodmin Chapel.  It was a successful evening with ex-students, their parents, staff, governors and local dignitaries attending.

Our guest speaker, Heather Stacey, was an ex Holsworthy Community College student who had gone on to become a veterinary surgeon. She gave an inspirational and informative talk on her career path.

Eloise and Lucy, both current Year 9 students, provided the music for the evening. It was lovely to hear our home grown talent as they both gave outstanding performances.

The presentation of the GCSE certificates was followed by the individual awards, all of which were well received. It was clear to see how proud the staff of Holsworthy Community College are of their students with the accompanying speeches given with each award.

We would like to thank the students and their parents for attending, the governors, local dignitaries and Mrs Stacey for supporting us and giving their time.

We would also like to thank Dawn Bewes for taking the photographs.

Apprenticeships

national_app_service_0

The next few weeks can be a fantastic time to help your child to reflect on what they might want for their future and to start to get their apprenticeship applications ready.

New apprenticeships are being developed and released all the time through The Institute for Apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships are real jobs and therefore individuals will need to participate in a competitive application, recruitment and selection process. For some employers this could be a fairly short process of an application and interview, but for other positions this could mean months of working through multiple application stages and activities. It is likely that your child will need to apply for a few vacancies before they are successful in securing the perfect apprenticeship for them.
