Community Coffee Morning
On Friday 12th December Highnam Academy invited friends from the community to join them for a festive coffee morning. The Academy was working in partnership with our friends at Holy Innocents Church, who kindly served the teas and coffees. It was great to talk to our visitors - some hadn't been in the school since their grandchildren were in the school nearly 20 years ago!
Our visitors were treated to a variety of performances. Firstly, our Reception class sang a song called Dear Santa and shared their exciting visit from the elves yesterday. Next Year 1 and 2 sang two numbers from their Christmas production 'Children of the World.' After we heard from the Highnam Academy choir and the chime bars group.
We had a couple of solos from Ella playing her flute and Toby playing the piano - both receiving rapturous applause for their efforts. Next a selection of pupils from Year 5/6 sang and some pupils from Year 3/4 shared their winter poems.
A big thank you to Miss Coldrick for organising the pupils that performed during the morning and to the team of volunteers from the church for helping run the kitchen.
We look forward to running another coffee morning next year.
