Proud Thursday

Well done and thank you to all students that are accessing online learning and a special thank you to parents and carers for supporting this process, which we know can be challenging.

In order to recognise the huge effort that students, parents and carers are making, we are launching PROUD Thursday (which is in conjunction with many other academies and schools across Barnsley). We would love to see the work that students are most proud of, this could be a video, a picture or a piece of writing/work. All we ask is that either students, parents or carers email the work to proudthursday@holytrinitybarnsley.org with their first name, surname, year group, form/class teacher and the subject the work is relevant to (Maths, English, RE etc) in the subject box of the email. Please only email 1 piece of work per student.

We will then read through this, recognising our very best pieces with a virtual certificate and posting their work to showcase in our online community via social media and our school’s website.

Holy Trinity can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to! #holytrinitystars
