During Skills Week we ran a Fashion and Beauty Project.
We were lucky enough to have visits from many outside companies to help us with the week. Newcastle College staff were excellent and stepped in to help at very short notice. One day they came to school to give the pupils ‘hands on’ experience of working with hair and nails – the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day. We also had the chance to see what it would be like to go to the college and saw some of the great courses they have on offer.
The highlight of the week was when Staffordshire Living Magazine came in. Features Writer, Justine Clegg, returned again this year to give the pupils an insight as to how magazines are produced and where the inspiration comes from. Justine asked the pupils to work in groups and produce a presentation about a ‘trend’ they were familiar with. Each group worked excellently and it was a difficult decision for Justine to decide on the overall winner. Staffordshire Living Magazine have included the visit to us on their website.
We would like to thanks all the companies who helped us run this week and the pupils who worked and behaved excellently all week. We look forward to next year.
