Penny Hudson and Mr Thompson attended a FututeMe awards evening at Sunderlands Quayside Exchange. This was an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and achievements of young people, mentors and school staff who have been involved in the FutureMe Schools Programme during the 2018/19 academic year.
Penny has been recognised by the FutureMe team at Teesside University for passionately building the FutureMe offer within the Hurworth’s wider career programme and sharing her vast experience as an example of best practice with other FutureMe schools in the Teesside area.
Penny’s award of Outstanding Individual Contribution to Higher Education is a justification to all her hard work and dedication. This award recognises her as a member of staff who goes above and beyond to support higher education progression in their school.
37 students and 5 staff recently headed to Coniston for a weekend at Thurston Outdoor Education Centre.
The weather in the run-up to the weekend had been miserable, but we were treated to glorious sunshine and warm temperatures.
Upon arrival, the first task was to cook our evening meal of sausages, burgers and chicken on a barbeque, then it was time for a (no so) early night in order to be full of energy for a day packed full of activities on Saturday.
The students were divided into 4 groups and over the course of the weekend each group took part in paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and ghyll scrambling. Evening activities consisted of team games and jumping off the jetty into the lake.
It was a very tired group that arrived back to school on Sunday evening!
