Festivities at MC Academy

During the month of December, MC Academy has been celebrating the festive season in school with a number of fun festive-themed lessons and social activities. Students have been writing letters to Father Christmas, visiting ice skating rinks with their friends and teachers, and have also attended festive-themed Book Clubs to help improve their reading and writing skills, whilst sipping on warm cups of tea and coffee.

Beginning in late November, the staff members and students at MC Academy have embarked on a more philanthropic path, in line with their academic studies, to help aid those in need in the local community by offering donations to the Manchester-based charity, Mustard Tree. The charity organisation aims to counter and help prevent homelessness in and around Manchester and the students have been hard at work donating at the school at a number of organised events. One event, in particular, which gained a lot of attention from both hungry students and staff members alike, took the form of a Cake Sale held at the school’s Reception, where students had the chance to sell homemade cheesecake for a small donation to the charity. Other charitable events headlined by the school’s staff members included a Christmas Jumper Day on Friday the 13th and a ‘Dress Down Friday’ which occurs on the last working Friday of every month.

Beginning at the start of this month, MC Academy was proud to announce its first Book Club, held every Wednesday after lunchtime for all students who have an interest in reading and of books. Needless to say, the event proved to be a major success and continues to attract more and more students as the weeks progress.

The festive atmosphere present in the school’s corridors and classrooms not only kept both the students and staff members in high-spirits in the lead up to the Christmas period but also attracted the attention of a somewhat jolly and infamous figure hailing from more northern and icy lands. The students, both in awe and disbelief, we most cheerful upon receiving a visit from Father Christmas, bearing small sweet gifts to eat during class. The school is hopeful that this jolly old chap will pay another visit to the school in the coming week, but as the Christmas season approaches, Father Christmas may find himself preoccupied with his elves!

From everyone at MC Academy, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And we thank you greatly for all of your hard work and cooperation throughout the whole of 2019!
