Staff, and nearly 100 student volunteers were here early on Thursday 18th October to prepare their departments for CAN's Open Day 2018. Food tech was a hive of activity from early morning with students cooking cakes, scones, cheese straws and yummy biscuits for an Alice in Wonderland inspired afternoon tea under the guidance of Mrs Land, and delicious savoury canapes made by Mr Vann's team.
The energy, creativity and interaction around the Academy was fantastic. Every department had engaging, educational, fun activities which engaged our Year 6 guests and their families, and a lot of our visitors stayed over 2 hours.
Feedback from parent/carers has been overwhelmingly positive:
"The staff were all fantastic, made us feel very welcome"
"Very enthusiastic knowledgeable teaching staff"
"Absolutely brilliant.....been here about 4 hours....you guys do it in style!!"
Headteacher, Mr Paul Collin said:
"The spirit of CAN was definitely alive..........Our culture of change is transcending out to our communities, to become the ‘sea of change’!
