Sam Stewart Receives his 100% Attendance Award

Sam Stewart (ex-Y11 DCBC) received his 100% attendance award last night. Sam is 1 of 9 out of the whole of County Durham to receive this award. Not only that, there has only ever been ten students in County Durham’s history to achieve 100% attendance from nursery to leaving secondary. An amazing achievement for an amazing student with an enviable attendance record. Sam2

This week St Oswald’s Hospice unleashed their Great North Snowdogs throughout the North East of England. There are 61 large statues dotted nearby the stations on the Tyne and Wear Metro system. There are also 97 smaller dogs (one of which is called HOPE and has been painted by students from both our Colleges) these are hidden inside museums and art centres around the North East.
