On Thursday 2nd May 2013 Therfield celebrated our ‘Living the Vision’ Showcase. This event was a platform to demonstrate  how the school vision ‘Best for All: Excellence, Leadership and Opportunity’ is an integral part of everything we do on a daily basis.

The audience were invited to look around the exhibition which illustrated the work of subject areas from across the school. These ranged from displays of excellent work completed in class and during extra curricular opportunities, to interactive activities including speed stack and taste tests and a Pac-man computer game controlled by using bananas!

Meanwhile Year 10 students from Catering circulated amongst the crowd in their chef’s attire offering savoury and sweet canapés. These mouth-watering treats had been made in the time between the end of school and the doors opening, as a rehearsal for their practical examination next year. Therfield Trust also kindly provided drink refreshments.

At 7.15pm the main hall event started. The evening was compered by Ellie Griffiths and Oliver Ayres, Young Ambassador and Young Leader for Sport respectively. Our year 9 Language Leaders gave a great account of their work so far including their visit to the Greville Primary School to inspire a love of languages and their plans for a year 5 festival linked with sport  to be held here at Therfield in June.

Music displayed ‘excellence’ through two of their many extra-curricular clubs. Therfield Guitars, formed this year and led by Mr Moon , performed an amazing version of the classic Sweet Child of Mine. B-VOX our Key Stage 3 vocal group led by Miss Fuller performed Here Comes the Sun beautifully, helping to ensure that the sun did indeed last for one of our ‘best weather’ Bank holidays!

Miss Rennie gave a very proud account of Therfield’s journey in sports leadership, where 8 students were selected to represent the school as Young Games Makers at the London 2012 Paralympic 7a-side Football competition. Alex Willcocks and Amelia Woodhouse, both currently year 13 students gave an inspirational speech about their Duke of Edinburgh experiences throughout  their time at Therfield and the many benefits that it had given to them personally.
A group of year 7 and 8 volunteers also shared their personal reflections on how they have experienced excellence, leadership and opportunity since joining Therfield with many saying how much they are looking forward to what lies ahead. The evening finished with a spectacular Fashion Show extravaganza where textiles students from year 10 to 13 had the chance to illustrate their work on the catwalk.
