Are based in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and last until 25th February: cross country skiing, skating, ski jumping, ice hockey, snowboarding, curling - are just a few of the sports. Check them out over the half term holidays. Look out for the inspirational stories.
Don't forget to have a break with friends and family as this is a really important part of the holiday.
Also, take some time to look back at your books and notes - perhaps organise them a bit better and try to make improvements in the notes and diagrams too.
We raised £956.39 for Sophie's charity, so well done!

We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community Academy should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard after school and at home, preparing and completing revision for the final exams in the summer.
The assemblies since the mock exams have covered the 'opportunities' that will be offered and making the most of these, which the students certainly have.
This student booklet offers practical advice to students linked to the 'Do's' and 'Don'ts' for revision, a range of revision techniques to try out and advice for the lead up, night before, morning and day of the exams.
A revision timetable outline can also be found here with instructions on how to plan and organise the time between now and the exams, setting out the exact timing for revision of students' subjects.
Preparation and organisation are key and this timetable really does help.
Thank you to all the parents, carers and guardians of Sixth Form students who completed the parent view questionnaire at Parents' Evening, the responses from which can be seen on the Parent View page.
The hare has finally arrived at Sprowston Community Academy and the team of twelve Year 9s have been busy designing and producing creative writing about our hare.
From all the ideas created we have had the difficult task of choosing the design going forward. The finished hare has been based on their writing pieces and folktales on hares.
Watch this space as the team paint the hare ready for the trail.
Last term the Science Faculty started a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) club for KS3 students after school on Tuesdays and we have offered a range of activities that students wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience in their regular science lessons.

I would like to congratulate the 47 Year 13 students who have submitted a UCAS application this year for a place at university. We have had so many offers back from universities around the UK it is great to see so many Sixth Form students planning their future and starting the next stage of their life’s journey. We display all of the offers as they come in. The board is crammed solid this year and there are still lots of universities still needing to respond. Best of luck to you all.
We are committed towards ensuring that our Year 11s are able to maximise their exam potential and the Year 11 Mock Exams play an key role in supporting this drive.
It has therefore been great to see the countless examples of individual student success highlighted by the results and I would like to thank the Year 11 students for the effort towards these exams.
With the new 1-9 grading system in place, a grade 5 denotes what is nationally being considered as a 'Strong Pass'.
I would therefore like to offer a special Congratulations to the following Year 11 students who achieved a Grade 5 or above in all of their Mock Exams.
Dear Year 12 Students
