Trip to ‘Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific’ Art Exhibition at Sainsbury Centre UEA Norwich – Tuesday 7th February 2017
BTEC, GCSE and S1 Art groups went to the ‘Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific’ Art Exhibition, which was held in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at the UEA in Norwich.
The exhibition took students on a journey through the art and cultural history of Fiji since the late 18th Century. It gave students a chance to experience over 270 works of art, including stunning sculptures, textiles, ceramics, ivory and shell regalia, European paintings and historic photographs loaned from museums and galleries located around the world.
This unique collection will provide a historical context showing how these art works have been produced. It is anticipated that this will inspire and encourage students to think about how art works are created through different influences.
Christmas at CAEA
The Holiday Season has very definitely arrived at CAEA. The Christmas Nativity Show was a resounding success. This was followed by our Christmas Carol Service earlier today—we’re just now going to press, having been tempted by too many mince pies, cake and tea!—which, as always, was the most fitting way to begin the Holiday Season. Of course, our students have found other ways as well, including the school Christmas Dinner earlier this week; many thanks to Lauren and the entire catering staff.
Our students and, indeed, the parent community have also shown the appropriate spirit with wonderful support going to some of the charities we support. This year, we have raised money for the RSPCA, Children in Need and the Great Ormond Street Hospital. And finally, we collected 26 boxes from our students and staff for Operation Christmas Child.
Bonfire Night – Wednesday 9th November 2016
On the evening of Bonfire Night the Student Council will be selling crisps, sweets, popcorn and glow sticks. We will also have a box for anyone who wishes to donate to our charity for the evening, the RSPCA.
Thank you for your continued support.

Art Trip – Tuesday 27th September 2016
Students from classes BTEC, GCSE and S1 enjoyed a trip to Blackthorpe Barn Arts Centre. The annual arts exhibition that had 30 of East Anglia's leading artists celebrated a cross-section of media, narrative and experimental art works. Set in a magnificent 15th Century barn students were also able to talk to one of the exhibiting artists, 'Roger Gamble' about his work, discussing his influences, ideas and life as a practising artist (Art trip2 shows Roger with our students). The trip was a valuable experience allowing students to discuss, critically analyse and enjoy a number of diverse art works from sculpture to video installations.
UAS Trip to Stowmarket
On Friday 23rd September the UAS students and I travelled to Stowmarket in a mini bus.
Firstly we made our way to Ince’s and collected shoeboxes ready for the Operation Christmas Child appeal.
Secondly we had a wander around Stowmarket, visiting a variety of shops and the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts.
Thirdly we went to the Lime Tree Café and practised using our calculators how to order food and drink. The students were given £5 and had to order within this budget. Most of the students had to change their order; some of them had to change their order a few times to keep within the budget!! The students were also asked to work out how much change they would get and, face to face with the waitress, they had to order their own food and drink.
SUMMER PLAY 2016
This year's summer production was a triumph by all accounts. Jewels, buttons, tiaras and flowers aplenty, we transformed our school into a forest wonderland, and our amazing cast put on a stunning show. Our students flourished recounting Shakespeare's beautiful verse clearly and confidently. Highlights included an acrobatic Titania falling off her hammock, Demetrius' costume being wrecked by a furious Helena, and actor sporting a light saber and another with a rather fetching rainbow wig.
We couldn't have done it without the help from our wonderful staff and student helpers, and a big mention goes to our parent helpers:
Costumes: Mrs Hobart, Mrs Basu, Mrs Raja, Mrs Ault and Phoebe Ault, Mrs Sheldon, Mrs Whall and Miss Porter.
Refreshments: Mrs Basu, Mrs Clarke, Ms Farley, Mr & Mrs Dumycz, Mrs Gooding.
Once again, thank you to our wonderful parent community.
Clubs / Activities
Gresham’s – Friday 30th September 2016
Once again we loaded up the minibus and set off on our trek to North Norfolk for the Annual Cross-Country event at Gresham’s Prep School. The weather couldn’t have been better for some cross-country running and conditions were perfect. For the first time in a couple of years we were able to field athletes in each of the four events. Despite this, we were still not quite able to challenge for the team competition (something about needing more runners!)
All the runners did themselves and the school proud trying their best and managing to complete the course without stopping. One performance of note was Charlotte Whall, who finished 18th out of a field of 250 athletes.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s competition and hoping for some even higher placed finishes.
As well as the various activities on offer, our students can now enjoy participating in clubs. Our Photography & Gardening clubs running during the summer term.
Gardening Club is responsible for the running and maintenance of the school allotment. All students have the opportunity to join the club which is on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday Lunchtime. To find out a litte more, please click here to download Gardening Newsletter.
Photography Club is a cross-curricular activity combining the skills of Art and ICT. It promotes creativity and imagination, as every week a new topic is chosen for the students to interpret. The topics are chosen using Art curriculum guidance to ensure that cross curricular links are maintained. The club runs every Summer term to ensure that we make good use of the better weather.To find out a litte more, please click here to download Photography Newsletter.
