Open Evening Success!Posted on: 10/10/2019
Capital City Academy’s annual Open Evening, which took place on Thursday 10th October, was a real success. The school opened its doors and welcomed many prospective parents and students to showcase all that Capital City Academy has to offer. Over 100 current Capital students also attended the event as school ambassadors with many giving bespoke tours to the families that attended.
A particular highlight of the evening was hearing from some of our students during the Principal’s presentation. Our Head Boy, Yousif, and Head Girl, Mirianne, spoke about their academic journey since starting at CCA, as well as the responsibility that comes with their leadership role at the school. Yasmina, a year 7 student, engaged parents with her experience of transitioning from primary to secondary school life and commented on how much she has enjoyed her journey at CCA so far. Marvin, in year 8, delivered a speech on his passion for the arts and the fantastic opportunities available to students, whilst Nia, a year 10 student, gave parents insight into the sports aptitude places we have on offer here at CCA.
There was a real buzz in the corridors during the evening. Departments had gone above and beyond to prepare displays of current students’ work and activities for visiting students to take part in to promote their subject. Thank you to all staff and students involved in making the event such a success. The feedback left by many of the visiting families also highlights how well the evening was received by all!
