Today was a very special day at Smestow Academy as work began on the creation of the Bearded Fig Tiny Forest in partnership with Severn Trent Water. Smestow Academy was selected as one of the locations for a commemorative forest to mark the Commonwealth Games. The forest will include the planting of over 600 trees and creation of 2 outdoor classrooms. Mrs Fellows, who has organised the event, would like to thank the students involved for their hard work and enthusiasm. Well done, everyone! Thank you to @severntrent for their huge contribution and guidance. We look forward to the forest being enjoyed for many years to come.

Ramadan Mubarak! Ramadan is a time when Muslims concentrate on their faith and spend less time on the concerns of their everyday lives. It is a time of worship and contemplation. Fasting is considered to be an act of worship, which enables Muslims to feel closer to God and strengthen their spiritual health and self-discipline. Muslims fast during daylight hours. 🌙
April is Stress Awareness Month. We all have many demands upon us and it is important to take time out for our wellbeing. During Building People, our students learn techniques to manage stress effectively. We hope everyone has time this weekend to relax and refresh.
