Bulletin – Thursday 21st June 2018

All Pupils – The Final for sports day is this Friday 22nd of June. So far we have seen some fantastic competition and effort from all our junior and senior pupils. The Finals day is a chance to see the classics and run in your house relays. There is a number of points still up for grabs so the more running a relay the better. Pupils need to wear their PE kit to school as well as something in the colour of their house. Please check the boards in the concourse and PE to see if you are involved in the classic races and to see which house is currently leading the race for the House Cup.
