New outdoor library

Sunday, 16 September 2018

We are pleased to unveil our new outdoor library which is in use every lunch time in our outdoor classroom. This is in addition to our weekly minibus trip to the local library and it’s all part of our philosophy to promote a love of reading. Our lunch time library is already proving to be very popular. We have some extremely enthusiastic year 6 monitors running the library and we are very grateful for their support. We are currently collecting more books to add to this library, with a prize up for grabs for the class who bring in the most books. Thank you to those who have already donated. Any further book donations will be greatly appreciated. Well done to everyone who has been involved in setting up and running the library so quickly and efficiently.

Sports Awards

Thursday, 12 July 2018

To celebrate such a fantastic year, we held our first ever sports awards. It was well attended by parents and families and enjoyed by the whole school. It recognised our collective achievements and we had team photos with all of our squads across the 14 different sports we’ve competed in. We are proud that over 130 different children have represented the school this year and more importantly, the conduct of our children has been exemplary throughout. We have been successful but learnt many things along the way and had a lot of fun too.

The awards also recognised a number of individual year 6 children for their achievements, attitude and commitment to sport. A big well done to all of our award winners, everyone who represented the school this year and to all the staff and families who made it all happen.
