Community Singing Event

Thursday, 27 November 2014

Yesterday, we opened our doors to the community for a singing afternoon. We invited parents, grandparents, friends, Governors and local neighbours to join us.

KS2 sang some Christmas carols as well as some songs from the World War including ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary.’

Year 6 then served refreshments to everyone.

After the interval KS1 sang some songs from their Nativity as well as ‘Let it Go’ from the Disney film, Frozen.

The afternoon was a huge success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We asked for donations from our visitors in order to raise money for children at Sandwell Hospital. In total we raised a massive £200 so a big thank you to everyone for their kind donations.

Football winners

Wednesday, 26 November 2014

Our girls’ football team played in a tournament at Wood Green Academy today. They played 4 matches against Old Park, Tameside, Wood Green and St Philip’s. Bosco managed to win all four matches without conceding a goal!

This meant that we topped the group and now progress to the finals in the middle of December.

Well done to the whole squad – Maicie, Joanna, Wik, Anita, Janel, Lucy, Andrea and Dominica.

We took part in the Sandwell finals having qualified after a fantastic performance in the qualifying round. Overall, our year 3/4 team finished 3rd and our year 5/6 team finished 4th.

Hockey Winners!

Sunday, 23 November 2014

Well done to our hockey team who won a tournament this week against 4 other schools.

We travelled to King Edward’s school in Edgbaston to play on their astro turf in a tournament organised by Edgbaston Hockey Club against schools including St Laurence, Raddlebarn and West Heath.

We played 4 matches; winning 3 and drawing 1 meaning that we finished first ahead of St Laurence in second.

Well done to the whole team. Special mention for George who captained the team by example, scoring numerous goals and playing superbly.
