School Marathon

 A huge thank you to everyone for the fantastic support you gave to the “Marathon” last week.  Pupils and staff had great fun in the sun in our attempt to break the record set in October 2019.

– Thank you to the Parents Association who organised the event.

Sports Day 2021

We have been working really hard over the past few weeks to organise Sports Day Activities for each class. We had to adopt and change our usual plans to make it safe for everyone. Please see below information about when your child’s sports day will take place and what they will need to bring with them to school on the day.

All dates are weather depending.

Thank you for your co-operation, we hope everyone will have a super fun and active day!

Cash for Clobber

The Parents Association are running Cash for Clobber in the school next week. It is a great way to get rid of some unwanted clothes before the summer and raise some money for the school. Thank you to everyone who sent in sponsorship cards for the marathon last week. It was a great day and the children really enjoyed taking part. We will post some photos of the event next week.

Bags of clothes can be dropped near the entrance to the school gate at pick up/ drop off times. The collection will run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 14th-16th June. Please make sure that all bags are closed/ sealed.

Thanks you

School Marathon Relay

This Thursday we are hosting an event in the school that involves getting everyone in our school to run the distance of a marathon; 42,195 metres. This is done in relay format. The relay is set out in a 100m circle. Each child will run between 100m and 200m depending on age.

This has been a very challenging year for fundraising, but any money raised will go towards school improvements next year. There is only one sponsorship card per family and it was given to the youngest sibling in the school.

We hope you will all try your best to raise money for the event as it will benefit everyone. Please send all money raised back in to your child’s class teacher by Thursday 3rd June. The class with the most sponsorship will win a prize, and all children who participate will receive some goodies and treats on the day.

Thanks to the Parents’ Association for organising this event and to Keogh’s for donating some yummy crisps! . We are looking forward to it !
