On Friday we invited pensioners from all eight of our primary school parishes to come and celebrate an early Christmas meal with entertainment put on by the pupils.  From the comments and lovely Christmas cards I received afterwards, they all had a brilliant time! I know I often say how proud I am of our pupils, but I really am so proud of them!  Let me give you a little example: our Year 9 pupils wanted to put their faith into action by raising money for this event so that it could definitely go ahead.  Some pupils offered to serve our guests their food and drink, whilst others practised different dances for weeks to provide the entertainment.  They combined their efforts in the month before this by going round to each form selling raffle tickets etc. and raised enough money to cover the cost of the event. They are a credit to themselves, their families and the school.  Well done to everyone involved and thank you.

Miss Harley told me Year 7 have had an exceptional week again, with 1096 Achievement Points collected and only 27 Behaviour Points! That is fantastic Year 7, well done! Top girl achievers were Millie Jarnell 7M – 32 (wow!), Sophie Dittman 7B – 19 and Olga Markiewicz 7S – 18.  Top boy achievers were Lewis Harrison 7C - 20, Vuyo Maninjwa 7G – 19 and William Murphy – 18.  Congratulations to all pupils, keep up the good work!
