Congratulations to Peter Smallcombe on reaching the quarter finals of the Men’s Doubles National Table Tennis Championships; only losing out to the current Commonwealth Games Gold Medallists! Peter has also just been selected to represent England at Youth Level. An outstanding achievement!
Congratulations to Year 7 Student Caitlyn Johnston on her second place finish in an Under 13 Irish Dancing Competition last weekend.
A fantastic achievement competing against children over a year older than herself! Well done!
As part of British Science Week we welcomed Laura and Wilson from Creatures Up Close to show Year 7 some of their amazing animals.
Wednesday’s visitors were Crash the bearded dragon; Fry the leopard gecko, Rosie a 10 year old Boa snake, Theo the Royal python, Smaug a Golden tegu lizard from Columbia and Slinky the blue tongued skink.
Year 7 have had a great time getting up close to the animals and finding out about where they live, what they eat and what it takes to look after these wonderful creatures. A few pupils were really brave and realised some of these animals aren’t as scary as they first thought!
We look forward to welcoming them back on Thursday when Sumo the giant tortoise will be among the many different visitors to school.
