ATHLETICS TRACK OFFICIALLY OPENED
Our brand new athletics track with solar powered stop watch, monkey bars and up and over bars was officially opened by Mayor Mohammed Zaman on 4 June.
The Mayor said "I feel great to have had the honour and opportunity of opening the newly completed running track at your school".
"What a marvellous job you have done. It was good to see smiles and pleasure on the children's faces."
INSTALLATION OF OUR NEW FISH TANK HAS TAKEN PLACE
Continuing our theme of God’s Creations and helping children to be aware of our environment, we have had a beautiful fish tank installed.
Below: Our Eco team are pictured in front of the tank, unfortunately the fish are hiding under the stones!
We have been celebrating God’s creations by looking at rock pools and the creatures we find there – starfish, crabs, urchins, etc. - in preparation of the installation of an aquarium outside our collective worship area.
Children enjoyed the experience of holding and learning about how the creatures survive in the sea.
Join us for a joyful celebration of our faith with
John Burland – educator and composer –
at 1.15pm on Friday 6 July in the school hall.
