Well done to everyone who took part in our, ‘crack-ing’, egg-citing, Easter Egg Art Competition. We were all so impressed by the incredibly high levels of creativity and detail. There were so many different designs I am sure the judges had a very hard job choosing the winners. Thank you all for your hard work and have a lovely holiday.
Many congratulations to Bradley and Ollie, winners of the Sports Togetherness Day. They choose a cheery tree for the school and here they are, having proudly planted it, with their winning certificate. Many congratulations, boys!
