Wish List Winners 2019-2020

Back by popular demand! We are delighted that PTA funds are once again being used to give each class the chance to win £100! Each week a winning ball with a classroom number is drawn from the Wish List box! There is much excitement already as the teachers and children are having fun together deciding what to put on their Wish List. e.g. books, board games and craft materials.

Mrs Riddall’s P6 class and Mrs Hunter & Mrs Heawood’s P2 class were delighted to be the first winners of 2019- 2020! A BIG THANKYOU to the PTA for supporting this!

Sports Day 2019


The day was dry for most of our SPORTS DAY events this year!

A well organised P5 - P7 Sports Day at Sullivan Playing Fields saw the children taking part in individual finals and team events. They used a range of athletic skills to earn points for their Houses and win medals. The  fabulous Tug of War competition brought much excitement too! The enthusiastic and very loud support for all participants could be heard far and wide! The banners and pom poms were amazing this year! 

The overall winners of House Sports Day 2019 were Red House!

Our P1- P4 boys and girls had a lovely morning  at their annual Sports Day. Running, throwing, relay races, sack, egg and spoon and obstacle races were thoroughly enjoyed by the children and the many spectators. It was lovely to see the children leave very proud of their vast collection of competitor stickers on their t-shirts!

WELL DONE TO EVERYONE INVOLVED! Enjoy looking at some more photos in the gallery section of the website.
