Sports Day - Delayed But Not Disappointing!

Following the postponement of our annual Sports Day in the summer, we all looked forward to the rescheduled Sports Day on Friday 17th September.

It was fantastic to be able to give students their chance of glory and offer the new Year 7’s a taste of what’s to come in the Summer of 2022. 

This was the first Sports Day under the revamped House system and the students didn’t let us down with their enthusiasm, effort and sportsmanship.  The atmosphere was amazing, and it was great to see a live sporting event.

AquAid Water Coolers

AquAid Water Coolers

Increased energy levels and an improved brain function are just two of the many benefits of keeping hydrated, so it's important to us as a school to provide our students and staff with cool drinking water throughout the day. 

Our school water coolers are provided by AquAid who have given us the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. With each purchase of a water cooler, an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build 'Elephant Pumps' - a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. 

One such pump has been installed in Manicaland, a province in north east Zimbabwe, Africa on our school's behalf. It will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for the whole community.
