No Sports Day This Year
Just a reminder that there is no Sports Day happening this year due to scheduling issues caused by covid and a lack of availability of substitute cover for organising teachers. This year priority was given to 5th and 6th class participation blitzes as well as the skills competition. Many thanks to all our volunteers who have ensured that these games have gone ahead safely and that the children have really enjoyed themselves.
