On Wednesday this week pupils from Years 8 and 7 spent the day at Beaconsfield School taking part in a Basketball Tournament. By all reports, it was a very enjoyable day.
Today we had a Mufti day in school, with pupils wearing “wet weather gear” and donating money towards the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, a fantastic charity that is funded totally by voluntary contributions. Thank you all for your donations, over £50 was raised. We will be having a special assembly next Wednesday, with a member of the RNLI coming in to talk about the work of the organisation and to collect our donation.
Riding for the Disabled Association
For more than 40 years, RDA has been delivering opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment for people to take part in riding, carriage driving and vaulting activities. The focus of their work is to ensure that each individual has the chance to derive a direct therapeutic benefit and the opportunity to achieve their personal goal.
We are lucky enough that some of our pupils will be given the opportunity to have one term of riding lessons at RAF Halton’s Saddle Club thanks to RDA.
Unfortunately there will be no Messy Chefs Club this half-term. We hope to be able to re-arrange it at a later date and will inform pupils who have expressed an interest.
We still have unclaimed a green skull and crossbones design bag found in the hall.
There are still a few parents who haven’t paid DT money. We would be grateful if you could send that in as soon as possible.
Pupils should bring in £1.25 for each Cookery lesson they do, otherwise they will not be able to take food home with them. Please send in any containers that have been borrowed from school. We would also be very grateful for any large, good quality sweet, cake or biscuit tins you could donate to school (perhaps left over from Christmas).
A reminder that fruit is available to buy from the school Kitchen at morning break for 20p.
There will be a school inset day on Monday 26th March when pupils should not come in to school. A letter was sent home about this earlier in the week.

Mr Chappell would like to thank everyone very much who bought raffle tickets, provided prizes and sponsored his Big Bike Ride. He did complete 130 miles and the money is coming in quickly. We have £125 already and we are expecting a total of over £200. We had so many prizes, there will be another raffle draw on the Friday before half-term, so keep your raffle tickets and/or buy some more. Thank you!
With very best wishes from all pupils and staff at our school
