Arooj Creative Writing Competition

A massive congratulations to Evelyn K ,Year 2, and Martha P, Year 4, who are both winners of the children's Arooj Creative Writing competition!

The competition asked entrants to write a short story or poem based on the topic of 'My Magical Power.' Both girls entered their writing into the competition: Evelyn in the poetry section and Martha in the short story category. 

Earlier this year we found out they had been shortlisted to attend the awards ceremoney in March, but unfortunately this had to be cancelled. 

However, the girls have since been announced as winners in their categories! Along with seven other school winners, their writing will be published in a book which we will be able to put in our school library, and which will also be placed in local libraries.

Out of the seven school winners, we are the only school to have two winners which is an amazing achievement.

Another award ceremony is being arranged for January which we are sure the girls are really excited to attend.

Leeds Wall Climbing Competition

On Monday 20th March, 7 pupils took part in the Leeds Wall School Climbing Competition.

In the over 14 boys competition, Ian (Year 11) came 3rd and Adam (Year  10) came 1st overall.

We took a very young team and everyone had a great time and gave it their best.

Well done to all pupils involved for their fantastic efforts on the day.


Trampolining Competition

On Monday 20th March, the Key Stage 3 trampolining team, which consists of Riley, India, Gemma and Ellie, travelled to Huddersfield Leisure Centre for the West Yorkshire Games.

All competitors completed the same set routine to a great standard with Ellie leading from the off. The pressure seemingly increased in the more difficult voluntary routines but all pupils showed great courage in-front of around 150 spectators and competitors.

A big 'well done' to the four squad members.
