On Tuesday 3rd February over 700 pupils and staff came out to the senior yard to perform together the four dances that we have been practising for weeks. This impressive display of dance was recorded and even featured in the programme 'Operation Transformation' on 12th February.

Our 'Walk to School Campaign' was such a success that it is to continue for the next few weeks. Children and parents are encouraged to walk to school where possible.
