Senior news March 2020

It has been another action-packed few weeks in the Senior Syndicate.

A group of senior students took part in the Lit Quiz at DNI last week and were up against a number of other pupils were they were challenged on all aspects of children's literature. It was a tricky quiz but they really enjoyed being involved and challenging themselves.

R1,1A and 4 have finished their 6 session coaching course with Y12 pupils from OGHS. They have really enjoyed their fundamental skills coaching over the last few weeks and have shown good development during this time.

A few weeks ago, the senior team travelled to Kaikorai Valley High School to participate in their annual sports expo. We took part in a wide variety of sports from traditional codes like tennis and hockey to more unusual sports like cornhole, ultimate frisbee, marching and rock climbing. It really was a neat event that we were invited to and so great for our pupils to exposed to such a range of sports and activities.

Unfortunately, as you know, due to  Covid-19, our Y5 activity week and Y6 camp have been postponed until 24th-27th November. I will be in touch with more information in due course. We thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.

As always, thank you for your ongoing support.
