Sports Day

Sports Day is close upon us and will be held on the Bournemouth School fields (behind the David Lloyd Sports Centre) this Thursday, 15th June, with the first events scheduled for 10:00 and the final events due to finish at 12:30. The pupils will take part in a carousel of sporting activities and competitive track events, with all children participating. The PTA will have refreshments on sale and, with the weather predicted to be fair, children should have sun cream applied before coming to school and should bring a hat with them.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee

This week’s thought came from Sir Tim Berners-Lee, pioneer of the world wide web. The children learned about this significant Briton during today’s assembly and considered that he showed a high level of inter-dependence, grit, curiosity, trust and courage on the path to his amazing achievements.

‘We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges.’

Sir Tim Berners-Lee

And the winner is…

Congratulations to Mrs Huntley, who’s campaign for ‘The Great Toy Swap’ was successful in our election. It was a very tightly run contest, with a winning margin of just 7 votes. More information will follow about this upcoming charity event.
