Interhouse Athletics: A reminder that this takes place on Saturday 29 February and is a compulsory event for all pupils. Pupils are to be at school by 7:20am and will be free to leave at the end of the event – approximately 4:30pm. We invite you to come along and enjoy this day with us. 


Partnership Appeals: As we start our preparations for sports next term, we are looking for parents and companies that would like to partner in sponsorship for first team kits as follows:

Girls Basketball

Girls and/or Boys Hockey 


Girls and/or Boys Volleyball



We are also asking for any parents who may have associations with transportation companies for the donation of tarpaulins that are still in reasonable condition for use as covers for our cricket wickets. 

Please engage directly with the Deputy Head in charge of Extra Mural Activities on on these or any other areas you may be interested in partnering with us in.

Reflection: “Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love and he relents from sending calamity.” Joel 2:12-13
