Toilet Twinning

 

Toilet Twinning:

Year 6 are supporting the Toilet Twinning charity this year. Our aim Is for each of our toilets in school to be €˜twinned€™ with a sanitation project overseas, in a community that is less fortunate than our own.

We are truly dedicated to the cause, and extremely enthusiastic, and through fun days, communicating with local businesses, raffles and stationery sales we have rasied a whopping £1,060 so far- meaning we have already twinned 18 of our 41 toilets.

We have many others plans in the pipeline (!) and are storming towards reaching our total of £2460 by the end of the year.

We always love receiving ideas for fundraising, and love donations even more- so if you're interested, come to speak to any of the Year 6 children, or Mrs Harrand, Holly class teacher.

Watch this space!

Harry Small Reporter

 

One of our pupils, Harry Small, entered a competition to be a reporter for the Sports Personality of the Year, held in Leeds last Sunday.  For the competition he had to explain why he should be a reporter in no more than 150 words.  Harry'€™s entrance was so good that he was selected.  He met a range of sports personalities on the Sunday afternoon at Leeds Civic Hall and was given the opportunity to interview some.  Congratulations and well done Harry.

Girls under 11's football team

 

On Wednesday 25th June the Under 11's Girl's Football team, took part in the St Bart's Cup at John Charles Sport Centre. There were 40 teams competing and the Kerr Mackie team were in Group 3 of 8. We won our first game 3-0 and went on to win 3 out of 4 games, including one game 5-0. We came top of group 3 and in the second round played Oakwood and won 3-0 to get into the Quarter finals. In the Quarter finals we played St Margaret's Church of England, Horsforth and unfortunately lost 2-0.

                    The girls played very well and hopefully will continue their success next year.
