We were so proud of our Year 5 Kwik cricketers who represented the school and Christchurch in the county finals last week! Thanks to Mrs Colebeck who supported them.
This week we had some children represent our school at a skiing competition. We were the only state school and came 5th overall. We did extremely well, particularly Georgina who picked up a bronze medal in her age category. Again these children demonstrated our school values. We certainly do have children willing to take risk. Well done!
Well done to our year 4 swimming team. They swam really well, they did not win any medals this time but have learnt a lot from there experiences. Hopefully this will help them next year. Well done!
Congratulations to our TAG rugby teams. They played really well and although it was a friendly competition. Mr Croutear did note scores. They won 5 games out of 6. They were said to have represented the school really well; working collaboratively together, being respectful and aspiring to greatness. Well done!
Well done to our Priory rugby team.
They played together as a team being supportive of one another and everyone they played. They were complemented by the referees about how they were playing and conducting themselves throughout the day and I was approached by other teachers (with praise) about them. All three girls, were mentioned at the awards ceremony for their playing with Ella receiving a player of the day award. Max was asked to be leader and was a credit to the school in leading the sportsmanship throughout the day.
They were all a credit to the school and to Mr Croutear for the work you have previously done with them.
At the end of last term and the beginning of this term we have seen lots of exciting sporting activities.
Mr Major has been changing his lunch time clubs to support children for up and coming events.
Mr Croutear is preparing children for up and coming rugby events and Mrs Miller is preparing the footballers.
Mrs Sibbald has been training our swimming team, very well, we had some great success with the children coming second over all.
We are now starting to see classes move around our running board, as the build up the miles.
Play Leader training
Mr Moody came into school to work with our play leaders and Bronze Ambassadors. He discussed ways we could engage more children at lunch and play times in active games. They learnt ways to differentiate games to suit different abilities and how to be a great leader.
DARE TO BELIEVE 30.10.18
We selected some children to take part in the Dare to believe festival. This was a great opportunity and included lots of different activities that the children had never taken part in before.

Well done to our A team, B team and reserves who all attended the football competition, you all played so well! Ralph resilience was definitely present during all the games! Also a huge thank you to our parent supporters!
Runathon Challenge! 13/11/18
Today Mr Moody came into school to represent the school with our School games Gold award and to help us relaunch our new Runathon Challenge. Each class will try to get out as much as possible to run for 15 minutes. The teacher will record the laps and this will be shared in worship on Friday.
Six girls from Class 5 attended the ‘Girls Active’ event last week with Mr Major. We look forward to hearing about all of the ideas they will bring back to school to help engage girls more with P.E. and sport.
