Forthcoming Events

Saturday 14 October - PTA Fireworks Spectacular at Junior Boys
Friday 10 November - Fright Night Disco for all juniors at College Avenue
Saturday 11 November - Claires Court Chess Tournament at Junior Boys

During this hectic first few weeks back at the school, the PTA have been working to put together our schedule of events for this academic year. Our 1st CCJB PTA meeting of the year will take place on Tuesday 10 October at 10am at the Blue River Cafe. Everyone is welcome to attend and it would be great to see old and new faces alike. If you would like to attend or indeed can’t attend but would like to be updated on the meeting, please email me at ptaccjb@gmail.com.

The Fireworks Spectacular will take place on Saturday 14 October and tickets for the event are available to book online via the pay portal. It truly is a great night of fun for the whole family, but as always the success of these events relies on your support, not only by attending the event but also by volunteering to help. The CCJB PTA are this year responsible for running the food service and as such we will be looking for volunteers who can give up just 1/2 hour to join our rota. Contact your Class Rep if you would like to volunteer.

Myself and Amy Ward my Vice Chair are looking forward to meeting lots of you over the coming weeks. Should you have any questions or indeed any ideas that your think the PTA should consider please contact me at ptaccjb@gmail.com.

Kind Regards,
Louise Notton-Brown

9-12 Nov - Y5&6 Rugby & Hockey Tour to Newquay

Our rabbit winners this week are Max Feiler (Reception) and Henry Paw (Year 1). Since the start of term, both Max and Henry have impressed all of our teachers with their positive and willing attitude, always ready to help and friend or a teacher, and making sure that they are following the Golden Rules. Two wonderful pupils, well done to them both, they are worthy winners of the Rabbit awards this week.
News from the Sports Master
A bit of a bumper week this week, due to the fact Year 5 travelled for a residential outward bounds weekend at Marchants Hill PGL centre last Friday meant that the sports news rolled over to this week.

Last week all of our U9 teams took on Davenies. Out of the 5 matches we won 3 of them with the U9A, U9B & U9 D all recording wins. The two games we did lose were both only lost by a single try. The U9E team competed in an end to end battle that saw them narrowly pipped 60-65!

The Year 5 had a week off as they were going to spend all weekend running about the Surrey countryside taking part in various outward bound activities from, raft building, orienteering, and zip wire to name just a few. Great fun was had by all and it gave a pupils an excellent opportunity for teamwork and cooperation in a less formal setting than the classroom or the rugby pitch.

Year 6 travelled to St George’s Weybridge for some very physical matches. We had some excellent result winning 3 out of the 4 games. The A team had a cracking game narrowly winning 15-5. There were a few bumps and bruises from these tough games so they all look forward to the fact that they had a rest week this week. However they did find time to play internal gmatch on Wednesday

This week the U9 all played The Beacon. While many of these games were close encounters we found it difficult to get results against a school that has nearly twice as many pupils. The result of the afternoon came from the U9D team who drew 50-50.
