PTA News
I am looking forward to seeing you at the Spectacular Fireworks Event tomorrow evening. The weather looks like it will be kind to us but do remember all parking will be on the new fields adjacent to the driveway, as such wellies/boots are probably appropriate.

The CCJB PTA will be running the food service and we and all those who have volunteered to help look forward to seeing you there.

Many thanks
Louise Notton-Brown

Rabbit awards this week go to James Wojciechowicz (Yr 5) and Kanishka Suriarachchi (Yr 2). James stood up for a friend earlier this week and showed real courage. Kanishka has also shown great maturity and is consistently his best self in school with us. Two very worthy winners of the rabbit award this week, well done to both boys.

News from the Sports Master
Last weekend saw the U11B team travel to St Bernard’s Prep in Slough for an U11B rugby festival. With a few players out injured and a couple with other commitments it meant that Mr Watkins could call on a few of the U11C team players to come into his side and gave them a great opportunity to show what they could do when they step up. The team played some fantastic rugby and gained a good win over the hosts of the festival. The rest of the games were hard fought and close. As with all festival rugby huge fun was had by all.

On Tuesday the U9s welcomed Thorpe House to CCJB. There were only 3 visiting teams so the U9BCDE all played triangular fixture against their U9B&C teams. I am happy to report that all our U9 teams played some excellent free flowing, passing rugby and as a result were all successful in their matches.

On Wednesday the U10s & U11s both had triangular fixtures against Caldicott & Davenies. The U10s played at home and it was an excellent afternoon of rugby with just over 130 pupils in total representing the 3 schools. All the U10 games played in excellent spirits and Mr Spanswick gave huge praise to all the teams on the excellent standard of the rucking. The U11s played away and for the first time in my memory we had to cancel the U11A team matches, as many players from this team have experienced some very bad luck with injuries and we just could not field a team! The rest of the matches were close affairs and the U11B team took encouragement from the weekend’s festival and played out a particularly competitive draw against Caldicott.
