From the Office
This week’s Rabbit winners are Thomas Humphrey and Edward Look. Thomas in Reception showed great kindness to his friend who had lost his achievement sticker. He saw that his friend was upset and took his own sticker from his jumper and very generously gave it to him. What a lovely gesture! Edward has been a good ambassador of Our Golden Rules this week by being extremely helpful around school especially to his Form Teacher. Both boys are worthy winners of the Rabbits this week.

News from the Sports Master
Last Friday our U10 teams hosted St John’s Northwood. Our teams put on an excellent display of rugby and all five teams came away with superb results. The U10A, B and C teams only conceded 3 tries in total. An excellent defensive effort from all teams.
The U9 teams hosted Oratory Prep on Tuesday in some horrible weather conditions. The U9A and B teams had a very competitive match only losing by one try and two tries respectively. The U9C team had the result of the day with a convincing win. The U9D team held out for an epic 55-55 draw.

Both the U10 and U11 teams had fixtures against Ludgrove School this Wednesday. Ludgrove have only just started playing rugby as at the start of the school year they play football. The U11 fixtures were extremely competitive with our U11A and B teams winning by one try and two tries respectively. The U10A, B and C teams all had excellent wins again!
We would like to wish Callum Potter in Year 6 all the best as he travels to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to compete in the ISA National Swimming Gala this weekend to represent the region in the Year 6 relay.
