Welcome to our special page that is dedicated to sharing all the fantastic things that our pupils are achieving outside of school. If you would like to let everyone know about something you have achieved please write it down and put it in an envelope addressed to ’Mrs Polley’ so we can type it up here for everyone to read.
Congratulations and well done to Brogan in P6a! Brogan has been going to Sea Cadets now for over a year, and so has been presented with her first star for attendance and good conduct. As well as her star, she has also achieved her yellow, red and blue modules. Her Red is for completing indoor activities such as improving fitness, her Blue is for outdoor activities on the boats and her Yellow is for services in the community. Brogan took part in gardening at a care home for the elderly, and her group had talks from local councillors about how they can help in their area. On top of all that, Brogan also received her Camp Craft badge after attending camp last August, working with others to set up campfires and cooking her own food. This all sounds like a lot of fun and a really rewarding thing to do Brogan! Keep it up and keep us posted!

Maggie was inspired to raise money after hearing about the charity on Blue Peter and has raised this impressive amount by doing beauty treatments for her family, selling cards and lavendar bags at the school fair, organising a raffle and holding a fundraising breakfast for her friends and their mums. An outstanding and very enterprising achievement Maggie!
