Social Action in Action

Posted 14/10/2019
Children from Years 5&6 took action into their own hands on Friday raising money to enable them to twin their toilets and support people and places for whom even the most basic facilities are not always present. The children led this from start to finish from the initial suggestion of supporting this project through to the ideas for the event, stalls and organising and running the whole event. So far they have raised an impressive £240 which will be enough to provide a whole toilet block to a school or village. We look forward to making our donation and see where in the world our block has been created. A huge well done to all the children and to the parents and staff who supported them.

Sporting Influence Competition Series-Week Two

Posted 20/9/2019
We all enjoyed another evening up at Harrogate High tonight for week two of our football completion series. After a reminder from Mr Moss about the Sporting Values we always work on of respect, communication and body language we got straight into our three matches against Bilton Grange, New Park and Grove Road.
As always our Federation team did us proud showing great teamwork, skill, and commitment in all matches. We started with a 2-1 win against New Park with two goals and an amazing goal line clearance in the last ten seconds from Louis. The second game was a hard fount battle with Grove Road. Some amazing goalkeeping from Ava helped keep the score to 0-0 until the very last second when Bilton finally broke through the stout 'Spollifoot' defence to sneak a 1-0 win. The final games was also a narrow 1-0 defeat but with plenty of chances for both teams. Very well played to all who took part.
