Sports News

Good luck to the Y5/6 football team who play Frodsham C of E Primary on Thursday after school. Well done to the cross country squad members who ran 5,000m in 16 minutes and 5 seconds to sit 5th in the world (out of 97 entries) at the moment. A terrific effort!

A reminder that we are looking for as many helpers as possible at this event. We sent out a letter before half term asking for help – if you can offer your support in any way, please fill in the reply slip and hand in to the office.

Can you help out in a stall? Can you make a cake? Do you know someone who would sponsor a stall?

Thank-you to everyone who has already volunteered. Many hands make light work!
