We have received the news that Holy Cross has achieved the silver School Games Mark. This is a government led award which was launched in 2012. Last Year we achieved bronze and thanks to the commitment of staff in encouraging and providing opportunities for children to compete in a wide range of sports we have managed to achieve silver. One of the major things that we are proud of is that to achieve silver 35% of Key Stage 2 children need to be active in sports activities outside of the curriculum and we currently have 75%! Our Year 6 sports ambassadors have a huge part to play in this, under the guidance of Mr Morley. Thank you to our ever busy Year 6 for giving up their lunch times to provide activities for the rest of the school.
Our School Nurse will be available on the second Tuesday in the month to see any parent with concerns about their child, to offer advice or just to make contact. Her next visit in to school is on Tuesday 9th October at 9.00am. No appointment is necessary just come to the school office.
Our children are taking part in their first Cross Country event on Saturday 30th September. This is the first for some children and we wish them all luck as they race against a couple of hundred children from across the county! Let's also hope for dry weather!
