The children in school had a non uniform day to raise money for children with cancer. A big thank you to everyone who donated £1, all of which totalled £270. The school cheque was presented by our Head Boy and Head Girl to Keiran Henderson, a past pupil, who was raising funds on behalf of ‘Children with Cancer’ charity.
Our school swimming team came first place in the Easington School Sports Partnership Swimming Gala. Well done to all the children who did a fantastic job. Our swimming team have progressed through to the county finals which will be held in March. A big well done from all of us.
Our head boy and head girl attended the YMT mass at Newcastle Cathedral this week. The mass was arranged to celebrate the fabulous work that our young people do within the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. It was a lovely moment to join together and our head boy and head girl represented our school in giving thanks on our behalf.
Tomorrow, Tuesday 5th February, will be Safer Internet Day and the children in school will be learning how to keep themselves safe when using the internet or when online.

Thank you to all parents who turned up for the safer internet talk delivered by Durham County Council. Our children did some fabulous work around keeping safe whilst on the internet or online. Throughout the day we had our school nurse team delivering whole school assemblies. Internet safety workshops for our key stage 1 children were carried out by Big Foot Limited. Our key stage 2 children did a fabulous job, presenting an assembly, showcasing the fabulous work they had done throughout the day.

Thank you to everyone who joined us this year at our Christmas fayre. There was a fabulous turn out and once again it was a lovely festive occasion which enabled our school community to come together. It was lovely to catch up with so many parents and thank you for the many lovely kind comments made to me personally about our school.
A big thank you also goes out to our ‘Friends of the School’ volunteers for their continued dedication and hard work in making our Christmas fayre possible.
