Congratulations to Jed from Year 7 who over the summer was selected to represent GB at the international Biathle finals (consists of a continuous race of running, swimming and then running). The finals are being held in Dubai over the October half-term.
The first full Wednesday of rugby training saw the Year 7 and 8 boys going to Bryanston for an afternoon of top level rugby coaching. The coaching staff from Bryanston, who are all experienced international level coaches, spent the afternoon helping the boys refine their ball handling skills. This week has seen the first match of the season, which was a good win for the first team, with many of the team’s new skills being used to full advantage.
During the summer holiday the Textile Group entered their Owl Cushions into the Dorset Arts and Crafts Association annual exhibition, held at Bovington Middle School. Eleven owls were submitted as a group entry and received the Association Award, Group Artwork.
On Sunday 5th August two members of the Textile Group, Amelia and James joined Mrs Sims to receive the award.
