Welcome to another busy week at RTS. On Monday we will be celebrating the first super pupils of 2023 in our whole school worship time. Many of our clubs, including Choir will be starting this week. See a note at the bottom of this blog regarding Chess Club. On Tuesday we welcome the team from St John’s to lead our worship time as we continue our exploration of the theme of courage.
On Wednesday the children from Coverdale Class will be visiting the Harrogate Synagogue in the morning for what will be a very interesting trip as part of their study of Judaism. On Wednesday afternoon the children will get to enjoy another visit from the Rock Steady Team as they lead Key Stage workshops.
The forecast this week shows the first possibility of snow this winter, please stick to gritted pathways, travel safely and look out for text messages, thank you.
