Congratulations to our Swimmers and TAG Rugby players who performed really well at their respective events last week. The swimmers came 7th out of 18 teams and the rugby players won 2, drew 1 and lost 1 of their games. Both teams represented the school wonderfully; thank you to the staff who accompanied the teams.

We can also celebrate the wonderful news that Lucy Everson won the Harrogate Cross Country Championship on Saturday and qualified for the regional finals. Well done Lucy!!

This Monday the children from Ribblesdale and Airedale will begin an environmental project that will run through the year as they follow the journey of Stanley’s Stick. On Monday afternoon we are delighted to welcome the Fire Fighters from Menwith Hill who will be presenting a fire safety message to the children in two groups.

On Wednesday morning the team from Tempest Photography will be in school taking individual and family photographs; please speak to the office team if you need any further information. After school, starting at 6.30pm there is a music demonstration for all of the parents of children who are interested in learning a brass instrument

Thursday 10th October is World Mental Health Day and the school will be marking it with a day full of special activities. Mrs Styles has asked all of the children to wear something yellow as a way of celebrating the event. There is no donation expected or required for this event

Friday is another non-uniform day; this time we are supporting the work of the charity CraftAid International who did such a magnificent job working with the children at school to create the mosaics which will hang in our family meeting room. We are asking for a £1 donation with the only theme being that the children can come in as many bright colours as they want.

Also on Friday the team from Harrogate Foodbank will be leading our worship; they will be telling the children about the work that they do to help families across Harrogate. Half of the food donated at our Harvest Festival will be given to the Foodbank with the other half being given to the elderly in Bilton.

Our Harvest Festival will take place in school on the morning of Thursday 17th October staring at 9.15am. All new families are welcome to join us for our Harvest Celebration on the theme of a sustainable harvest.

Finally, thank you to all of the children and families that supported the school at the Harrogate in Bloom Awards on Sunday 6th October. The children sang and presented brilliantly and the school received a gold cup for its commitment to environmental education.
