We enjoyed the visit from some Chinese Students on Wednesday last week.

They joined our year 9 pupils for the day so they could experience a typical day in an English school. They had French, biology music, history, art lessons which they all embraced and enjoyed.

Muddy quagmires, swollen streams and snow showers, Bedstone bared it's teeth again this year for our runners competing in the highly competitive ISA Midlands Senior and Junior Cross Country Championships in Bucknell, Shropshire.

It is an achievement in itself to complete the tough course around Bedstone, particularly for the younger runners.The sense of satisfaction in completing it is felt by all. The hot chocolate and cookie at the end a welcome relief from the conditions.

Year 9 pupils ran a Fair Trade tuck shop in the RE room today and encouraged fellow pupils and staff to shop ethically.

Buying from the Fairtrade foundation allows us to stand in solidarity with producers in LEDCs by acknowledging their hard work and giving them a fair price for their product.

The chocolate tastes good too!
