Primary 6 pupils worked very hard during our Harvest Festival! After presenting the Harvest Festival assembly P6 helped to load up the collected food donations into the school minibus. Once again, the amount of food donated exceeded expectations. Children then took a trip to the Trussell Trust foodbank warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent to deliver the food. After unloading the food pupils were given a tour of the warehouse and staff answered questions about the service. The foodbank distributes to people in need all over the city and over 1000 people each month are helped by the donations. Many thanks to all who helped by making donations for the food bank collection.


A group of ten Year 9 students travelled to North Wales last week to participate in a Geography Residential visit. They stayed at the Field Studies Centre in Betws-y-Coed and enjoyed three days of Geographical fieldwork in the glorious autumn sunshine!

The aims of the visit were:

• To provide the opportunity for the learners to undertake physical geographical fieldwork, experiencing firsthand the geographical investigation process
• To allow learners to improve their knowledge and understanding of the glaciated landscapes, river processes and tourism management
• To give learners the chance to experience the varied landscapes of North Wales first hand in order to spark curiosity and enjoyment of natural and built environments.
