Many congratulations to Oliver who represented Staffordshire in the discus in the prestigious Mason Trophy held at the Alexander Stadium, Birmingham. This is an Inter Counties event with representatives from ten counties competing. Oliver finished in 12th place.

A super afternoon in the blazing sunshine was had by all the boys and girls from Primary Two at the Dodderhill Multi-Sports Day, the emphasis being on participation rather than competition, with each group rotating around a set of activities – tag rugby, long jump, hurdles, tennis rounders, foam javelin, mini hockey, relay, diamond cricket and the adventure playground.

The purpose of the visit was to develop an understanding of the regeneration of the former mining area. The students listened to a talk on ‘Coal to Conkers’ led by a ranger and participated in a Bare foot Walk where they developed their understanding of the history of the site while experiencing different textures underfoot!
