DON BOSCO HOST FAMILIES NEEDED

Thank you to all the families that have already signed up for the Don Bosco Exchange in 2018. We’ve had a great response from the Year 8 students and we are now targeting host families in Years 9, 10 and 11.
The exchange runs from Monday 2nd April – Friday 6th April 2018.
If you are able to offer accommodation for one of our travelling guests please contact Mr Lewin to receive full details. Hosting in 2018 also guarantees students a place on the exchange when we travel to Belgium in 2019.

At the end of Term 1 we are currently second in the Rutland & Melton Varsity Cup. Our standout teams were the Year 9 Netball team and U16 Boys Table Tennis team who won their competitions last term.

Autumn Term 2 sees our teams compete in Basketball, Handball and Trampolining so good luck to all our students who will be representing the college.
