Swimming Gala
Thank you for all the responses to our upcoming Swimming Gala.  We’ve had a good reply from Key Stage 3 students but not many from Key Stage 4.
To help select the teams we need students to send in their best times for their preferred strokes.
If students can please send in their best times for 50m to Mr Lewin by Thursday 8th Feb, this will help when selecting teams.  We will try and involve as many students as possible in this event.

Year 7 / Year 8 Indoor Athletics Teams
Thank you also for the responses to the Indoor Athletics teams.  We are going to hold some trials at lunchtimes next week to help select the teams.

·       Tuesday - Year 7 Trials
·       Friday – Year 8 Trials
Any students interested please bring your indoor PE kit and meet in the sports hall at the start of lunchtime on these days.
