FRIDAY 8 February 2019
Dear Parents

After yesterday’s heat, this morning’s light rain is very welcome and hopefully the day will stay cool for this afternoon’s athletics. We look forward to seeing many of you there this afternoon. We hosted this year’s Inter-Schools Relay Gala yesterday and our Bishops team had a very good afternoon, breaking two records and coming a good 2nd overall.

This weekend – with no Saturday sport – is the closest we come to an off weekend this term, with it being such a short one.

Enjoy the weekend.

Kind regards

Friday 15 February 2019
