Students have enjoyed another great week at Sandringham School. On Tuesday we welcomed schools from around the District to host our annual Mob Race. It was fantastic to see so many students participating after several years of the event being on a smaller scale. Our new Year 7 cohort represented the school excellently in their first major school event and the overall winners were Beaumount for the girls’ race and Verulam for the boys’ race.
It has also been fantastic to see students participating in so many of the extra-curricular activities across all age groups and to see sporting events back in full swing with cross country, netball, rugby and football fixtures all taking place this week. You can find out more about the great variety of opportunities we offer on SOCs and read more about our sporting results further on in the Sandprint.
Today we had the second of our Open Morning Tours (more details on additional dates under Whole School News) and tonight, we have our Staff Tug of War after school, and the postponed Year 7 Sausage Sizzle from 6.30-8pm, where we look forward to welcoming new Year 7 students and parents to the school. All money raised will be used by FO$S to buy equipment and help fund activities for the school.
Next week we welcome our German Exchange students and the week after that, our Year 7s go to the Peak District in their respective halves whilst the rest of the school will have their first Extended Learning Day of the year. Both activities are a great chance for students to bond as a year group and we look forward to telling you more about them in the coming weeks.
A reminder that Monday 19th September is a Bank Holiday for the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and as such, the school will be closed then. We look forward to seeing students on Tuesday 20th September.
Enjoy the weekend,
Mr A Gray
