Good Reads - Miss Hartley - posted 22nd Jul

Miss Hartley began today's Good Reads by telling us that her real name was Miss Hedgehog. She shared anecdotes with students about these lovely creatures and read a few passages (some sad, some funny) from 'A Prickly Affair: My Life with Hedgehogs' by Hugh Warwick. A copy of the book is available from the LRC. Many thanks to Miss Hartley alias Hedgehog for sharing one of her passions.

Congratulations Zeba - posted 22nd Jul

Zeba Javed in Year 11 ended her half term by winning the iPad Mini raffle.
Zeba bought two tickets for the raffle, one for herself and one for a friend, and could not believe she had won!
Miss Hartley, seen here presenting Zeba with her new iPad, spent around 10 minutes trying to convince Zeba that her ticket had been picked out!
The raffle raised well over £200 towards the Calder VI Overseas Project to take place in summer 2015.
Thank you to all those who bought tickets. What a lovely way to start May half term.
Have a great break!
