Albert and Oliver in Rugby Finals!

We would like to congratulate to Albert and Oliver in Year 5 for their success with their rugby team last weekend. The team they play for, the U10 team at Crusaders Rugby Club, Little Melton, played at Diss on Sunday in a regional Prima Cup competition. They won all their games which were scored on both sportsmanship and the core values of rugby. As a result, the team got through to the finals at Welford Road, the Leicester Tigers’ ground.

The finals are on March 2
nd and both the boys and the team are excited to be playing on the same pitch as their rugby heroes, in front of 1000s of people, and representing the region in the competition.

Well done, Albert and Oliver! We look forward to hearing how you and your team do in the finals.

Sleepover Weekend a Big Hit!

The boarding house was a hive of activity this weekend with a sleepover for day pupils from years 7 and 8 on Friday night, followed by a trip to Thrigby Hall on Saturday.

We began with a scavenger hunt, which involved a lot of running about and shouting, followed by a film and popcorn. A great time was had by everyone!

On Saturday at Thrigby Hall the big cats were definitely the favourites ,especially the tigers. We also made good use of the many play areas.

It was a real pleasure to have the day girls staying with us and we are looking forward to the next sleepover on Friday November 30th for years 9 and 10.
