30-Day Attendance Challenge Success

Year 7 and 8 students were recently invited to participate in our 30 day attendance challenge. Those students that attended school every day over the 30 consecutive days (Monday 20th March – Monday 15th May 2017) were invited to attend a very hands on reward session with some very special, surprise guests. 246 students in year 7 and 8 qualified by being in school every day during the 30 days and participated in the 2 sessions that we ran on Friday 19th May - in conjunction with Dylan’s Reptile Time. The boys were very excited to get the chance to meet a bearded dragon, corn snakes, a tarantula spider, a bull frog, tortoises, a blue skink lizard, giant snails and their favourite by far… a giant python. Have a look through our photographs – you won’t believe your eyes!

Year 9, 10 and 11 boys were also invited to participate in the 30 day attendance challenge. Overall 320 students were successful by attending every day during the challenge period. Students were congratulated on their success. We did 3 raffles (one per year group) and gave away lots and lots of prizes on Friday 19th May. Prizes included JD sports gift vouchers, tubs of sweets, chocolates and golden tickets for use in the school canteen. All were very gratefully received by the 36 students who’s names were picked out the raffle and won prizes.

Congratulations to everyone who successfully completed the Attendance Challenge.
