A Shining Success!
Saturday evening saw a wonderful celebration dinner at which prizes and certificates were handed out to Year 5 pupils as the 'SHINE: Serious Fun on Saturdays' programme came to a successful conclusion. The pupils from state primary schools across Bolton were accompanied by their parents and guardians at the silver service dinner and were thrilled to each receive a prize and certificate for their efforts and Miss Wedderspoon, SHINE’s North-West envoy, read the children a message of congratulations from Shine ambassador and patron David Beckham.
A Week of Individual and Team Achievements
A number of stories this week have exemplified the vein of talent and diligence that runs throughout the Foundation. Thorrun Govind, a Sixth Form girl, was chosen to shadow a government minister; Richard Newman, a Sixth Form boy and captain of the School’s First XV rugby team, was selected to play in the national Independent Schools’ Barbarians team; the first eleven football team were photographed ahead of their two forthcoming semi-finals; the U13s team were photographed ahead of their national football final; the girls’ juniors, inters and seniors swim teams were photographed with the cups from their recent clean sweep at the town cup; wonderful music was made in the Junior Girls’ Music Festival; and Year 7 and Year 8 boys showed great prowess in gymnastics.
