Dear Parents and Carers
Well done to Clemmie who requested to run an assembly to raise the awareness of Eco Bricks. These are bricks made from plastic bottles filled with other plastic waste, which are then compressed into bricks that can be used for building. These ecobricks can be used in any country, and Clemmie focused on how they are used in the African continent.
Clemmie and the Eco Council would like to do more with ecobricks, but first we need to decide whether we will make and use them at school, or send them to another country for use. Watch this space.
News from the Sports Desk…
It has been amazing to see so many children coming to our ‘Come & try’ netball sessions over the last few weeks – what an enthusiastic and sporty bunch we are at The Priory! With 28 fantastic children coming to the sessions, it was incredibly hard to whittle it down to just 10, but you can see our final squad below. They will be training hard for their first match on 23rd November.
Well done to this superstar for a fantastic haul of medals for a recent swimming competition!
Her specialism is butterfly.

Golden ties are very sought after and pupils are delighted when they have earned on in our awards assembly.
We seem to be running short of the elasticated golden ties, so if you have one at home, please could you pop it back into the school office. Thanks
