FIRST DAY EXCITEMENT!!!
Welcome back to all of our students and staff after the six week holidays. Students at Eton Park Junior, Lansdowne and Horninglow Primary all looked very smart in their new uniforms. To mark the start of the new academic year for our new trust partners we had a special assembly with all students to explain our PRIDE values and held a balloon race. Each child was allocated a helium-filled balloon. All balloons were released simultaneously from the three sites and the students were informed that the balloon that travels the furthest will win free uniform from Clothing4 for life. Watch this space to find out who the winner is!!!
With all the excitement of the balloon race the students whipped up an appetite and after their lunch enjoyed some specially made cakes.
Mr Allen, Chief Executive of the Trust said "It's all about the children today. The schools legally became part of the trust in May but we have had to wait until the start of the new school year to unveil it."
The Trust Team would like to thank all staff at each of our academies for making the day so much fun for our students. A special thank you to our Sixth Form Team for helping to inflate all of those balloons!!!!!
