Today 8 Lions met at the school (at 6:30 AM!) ready to travel to Boleslawiec for the Lower Silesian TAG rugby Finals. 31 teams from all over Lower Silesia competed to be regional champions and the standard was very impressive. Our Lions tried hard but were facing tough opposition. Players we were against have been playing TAG rugby both at school and out of school for club teams for many years. Most of our team have only been playing for a few months. But still, we drew 1 game (which we should have won) and lost our other 3 games by small margins. We scored good tries in every game, we never gave up, and kept playing good rugby. Most importantly our players were smiling and enjoyed their day, despite feeling a little disappointed. With all our recent success, our Lions have got used to winning, but this time we settle for 10th out of 12 in our age category. We are still the top team in Wroclaw and can now look to keep improving and be ready for an exciting new season in March/April!! Player of the tournament: Yash - He has really grown in confidence this season and is now a dangerman in our team, always looking for the ball and finding gaps in the opposition defence to score some great tries.

To celebrate the centenary of the births of the wonderful Children’s author, Roald Dahl, the art department and the primary school painted a colourful mural in the playground based on the vivid illustrations of Quentin Blake that decorate all of Roald Dahl’s books. Congratulations to all involved in this splendid project.

Our carnival day will be held on Friday 5th February and we have some special activities planned! We have arts and crafts, carnival games, Zumba, a disco and of course the children can wear fancy dress costumes. The best dressed children will win prizes!
Children should come to school wearing their costumes, but they will be doing Zumba and playing outside during the day so please think carefully when choosing an appropriate costume. All children must bring their gym shoes for Zumba, children who don’t have proper sports shoes will not be able to take part and will sit and watch.
Years 1, 2 and foundation will be walking to Dębowa for Zumba at 8.30 so please be at school on time.
Please leave lunches in the classroom in the morning and not in the dining room and if possible, send lunches that do not need heating up.
If you have any questions about carnival feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to having lots of fun and seeing all the fantastic costumes.

On Monday the 11th of January, Primary and Secondary students attending the Ski Camp in Janske Lazne, Czech Republic need to be at school at 07:30, as the group will be leaving at 08:00.
Updates during the trip will be posted to this page, so check back to find out what's been happening on Ski Camp.
Camp Update - 12th of January
The children were very excited to be travelling to Janskie Lazne, our ski resort destination and chatted most of the journey. As we got closer to Czech Republic more and more snow blanketed the hillside, which was a good sign. We arrived to the hotel in great time and were able to sort out all of the ski boots, skies and helmets just in time for a delicious dinner.
The second day in Janskie Lazne was ski day! The whole group made it to the top of Cerna Hora, the tallest mountain in our resort. There at the top children were split into small groups depending on their experience of skiing. The weather was pretty harsh as it was snowing all day. However, the kids did extremely well skiing in those conditions.
