Well done everyone who took part in our annual event to raise money for this well deserving local charity. We all enjoyed taking part in fun relay races, wearing our Santa hats and dancing to the Christmas tunes on the playground.
Thank you to all who have already donated through our Just Giving page. If you would still like to make a donation of any amount, please follow the link below. Every little will help Katharine House, and we know they help so many people in the Banbury area.
Merry Christmas everyone!
The postponed Year 5 & 6 girls Football Competition took place this week at BGN school.
We took a team of Year 6 who competed in the Cup, and the Year 5 team competed in the Plate Competition.
Playing against teams from St Mary's Aston Le Walls, Longford Park, Orchard Fields, St Joseph's and William Morris schools both of our teams demonstrated the School Games Value of Teamwork impeccably.
Games of ten minutes on a very muddy pitch proved challenging at times, however team BLS finished the morning undefeated!
Congratulations to all the girls and good luck to the Year 6 team who represent the BGN partnership at the NOSSP finals next week.
This week was the NOSSP Banbury Area In2Hockey festival at Wykham Park Academy.
We took Year 5 and 6 pupils from our after-school Hockey Club, who were joined by their peers from Dashwood, Orchard Fields, St Mary's Aston Le Walls, Hanwell Fields and Hill View school.
The event was played in a round-robin format with every school playing each other. Considering the majority of our team have only been playing hockey games since September, they did extremely well with 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss across the morning.
They continued to show respect to their team, opponents and the officials throughout the competition and finishing 2nd overall was just the icing on the cake. Congratulations - we are very proud of your achievements!
