All parents should be receiving some information and a disclaimer that needs to be signed regarding going whale watching and looking for sharks. It says on the information that we will be going in a cage to look for sharks. We are not going to be doing this. We will be looking for sharks from the safety of our boat!!!
Also…….I have put some other information in your daughter’s register. I am trying all ways to try to get information to you. I know that not everyone gets the emails Miss Cutts-Watson sends out.

On Wednesday 13th May, the Years 8, 9 and 10 athletics teams were involved in Trafford Schools’ competition. The year 9s finished as runners up and year 8 and 10 came third.

On Thursday 14th May, the Junior and Intermediate Athletics teams competed in Round 1 of the English Schools’ Track and Field Cup. Both teams won their respective competitions – the Juniors by a massive 28 points ahead of second place. They now progress to the North West Regional Finals of the competition, which will be held sometime between 11th and 17th June.
Imogen (Year 10) was chosen to represent the North West at the National Junior Rowing Inter Regional Event in Nottingham on the 25th April 2015.
The event has representation from 12 regions in the country and each region make up a full team of the best athletes from their region from ages of 14 to 16 years both boys and girls.
Imogen competed in WJ15 coxed four and came 4th in the A final contributing 9 points. They competed in very difficult and windy conditions and hope this inspires them to continue competing at this high level.
Imogen only started rowing in September. She is now a very dedicated member of Northwich RC and trains at least four times a week. She and her fellow coxed-four crew members will be participating in the National Schools’ Regatta at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham this Saturday.
Well done to year 8,9 and 10 girls who competed in the Trafford Schools’ Athletics competitions. The Year 8 and 10 teams each finished in 3rd place and the Year 9 team were Runners up.
Congratulations go to Victoria Barlow, Leyla Nealon, Sophie Potter Lizzy Twite, Olivia Ashworth and Francesca Brint who all reached the qualifying standards for the county competition. They are all eligible for selection to represent Trafford at the Greater Manchester Athletics Competition in June.
