Nordic Skiing Challenge

By 0

As a school, we would like to congratulate one of our parents for recently completing the Yllas-Levi Ski Marathon, a gruelling 55km Nordic skiing challenge.
Mr Conner is a veteran of the Parachute Regiment who was seriously injured during active service and sadly had to retire. Mr Conner is coming in to school in May to speak to some of our pupils about his experiences and overcoming adversity. His work as a public speaker also raises awareness of the fantastic charities that support veterans.
Mr Conner took part in the ski marathon in Finland with the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST). This is a charitable organisation set up to support injured and sick veterans through positively challenging themselves and getting purpose back into their lives. He set up a Just Giving page prior to completing the marathon to raise some money for the charity. This is still open and if anyone feels able to make a donation, it would be gratefully received. The link to this is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/troy-conner1

Mr Conner appeared in last Friday’s Barnsley Chronicle and also in last week’s Halifax Courier (where he is originally from). If you would like to read the articles they can be accessed through the following links;

Improving our School Meals

By 1

The School Council have met with Lorna from Engie, our school meal provider, to discuss pupil feedback on our school lunches. Lorna kindly listened to our suggestions on how we thought the service could be improved. We also shared what lunches we liked on the current menu. We even got to try some of the mince beef pie, which we all agreed was delicious! Thank you to Lorna  for taking the time to visit with us.
