To celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, we will be taking part in the Keep Britain Tidy campaign by cleaning the school grounds and cut behind Monkwearmouth. Sunderland Council are providing all the equipment and their support. Thank you Mr. Howe for organising this.



We had 73 wonderful entries for this illustration competition so, before we sent the finalists down to Ivan Jones, there were serious decisions to be made. On receipt of the finalists, Ivan said that he and his wife Mal were "bowled over " by the quality of and thought put into the illustrations so found it incredibly difficult to decide on a winner. As yet we have not been told of their decision so fingers crossed everyone. Ivan has asked me to thank everyone who entered and, even if you are not winners this time, he appreciates your amazing ideas and asks you all to keep on drawing.


The winning entry will be announced at our Drop In on the afternoon of Friday 18th March.
