Lightwater Valley Visit 2016

A big thank you to all staff and students for ensuring our annual rewards day had thrills, action and adventure.


St. Mary’s annual Rewards Day was yet again a great success.  Despite heavy rain early morning, the skies had cleared by the time the buses arrived at the park.  Once again, the students were a credit to the school.  The day was an opportunity for staff to share in the fun and see the students away from the pressures of school. Having exclusivity in the park meant that there was little queuing and the students were able to get real value for money. Even with the huge numbers attending, the day was still relaxing and enjoyable for all and this is a credit to their exemplary behaviour. 

Thank you to the students, staff and parents who supported this visit and made it such a success.

— Mrs R Burrows, Year 9 Student Progress Leader
