Our very own Marathon Runner!
This Sunday Miss Glenister will be taking on the challenge of running her 4th marathon! She was lucky enough to get a ballot place for the London Marathon in October and has spent the winter training for this day. She is fundraising for the National Autistic Society as she has an autistic son of her own. Having done marathons before, Miss Glenister is fully aware of how exhausting and painful it is going to be so would appreciate as much support as she can get!

And our very own Dressage Champion!
On Easter Saturday, Demi in Year 6 and her pony Charlie went to Bury Farm in Aylesbury, to represent Berkshire and Holy Trinity School at the NSEA (The National Schools Equestrian Association) County Dressage Championships. Demi came first and won the National Schools Novice Championship! Amazingly, Demi was representing the only primary school in the competition. All the entries were from secondary schools! Scores show that Demi and Charlie also won the competition by a large margin. Well done Demi and Charlie!

Plastic Bottle Recycling
We have now recycled over 5000 bottles earning over £260 for school so far and we remain second in the Green Redeem league tables behind a much larger school. Thank you to every one who is contributing, including those who kept all their bottles over the holiday period and some of you who are even collecting bottles from your work places which gives us a great boost! These bottles are a fantastic commodity - clean and unadulterated by other waste they are in demand and you know they will be recycled. Every bottle counts!
Don't forget - Year 6 Bake Sale after school today!!
Funds raised last term - many thanks to all the parents who volunteered their time to ensure the Easter Egg Hunt and Disco took place! Together these events raised over £700!!!

Those who have previously agreed to have a board will be put forward for a board for the fair - please let Mr D'Costa know if this is a problem.
