Tuesday 12/6/2017 - Friday 16/6/2017

Dear Parents and Carers,


What an incredible week we have had here at Balladen!


In our assembly this morning there were so many certificates and awards to give out our assembly was much longer than usual. we recognised many children for the extraordinary efforts in the classroom this week. Some of our incredible children were awarded certificates for being excellent role models. We are always really proud of these children!


Our Year Six children, and some children from Year 5, all took part in the Mini Olympics at Marl Pits yesterday. They had a wonderful time and were superb ambassadors for our school. Some of the children received participation awards for tri golf and other sports. The girls who played netball and our football team ended up being olympic champions! We are really proud of all of the children who took part.


We also had some guitarists who went to Bridgewater Hall to play with the Halle Orchestra. They had a fantastic time and a big thank you to the staff who took them and the children themselves who were, again, excellent ambassadors for our school.


Have a wonderful weekend. I look forward to seeing all of those Monday smiles!


With respect,


Mr Neil Ringrose
