School News

- Some of the children in Willow took part in the School Games Mark Indoor Athletics festival at Sherburn High School this week. They had to compete in a number of track and field activities including relays, hurdles, jumping and throwing. We were very proud of the way that they conducted themselves and supported each other as a team. Not only that, but they competed brilliantly and won the whole event! Well done everyone!
