Ripon Cathedral School Update
Week ending Friday 21st June 2019
Welcoming our Spanish Friends
On Thursday the Spanish children had a break from school when they went to York to visit the Castle Museum, Minster and National Railway Museum. Today they have gone to the Forbidden Corner with our Year 6 children and tomorrow they will come along to the summer fair. We expect they will need to have a good rest when they arrive home!
This amazing exchange programme could not happen without the hard work of many members of staff and parents, thanks to all of them but a special mention to Mrs Shawcross and Mrs Binks for leading and coordinating both the visit to Spain and the activities of the visitors here.

Oscar's Holiday Club
We have arranged with the PFI company who manage the school site to have access to school for Oscar's in the last two weeks of the summer holidays. Unlike schools in NYCC sites, we do not have full (or free!) access to school in the holidays, which can make running the holiday club more challenging. However, we are exited that we have started to plan for the summer holidays and can confirm that our summer holiday dates are:
Tuesday 20th, Wednesday 21st, Thursday 22nd August
Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th, Thursday 29th August
Booking is now open!

Summer Fair: Only one day to go! Saturday 22nd June sees our summer fair, running from 12 until 3.30pm. A fantastic family event open to the whole community: Bar, BBQ, Forest School activity and bouncy castle plus many more stalls and a special guest. As well as sponsorship from Hambleton Roofing, we have gained further generous support from local fireworks' company 'Bright Star Fireworks' and Renaissance Hair and Beauty Boroughbridge, which is amazing - thank you!
Fancy Dress Fun Run: Thank you for all sponsor forms and money. There will be a prize for the child who raises the most sponsor money! Also remember that runners can ‘dress up’ if they wish and there will be a prize for best fancy dress too! Good luck!
Summer Fair Helpers: As much help as possible is always good even of the last minute variety, so if you can help please contact the Friends.
Competition Tent: All children will be welcome to enter our competitions for the summer fair. We will be holding a Lego model, miniature garden, and drawing a picture on the story book theme competitions. New for this year, parents are invited to put their baking skills to the test. All cakes will be sold through a silent auction. The cake which raises the most money will win a prize for its creator!
School Disco: 5th July sees the last disco of the school year. Please see our lovely poster for full details. Our thanks to Lily who has done an amazing job this year, making sure all our posters are colourful, eye catching and full of useful information!
