Ripon Cathedral School Update
Week ending Friday 28th June 2019
Healthy, Wealthy and Wise
Thank you to all the staff for their hard work and to all parents and family members who came along to lend their support to the competitors. A final thanks to the Friends for selling ice creams at the end, definitely the kind of day when you do a roaring trade!
Early Years Sports Day
Super storybook summer fair
Of course, such a grand total could not have been reached without everyone who attended and supported, and the generous sponsorship by Renaissance Hair and Beauty Boroughbridge, Bright Star Fireworks and Hambleton Roofing.
This fundraising will benefit the school hugely. This year the Friends have already helped us to purchase Chromebooks and Ipads and subsidised the cost of Forest School sessions. But in addition to that, it was a super, community focussed day and a lot of fun was had by all.
Dear Friends of the School and Parents of Year Six,
Thank you so much for giving up your time to help us put together such a lovely picnic, for all of us and for our Spanish friends. We appreciate all your hard work and we would like to say a big thank you to each and every one of you for bringing in such fantastic foods and delicious desserts.
Your time that you have spend on us has been amazing, generous and greatly appreciated. Your kindness has brought smiles to our faces and a memory for our Spanish friends to take home with them.

Making the Most of Local Attractions
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!
