CLAIRES COURT BULLETIN
FROM THE HEAD'S DESK
Congratulations to the boys who last weekend came second in the National Schools Tennis finals, a great result, also to all the boys who played in the David Course Memorial rugby matches. David would have really enjoyed the event.
We have decorated our trees at St Luke's, eaten our Christmas lunches (many thanks to the Year 11 school leaders who helped to run the event) and we are completing our Hampers and Clothing collections for the Passage. We are looking ready for the holiday celebration.
I wish all a happy break and hope you all have a chance to relax after a very busy term. My thanks to Mr Roach for the image he sent me that reflects our approach to sport.
