Important notice for all those going on the 2015 Ski Tour.

  • Passports for all pupils traveling to the US with us on the February 2015 Ski Tour must be given to Mr Bradley on or before Friday 12th September. If you do not yet have a valid passport then you must see Mr Bradley ASAP.
  • US Immigration (Department of Homeland Security) require everyone entering the USA to be authorised to travel under the ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) before they go. We will be applying for this authorisation for each member of the group and require their passport to do so. The ESTA lasts for two years unless the passport expires before that. If the passport expires a new ESTA will be required at the cost of approximately $15
  • If you require the passport for a family holiday at Halloween or Christmas then the passport can be returned to you after the required information has been extracted. Or it can be kept securely in the school until the ski tour.

Year 8 have been busy planning and designing contraptions to propel a tennis ball as far as possible.

On Friday 20th June the contraptions were built and perfected for the competition. For once we were bathed in sunshine as we measured the distances covered out behind the Sports Hall. Year 8 are to be congratulated for their creativity and ingenuity! The winners were 'The Tankatrons' in 8M comprising Mark McNeill, Peter McConaghie, James McCormick, James Currie and Jensen Daley with a winning throw of 31.7 m. The Rainbows from 8M were in second place with a throw of 19m and third place was awarded to The B Team from 8W.
