Head Teacher Blog w/c 23rd Sept
This week has been particularly exciting for Junior 1 who went on a residential to Walesby with Langar Primary School. We try and work closely with Langar as they also feed into Toot Hill enabling the children to develop friendships that will last into secondary school. All the children have had a fantastic time doing a wide range of activities and have all tried something new. It was my absolute pleasure to join them today and see them in action there are some brilliant photos on twitter so I would advise you to have a look and see what they got up to: https://twitter.com/gunthorpecofeps
A special well done to Summer from Junior 2 who ran in the the Equinox 24h race over the weekend. She did incredibly well and raised money for the Hartley Joe Charity. I have challenged the staff to get involved next year and see if we can put together a team! https://www.equinox24.co.uk/
