Junior Sports Reporters

Hello All,

In partnership with the Blackpool Gazette we are launching our search for Junior Sports Reporters in Blackpool Schools.

As part of the Junior Gazette every Wednesday, we are providing an opportunity for Junior Sports Reporters to see their words going to print as part of the School Games Cross Curricular Competitions for 2014/2015.

Children are invited to create articles based on PE Lessons, After School Sports Clubs or School Games Competitions which will be collated on a weekly basis before the successful reports are selected for inclusion in the Junior Gazette.

We are looking for reports containing a maximum of 250 words and it would be great if the children could take some photographs to go alongside the words.

This opportunity will run for the rest of the school year so we are looking forward to seeing a wide and varied selection of themes being reported on.

We will be collating articles every Friday afternoon to allow us to select those to be featured in the Junior Gazette the following week. With this in mind we would ask that you e-mail all completed reports and any photographs to me by 12.00pm on Fridays.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Changes to School Lunches

As you will know from stories in the news over Christmas the government have changed the nutritional guidelines for schools regarding lunch provision. This will mean a number of changes over the coming days which are aimed at improving our food provision to make it more healthy. I will meet with the student council to discuss these changes and address any of their concerns over the next few days,

Mr Eccles
Head teacher.
