This half term's core value: Creation


Theme for this week (29 June- 3 July): ‘Celebrating the creation of new life’


I am delighted to report that the ASHStude event raised a fantastic £1120 for the school. My thanks to Nicole Calvert and her PTA team along with everyone who supported the wonderful event.


This week we look forward to our Sports Day on Thursday. The current forecast suggest sweltering temperatures so students will need to be suitable prepared with suncream and a hat. Plenty of drinks will be made available. This event is a real showcase for PE at ASHS, and along with the brilliant Arts Festival is a very important element of life at ASHS.


On that note- congratulations to Cameron Day and Anna Kilbourn who have been selected for the South Norfolk Athletics team on 30th June.
