Our Sport, Learn and Move Project
Last year, Year 5 were very fortunate to have Darrell in from Plymouth Argyle running a project on the importance of healthy eating and exercise. Holy Cross were then chosen, out of all the Year 5 schools in Plymouth, to play in a penalty shoot-out against Stoke Damerel at Argyle.
This year we are fortunate to have the same project running for our new Year 5's and look forward to welcoming Darrell back every Thursday.
