This week in pictures
Have a look at some of the fantastic sporting achievements we have made this week! Way to go everyone!
At Holy Cross we are working hard to make PE something that every child can be proud of and give a go. We are very lucky to have so many keen, active and talented children in our school and we want to give them the chance to share and develop these skills even further.
Mr Driscoll is our PE Leader. If you would like to find out more or have any requests or suggestions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
We did it again!
We have been awarded the Gold School Games mark for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive sport in 2016/2017! The second year in a row!
Our thanks to all the children, staff and parents who helped us with this incredible achievement!
Our Holy Cross School Sports Ambassadors!
We love to be active, in all different ways! Some of us love team sports, others love walking and others love individual challenges.
Come and see us if you have any suggestions for PE in our school.
