Blog week ending 20th July

Posted on: 20/07/2018

Our WG6 hosted a Community Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care.  Special guests included the new Mayor of Dartford, Councillor David Mote and Mayoress Ellen Mote, Governors, local support agencies such as our PCSO’s, Dartford based companies Laing O’Rourke and Electrosonic, residents from Wilmington Manor Care Home and school alumni.  It was a lovely event enjoyed by all!

Mrs Regan of WG6 said, “The credit should go to our students who were fantastic ambassadors for both schools.  They worked so hard and the feedback I received from our visitors was very complimentary, especially from the residents of Wilmington Manor who didn’t want to leave!  The patience and kindness our students demonstrated was so lovely to see and they were delighted to have met the local Mayor and Mayoress”

The Mayor also congratulated the students on their ‘extremely successful event, which he said, demonstrated true community spirit’.

On Friday 13th July, the weather favoured us once again with a wonderful day for our Annual Sports Day.

A great day had by all with some fantastic team and individual performances. It was wonderful to see all the support with banners and house colours spread across the Heath. 

All competitors put in performances they should be proud of. The support from the student spectators helped them to perform at their best. Thank you to all those involved, from the staff organisers and score keepers, to those competing and cheering on the competitors, each of you played a vital role in the success of the day.
