Sports Day Tug of War
On Monday 17th July we held our annual sports day tug of war. Each team (Romans, Vikings, Normans and Saxons) took a turn to 'tug' against each other. It was a fierce competition but the points won were added to the week's sport events results and the overall winner was announced to be..........Vikings. The runner up was Romans closely followed by Saxons and then Normans. Well done to everybody who took part.
The whole school celebrated 'shine week' on the week beginning 10 July 2017. Our theme this year was 'Amazing Animals' and pupils had the opportunity to learn some fabulous facts about many animals from around the world. We had lots of activities ranging from animal tessellations to baking 'Tiger' cake. A fun week was had by all as you can see from the photographs.
On Tuesday 11th July the whole school celebrated a cultural day learning all about the country Australia. Lots of fun activities took place including Aboriginal Art, making Lamington cake (A Lamington is an Australian cake, made from squares of sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut), playing cricket and learning generally about Australian culture.
Jack Petchey Award
Jack Petchey Award Winners - Spring 2017
The two winners for the Spring Term were announced recently at our end of term Easter assembly.
The first winner was Preston who is in Year 11. Preston has recently completed a very successful work experience placement. The staff were full of praise for his work with them and gave him a glowing report. He is a kind and friendly pupil who has matured into a very responsible young man. A fantastic role model to everyone, Preston will be sorely missed when he leaves us later this year.
The second winner is Charlie in GB class who has worked extremely hard on his communication skills. Charlie has improved immensely recently and now joins in activities that previously he was reluctant to do. His confidence has grown and he is a pleasure to have in all of his lessons. A very well done to Charlie.

Ex pupil visits Cedar Hall
On Wednesday 7th June we were lucky enough to have an ex pupil come back to visit us to tell us of his achievements since leaving Cedar Hall. He told us about where he had worked over the years and the different tasks he had done. He then shared his fantastic music skills with us by playing the saxaphone. Finally he amazed us with sharing how he had ran the marathon this year for our school and raised almost £2,000 for us! We are extremely grateful for the funds he has raised and for him taking the time to come and see us.
Super Heroes visit Cedar Hall
On Friday 28th April the school was visited by a group of Super Heroes. They came for the afternoon to see the pupils and play some fun team games. We were also lucky enough to have a couple of super cars arrive and everyone had the opportunity to sit in the cars and have their photos taken. The afternoon was arranged by the local Thundersley community and in particular members from the local businesses in the village. As a school we are extremely lucky to have continued support from the local people and businesses of Thundersley village and for this pupils and the staff of the school are very grateful.
