Terrific Triathletes!

Some of our KS2 children were lucky enough to take part in the Brownlee Mini Triathlon at York Sport!

The Brownlee Foundation events have been set up by Alistair and Jonny so they can give something back to the community. This event at York Sport gave Key Stage 2 pupils from schools across York an opportunity to try the disciplines of the triathlon – swimming 50m in the pool, cycling 800m on grass and running 300m – with every child receiving a t-shirt beforehand and a medal and goody bag when they crossed the finish line.

Dunnington vs Lord Deramore’s Match Report

Last Friday saw a double header for the footballers. The A team, who needed to win to book their place in the finals, were up first. A great team display displayed the determination and skill the team play with. Two goals in both halves lead to a fantastic 4-0 win. On the day Zac and Ben RG both got a brace each to ensure Dunnington A are on their way to the finals!

In the second game our B team took to the pitch looking for their first win of the season. In a changed formation of three at the back the team looked comfortable and dominated possession. They had lots of chances to take the lead but were denied by good defending and great keeping. As the game went on it started to feel like we would never get that illusive goal! However, with time running out Dan S got the ball and shot into the bottom corner. This was followed by wild celebrations once the final whistle blew. They had their first ever win!

A thank you to all that came and supported and Dave Scoreby who took the time out to help run the team on the day.Mr Gargiulo

Dunnington’s Smart School Council

This term our school council will look slightly different… We have joined an exciting project called Smart School Councils where the key ethos is that every child has a voice and any idea is worth sharing.

  • School council meetings are held in every classroom which means every child’s voice is heard
  • Our existing school council representatives will make up our Communications Team. However, even if children aren’t on the Communication Team, they still have the opportunity to make a difference by joining an Action Team enabling them to lead change.
  • Action teams explore the feasibility of introducing change, giving ownership of projects to the children.

To find out more, you can visit Smart School Councils here: 

We look forward to sharing with you the exciting ideas the children wish to explore to make our school even better.
