Last Sunday, Harriet and Trixie represented Bishops Nympton School as an individual competitor in the North Devon Schools Show Jumping League. Harriet did really well (on a pony she hasn’t had very long) and Trixie behaved beautifully. They did a lovely clear round at 50cm. Well done Harriet. Great effort.
Four intrepid maths challengers travelled to Wellington School on Saturday to represent our federation. Two children from each school arrived bright and early to take on some really tough questions, cheered on by their families. The challenge is an annual event (by invitation) and this year forty schools took part from as far as North Somerset and Cornwall. Both private and state schools competed. Seth and Emily represented Bish Nym whilst Charlotte and Lily flew the colours for East Anstey. I am delighted to report that our joint team members were a real credit to their schools and performed really well earning a very creditable score of 13 (the third placed team achieved 19 with 21 winning the challenge). Well done and thanks to the team members and their families.
As you will know, we had aimed to have the DVDs of our excellent Summer production – Shakespeare Rocks! ready for September. Unfortunately we have been significantly delayed by a number of technical issues during the production process. Many apologies for this, however, I am now able to confirm that the DVD of Shakespeare Rocks will be available from Monday 30th October for full release. This means that if you have already put down a deposit or expressed interest / reserved a DVD, your copy will be available from the office straight after half term (balance will be payable upon receipt as appropriate). Apologies once again for the production delay.
If you would like a DVD but have not yet reserved one; or you would like additional copies, new orders can now be taken (with a very short production time).
Do also watch out later this term for some other exciting releases before Christmas.
Twenty two of us once again braved the elements but also the beautiful open moor on Saturday. Conditions started bright but ended wet as we made our way from Dulverton.
We finally raced (quite literally in some cases) across the open moor to our finish at Anstey (Molland Moor) gate. Over eight miles completed and we were even joined by friends from other schools. Well done everyone. Team selections next! 😃
Fantastic first day! The group gathered at Tiverton Parkway.
Then we met Paddington on arrival at London.
We visited Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens for lunch and saw Charley and the Chocolate Factory in the West End show.
Covent garden was next to explore and Pizza Express was our dinnertime venue. We looked at Leicester Square and Chinatown before arriving safely at our Hostel.
More from day 2 to follow…
