The Year 13 Leavers took each other on (Girls -v- Boys) in what was a very competitive charity netball match, ending in a draw (15-15). A number of students and staff came to support and cheer on the sides as they battled it out for the winning position. Supporters donated to 'Inspired by Keira' in order to watch the game from either the viewing area or court-side in the Jonathan Edwards Sports Centre.

Jazz Night, held at the Highbullen Hotel last week was a phenomenal success, with a great turnout of students, parents and staff in attendance, all of whom had come to see and hear the brilliant sounds of the West Buckland Jazz band. It was fantastic to see so many people up dancing and enjoying the music from our very talented group.
Thanks must go to the West Buckland School Foundation for organising the event.
