West Buckland School’s strength in tennis was on display last week in the Year 3 and 4 North Devon Schools’ tournament at the Tarka Tennis Centre, with two teams qualifying for the final rounds and the A team winning the tournament overall.
All three teams performed well in the pool rounds, with the A and B teams meeting each other in the semi-finals. The A team won that particular battle, meeting Southmead Primary School in the final.
West Buckland are set to take part in the Devon Games in June.
A brilliant effort from students who raised just over £160 for the charity, 'Everything Ellie'. Students took to the streets of South Molton to busk, raising awareness and funds for the charity.
"Everything Ellie hopes to make every day a 'blue sky day' by providing a simple day at the seaside, a break away from the hospital rooms for young people or parents/guardians with young families undergoing treatment for long term, life threatening or terminal illnesses such as Cancers and Leukaemias."
For more information about the charity, please visit the 'Everything Ellie' website here.
We were visited yesterday at the Devon County Show ground by Prep 6, who performed a range of different songs to the audience in 'The Watering Hole', a central point at the show. Thank you to Mr Dominic Carter for organising such a wonderful performance and well done to Prep 6 who all sang beautifully.
We have had many visitors on the stand so far - alumni, current parents and friends. Our stand (43) is located in avenue A, so do come and join us over the course of the next couple of days if you are attending the Devon County Show.
More photos of our time at the show are available on our Facebook page.
On Tuesday 29 May, West Buckland School will be hosting an Exeter Chiefs rugby camp. The camp is for children, both boys and girls, aged 7 - 14 years and available for those that have either played before or who are completely new to the game.
