Last week was our whole school sports day. Despite the rising temperatures throughout the day students and staff came together in a wonderful celebration of inclusion, participation and sport. It was an incredible day and it was fantastic to watch all competitors.

We have some very talented sportsmen and women. Students were exemplary in their conduct and behaviour and respected every participant, cheering each other on with real encouragement. Of course, we must say a big well done to the Science team, who won the staff relay race with Mr Lineham and Mr Messam rocketing past the PE team to victory.  Overall winners of the day were the Brownlee team. Congratulations to everyone for a wonderful day.

Last week 30 Conisborough students visited Imperial College, London to meet doctors, nurses and research scientists who are racing to fight Tuberculosis. The team at Imperial College call themselves the 'Tuberculosis Hunters' and explained to students exactly how they secured the jobs they hold today. Many of our students won prizes on the day as they gave excellent answers during quizzes but also asked fantastic questions during the Q&A session with the team.

Students are now very aware of the work that goes on behind the scenes when medicine is prescribed and many are considering routes into scientific research they didn't know about before. Well done to all those students who participated!

A number of other events have been taking place this week including transition workshops in primary schools, run by Year 9 students and Dreamkey, a Business Studies trip to the City for a group of Year 9 and 10 students and another group on a journalism trip. Next week many students have the opportunity to attend reward trips.

This will be the final Chronicle of the academic year although I will be sending out an end of term letter next week. The arrangements for the final day are that students will attend lesson 1-3 as normal and then be dismissed from 12.30pm onwards, although if students wish to have lunch before they leave this will be available. Friday 21 July will be the final day of term and will be a non-uniform day for students. This was requested by students in 9R and the Technology staff. Students will pay £1 toward non-uniform day and the money raised will go to the families affected by the Grenfell fire disaster.

Students are reminded to attend school with their normal equipment, including PE kit if they have PE, ready for lessons 1-3.
