Coventry and Warwickshire’s Little Success Stories – July

Coventry and Warwickshire’s Little Success Stories – July

LYNG Hall School took an exciting trip to Twickenham, honoured ahead of the England vs Wales rugby game after graduating from the CBRE All Schools programme. The three-year programme was developed by England Rugby and has introduced over 130,000 students to rugby.

Finham Primary School in Green Lake have been busy preparing for a cycle challenge as part of a citywide campaign to raise money for sustainability of Plas Y Moch – an outdoor adventure centre based in Wales. As frequent visitors of the centre, the students have undertook an eight month project restoring and constructing a bike, utilising individual parts from around the world. Teachers and pupils took turns to cycle as far as possible from their school grounds for over 24 hours.

Big School is soon to welcome 15,00 children from over 30 primary schools to help the transition from primary to secondary school. Actors will help students understand what to expect of senior school and how to meet future challenges.

Students all over Coventry and Warwick enjoyed a trip to London to take part in a big celebration at the Royal Albert Hall. Joining together at the hall were many schools across the UK, forming a 2000-strong choir and accompanied on stage by internationally renowned musicians from the West End. Strictly Come Dancing stars Kevin and Karen Clifton showed a special appearance for the event.

Congratulations to pupils from Paddox, Boughton Leigh and St Marie’s who are through to represent Rugby in the Level 3 School Games Tri Golf competition. The challenge consists of taking part in eight skills challenges with teams rotating around each one. The winners will now represent Eastern Warwickshire on Cov&WarwickJuly 8.
