On Wednesday 7th June the Year 3 & 4 Tri-Golf team went to Herne Bay High School for the East Kent Coastal Tri- Golf competition. Twelve schools entered the competition. The event consisted of twelve golf stations where the players had to win points for their putting, chipping and driving skills. Our Year 3 & 4 team consisted of 5 boys and 5 girls; they listened to the rules and instructions and played with a lot of ability and skill.
Thank you to everyone who wore red today to support the Air Show that takes place later in the summer. I am pleased to say that we have raised an amazing £457. We hope that we will be able to sponsor a plane like we did last year.

On Monday night 15 children were taken by Mr Blake and Mrs Prichard to stay overnight on board HMS Belfast in London, via the school minibus and a trip on a Thames Clipper.
Once aboard the ship, the children took part in a number of practical events: designing their own ship's mug and flag and a private night time tour of the ship.
On Friday 17th March Herne Bay Junior School hosted the annual Schools’ Parliament event. Nine local schools brought their School Council members along for a morning of debates around behaviour in school. Roger Gough, Cabinet member for Education and Health Reform took time out of his busy schedule to act as Chair and he seemed to enjoy it as much as the children!
There were six topics up for debate – attendance, uniform, behaviour for learning, lunchtime, play time and homework. The children whose ages ranged from 6 – 11yrs were full of opinions and ideas relating to all these topics and some great suggestions were put forward for all the schools to take away and discuss in their own setting.
All in all a hugely successful morning bringing children together to learn the art of debating.
