Preston Lodge High School’s annual Sports Personality Evening is nearly upon us. Pupils who have attended clubs have been given invites, which allows them and one parent to attend the evening.
The pupils need to let Mr Bennion know by Friday 12 March if they are attending and if a parent is also coming along with them.
Also on the evening we will have an auction and raffle as well as testing the audience knowledge on sport.
The event keeps getting bigger and bigger every year with more pupils attending extra-curricular sport. We would like as many people as possible to come along and help us celebrate the success of our sports teams this year.
