Sports Personality- Thursday 25 March

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.

Urgent: Sports Coaches Required

Preston Lodge High School are in urgent need of new sports coaches.

Preston Lodge High School are soon to start a “Fit for Girls” class and are in urgent need for a Coach/Parent/Volunteer to take this class of girls.

The class will run on a basis of letting the girls chose the activities they would be interested in doing and doing them in a 4 week block or on a week to week rotational basis. This is to target all girls to attend an activity that will keep them fit and healthy throughout their time at Preston Lodge High school.

If you are interested please contact Mr Bennion at the school (01875 811170).

This is an exciting new opportunity not to be missed.
