A special congratulations to Trinity, who has won a £10 voucher for Perfect Plaice on Union Road, as our top earner for the half term. It seems like we will have our first Year 7 Gold Club members before too much longer!

A reminder to students to pick up their orders from me, Monday to Thursday after school. There are lots of orders that have been waiting to be collected for a long time! Year 11 students should be saving up their Vivos for the prom tickets and leavers’ hoodies – it might seem like a long way off but you can be earning a lot of Vivos between now and then.

Finally, thank you to those students who have put their names forward to be Vivo Ambassadors. We’ll be meeting early next half term.

Keturah’s Town Team Success

keturahYesterday, Wednesday 15th October, Accrington Academy hosted the annual Hyndburn and Ribble Valley X-Country championships.

Ten schools across the district competed in wet and windy conditions across a very challenging course. Rhyddings took a team of 45 athletes across five year groups to participate in the championships.

Our biggest success story was that of Keturah Bradley in Year 9, who finished in 7th place out of 88 competitors.

This place secured her a spot in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley town team where she will represent the district at Witton Park in February. From there Keturah will have the opportunity to represent Lancashire in the prestigious English schools X-Country championships, which is the biggest school athletics event in the world.

Good luck Keturah, and well done to all our athletes!

It looks like Year 7 are streaking ahead – Mrs Reilly must be very happy about that! Congratulations also to our top 5 form groups: 7RM, 7BN, 7AG, 8CW and 7KC. Our senior students have a bit of catching up to do – 7RM alone were awarded over 400 Vivos!

A reminder that if you are ordering your rewards from the ‘My School’ section of the vShop, you need to collect them from me after school Monday-Thursday. Keep an eye on other rewards that you purchase as some items require you to download an Argos voucher after purchase, and these vouchers do have an expiry date.

Finally, thank you to the students who have put their names forward to become Vivo Ambassadors. I’ll get you together next week to start talking about your roles.

Miss Bedwell.

Yr11 Netball Success

yr11 netballOn Wednesday 8th October the Year 11 netball team travelled to Accrington Academy for the annual Hyndburn & Ribble Valley Tournament. Nine schools from the district were entered into this year’s competition.

Captained by Beth Rothera, the team started off on a high winning their first game 8-0 against Norden in only seven minutes. Their success didn’t stop there. They continued to beat their opponents losing only one game to St Augustine’s, who eventually topped the competition.

Rhyddings finished as runners-up of the whole tournament. It was an impressive performance and a great way to end their netball success at Rhyddings.

Mrs O’Brien’s player of the tournament goes to Charmaine Kelly and she would like to commend Maizee Cryne, who stepped up from Year 10 to play for the team and out of her usual position, performing at a very high level.

Well done to all the girls and I hope you continue with netball after your time at Rhyddings!
