On Wednesday 10th January 2018, we received a surprise visit from Great Britain and England hockey captain Alex Danson MBE. Our commitment to developing our students to be the best they can be in competitive school sport was commemorated with a special assembly hosted by Alex, where Mr Nelson was presented with our special School Games Platinum Award and our Play Leaders had the opportunity to take part in a hockey masterclass with the two-time Olympic medallist.
With the introduction of our new multimedia room this term, we have created a different type of newsletter letting for you to watch and find out what has been going on at Cleves this term. Note, that although it is a Youtube video, it is set as 'unlisted' and therefore cannot be found unless you have the direct link.
Cleves Choir performed with a local adult choir, Walton Voices last weekend and absolutely stole the show! They performed brilliantly on their own and combined with the adult choir of 65 voices without any hesitation whatsoever. Mr. Kilhams was extremely proud of what they achieved and they are already asking when Cleves Choir will be performing with Walton Voices again. It was a fabulous evening and raised over £500 for the White Lodge Centre, a local charity that helps disabled children and adults.
We were delighted to receive a letter from the DfE this morning which stated that Cleves is only 1 of 120 primary and secondary schools in the UK to be awarded the Gold School Games Mark for the past five years. We now have the opportunity to apply for Platinum status which we will be working on in October. Congratulations to all of our staff, parents and pupils who contributed hugely to this award and continue to promote healthy lifestyles and recognise the importance of physical activity.
