Cornwall County Cross-country Finals 2019 Newquay
On Thursday 28th March, Aalayah represented Troon C.P. School and the Peninsula schools at this year’s Cornwall county cross-country finals. She qualified for the event from the previous regional finals and went in to the race full of confidence. The Year 6 race was run over 1620m on a beautiful and sunny March day. It may have been even too warm for ideal running conditions but that did not affect Aalayah one bit. She ran an amazing race in a large field of athletes to finish in an amazing 3rd place, for the whole of Cornwall. Aalayah was awarded her bronze medal for her third place finish but also a gold medal for finishing 1st out of all of the year 6 girls from the Peninsula schools. That is an absolutely brilliant achievement and everyone at Troon school is extremely proud of her.
Big Battery Hunt
The Big Battery Hunt is a back for year 2! Last year we managed to recycle 4 million batteries as part of our nationwide battery recycling initiative funded by Duracell. Young people in schools across the UK are encouraged to think about the importance of recycling, and then challenged to collect as many used batteries as they can. The aim is for each pupil to contribute to an overall total and help us beat last year’s total! Each family will have been given a collecting box this week and there will be a big collection box outside the office when it arrives to empty your batteries into.
The last day for bringing in any batteries will be 24th May. Prizes that could be won for school are:
A 2 night class trip to the sustainability centre,
A 3 year subscription to MyMaths worth £1000,
£2000 of school equipment,
Certificates & Trophies!
