Another action packed week for the Third Years comes to an end. With Half Term fast approaching, one last big push to keep the merits coming in! Monday’s Tutor Period was spent with the boys completing the DASH test and then having a School Council discussion in their Forms. The individual points made by the Third Year Forms will be passed on to the Whole School Council for consideration.
