Head for the Day!

This Friday is the last day of term. You may recall that during the Tenner Relay, an auction was held for the position of ‘Head for the Day’.
This lot was won by a consortium of 3 students from years 9 and 10 and this Friday they are claiming their prize!
Consequently there will be a free non-uniform day, lunch and break times will be longer than usual, and if you visit Mr Mulcahy’s office you may be surprised by who you find in his chair.
