RNLI Assembly

In assembly today we were visited by Linda and Alex from the Royal National Lifeguard Institution. They spoke to us about the work of the lifeboats in Southend and told us how we can be safe when we are near the sea. Linda and Alex showed us videos of lifeboat rescues, including a video of a rescued dog. We saw some of the equipment that is used and Mrs Graham and Mr Swanwick even had a race to see who could get dressed in all of the clothing the quickest! #year5 #Year6 #Year3 #Year4 #Wholeschool

Year 5/6 netball

On Wednesday 2nd March the girl’s netball team journeyed to Garon Park in Southend to play in a tournament. They drew their first game having several attempts at goal, only to have them thwarted by strong winds. They were then defeated in their second match. Not allowing this to dishearten them, they gave each other plenty of encouragement and this boost helped lead them on to win their next two matches. The results were as follows: West Leigh 0 v 0 Our Lady of Lourdes West Leigh 0 v 1 Thorpe Hall West Leigh 7 v 0 Fairways West Leigh 2 v 0 Richmond Sadly, bad weather meant that the rest of the tournament had to be cancelled. This will now be continued on Wednesday 5th June. Fortuna
