In February the Co-Op in Mirfield, with their mascot Cooper the Bear, came to talk to all our pupils about the importance of eating "5 A Day". 

Every single child in school was given a bag with an apple, a banana, a satsuma, a pear and a plum!

Thank you Mirfield Co-Op for highlighting how important Healthy Eating is and for the very generous donation of 2100 pieces of fruit!

Enabling Enterprise

Five pupils were invited to attend the "enabling enterprise" event in Leeds this week. The day began with a train journey from Dewsbury. The event was designed to inspire and motivate students as they learn more about the workplace. It aimed to develop their understanding and application of the enterprise skills they have used in school.

The children were also involved in building an argument for or against a negotiation scenario. The day culminated in a debate between teams.
