Principal Update

The school community and outreach work our young people do is a continual delight and inspiration. Last Saturday, students from all year groups represented Avanti Fields School to support Tesco with their in-store donation scheme in partnership with The Trussell Trust and Food Share charities, which aim to support local community foodbanks. We are extremely proud of the efforts, politeness and dedication to the cause shown by all students. They demonstrated the Avanti Way and showed the very best versions of themselves. Thank you to Dipak Patel and Sarah Kurth for your support and organisation of this event.

As we are drawing near to Christmas, please put the following dates into your calendar. Friday 10th December the school will be organising a Christmas Jumper day in aid of Save the Children, and on Friday 17th December we are organising a Festive Friday in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. Please read below for further details.

Sports Updates

The year 9/10 netball team faced some tough competition in their last fixtures, which saw us win one game and lose two. This was an incredible effort from the team, who have only played together this year. A shout out to our player of the match, Anushka W for scoring most of our goals. The team are looking forward to participating in more netball fixtures in the future.
