St Cuthbert’s Virtual Sports Day – Tuesday 9th June

As you know, Sports Day is usually one of the highlights of the school calendar. Due the current situation unfortunately we can’t hold an actual sports day. What we can do however is hold a virtual Sports Day. This will take place on Tuesday 9th June. Teachers will provide instructions to all pupils via Teams, there will be demo videos for each activity and points to be won for pupils’ Houses. Extra points can be earned by pupils – with parental permission – sharing photos/videos from the day on the school twitter account @stcuthbertsrcp  These points will be counted and the winning house will then be announced on Wednesday. We hope it is an enjoyable day for all.
