As a department we have given our students some incentives for participating in extra curricular clubs. This has been in the form of raffle tickets for attending lunch time and after school clubs, and loyalty cards for our after school clubs/fixtures. At the start of the half term we drew a raffle ticket from 500+ tickets and the winner was Sam (Yr7).

Sam is a keen footballer and so we wanted to ensure his prize was something he would value. We decided to contact our staff PE kit sponsors, Howard Snaith, to see whether they could organise some tickets for Sam to attend the Newcastle match this Saturday at St.James Park.

Not only did they do this, they gave Sam and his Dad box tickets to watch the game, this included a free 7 course meal and open bar. They also kindly offered our department 2 tickets to also attend, and these were given to Mr Bainbridge (our trainee PE teacher).

Sam had a great time (as did Mr Bainbridge), and has sent us some pictures, which you can find below.  A huge thank you to Howard Snaith Coaches who were able to provide this opportunity for Sam!
