We were delighted to welcome Andrew Smith’s family back to school on Tuesday March 29th. Andrew sadly passed away nearly three years ago after a long illness.
Andrew was a fanatical basketball player who was rarely seen in school without a bouncing ball by his side.
His head of year Mr Endersby ran an ultra-marathon last spring to raise money for a permanent memorial to Andrew, and we are now the proud owners of a new basketball hoop on our playground. Our year 7 basketball team were keen to try this out!
Thank-you to those who supported Mr Endersby with his fundraising, and thank-you too to Andrew’s family for coming in and inaugurating the use of an enduring commemoration of this remarkable young man.
