Year 5 Taster Week, Armed Forces Week and the Commando Chef!

It’s been another busy week at All Saints.  We have had Year 5 students in all week from a range of primary schools offering them taster days at All Saints.  Talking with the students they all said they enjoyed their visits and would be coming back to our open mornings and thinking about applying here next year.





Also, this week marked the start of Armed Forces Week with raising the Armed Forces Day Flag outside Plymouth Guildhall. All Saints student Cadets and CFAV’s from across Plymouth and the surrounding area joined Air Cadets, Royal Navy, and a host of City dignitaries to mark the occasion at the King George VI Flagpost in the city centre, providing the flag party and lining the way as an honour guard.  All Saints Detachment are currently recruiting and if you are interested, or know someone who might be do go down to the cadet hut next to the Brunel building on Tuesday’s between 7pm-9pm or Thurs 7pm-9pm.  Alternatively you can call them on 01752 261525.







On Wednesday we had a visit from the Commando Chef! Colour Sergeant Mike Beaton came in to speak to our students about the importance of nutrition and exercise. CSgt Beaton gave several cooking demonstrations, saying that to understand and gain a knowledge of cooking healthy meals is a foundation stone for a healthy lifestyle and a physically demanding career. Thank you for coming in.

On Monday we have our sports’ day which will, for the first time, be run in a very different way to previous years.  More to follow, including photos next week.  Please see the message below from Mr Gibbons about this.

Enjoy the weekend.

Next Monday 1st July, we are holding our Sports Day on site. Students are really excited but should remember the following:

  • They should arrive to school in PE kit (no leggings please)
  • Trainers are needed
  • They can wear a top to represent their House Colour (i.e. Scott= Red top). If this is not possible then a PE top is appropriate.
  • A water bottle, as their will be water stations available for these to be refilled.
  • Hat or sun cream in the event of hot weather.

Finally due to the Sports Day being non-traditional, the day will be students only. Therefore parents will be unable to spectate.
