Some children will be taking part in the football festival at North Stainley next week, we wish them lots of fun.  Parents have been notified separately.
Could your son or daughter be a Cathedral Chorister?
Dr Krippner, the Director of Music at Ripon Cathedral, will be visiting our school to talk to the children during an assembly about the Choristers of Ripon Cathedral and how to become a Cathedral Chorister. All interested children are invited to see Dr Krippner after the assembly for an informal audition. Being a chorister is an outstanding opportunity, so it is very much worth considering!
