It was one of the highlights of the school calendar tonight as we opened our doors and welcomed our families to celebrate the efforts and achievements of the children throughout the year as part of this years Open Evening! Hundreds of parents and other family members visited the classes and shared the work of the children in books and displays. In each and every room there was a great sense of pride in the children. Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate!
Earlier in the day children from both KS1 and KS2 represented the school at this years Southend inter-schools Mini Games event, once again held at Eastwood Academy. The children had to compete against children from other schools in the borough in a series of activities and team work and perseverance were the words of the day. It was a great event and all of the children represented Earls Hall beautifully. Well done children, we are proud of you!
There were more reasons to celebrate sport as Mr Smith, Mrs Ludlam and Miss Childs took delivery on behalf of the school of the Sainsburys School Mark Platinum Award; the highest level sports mark available. In order to qualify for the mark the team had to demonstrate how we, as a school, support exit routes for our young people into community activities, boost confidence in sport and evidence the highest participation levels and achievement possible. Well done to everyone involved, we are proud of you!
