Wow that went quick...

Time really does fly when everyone’s having fun.

It’s been a footballing bonanza this week in Pool House, with all bar one game played being football.

Bring on the new term

Just a short one.

Only a three-day week this week, but we certainly hit the ground running.

The upper juniors enjoyed two games of football and a game of skittles. It was fantastic to see the level of maturity on show because of the slippy, wet and very puddled playground. The upper…
