Non-Uniform Fund Raising Day at JKHS


Friday, 4th February was a non-uniform day at John Kyrle High School, although judging by the group of pupils who lined up to have their photograph taken, it looks more like most swapped one type of uniform for another, ranging from doctors, nurses and cowgirls to cheerleaders, St. Trinian's girls and nuns. The pupils paid £1.50 each to go to school without their usual school uniform. This was £0.50 more than other 'non-uniform' days as they were raising money for two good causes - the Asian tsunami appeal and the school's ongoing Kisiki College project in Uganda.

A group of year seven students also collected £45.00 by going round the classrooms with a bucket. The final total raised is yet to be advised but will be published next week.

February at Ross-on-Wye Heritage Centre
 

The popular 'School Days - Best of your Life' exhibition returns to Ross Heritage Centre on Wednesday, 16th February. This will include photographs and other memorabilia from school days in the late 19th century to modern times. This exhibition will continue until the end of March and will focus on primary school days, with new exhibits being added to those collected during the two previous exhibitions.

During half term week, an activity day will take place on Friday, 18th February at which children will be able to make a Mother's Day bookmark. Children of all ages may pop in to this event between the hours of 10:30 am and 3:00 pm but must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets for the Phoenix Theatre Production "How the other half loves" will be on sale from Saturday 19th February until Saturday 5th March, during Heritage Centre opening hours. Booking is strongly advised as this is likely to be a popular event.



Strange but true . . .
 

After collecting information and taking photographs throughout the week, I tend to spend Monday evenings, often into the early hours of Tuesday morning building these news pages and getting them on line. As most local people are in bed by the time I finish this exercise, these Ross-on-Wye news pages are read by regular viewers in Australia and New Zealand before they are seen in Ross-on-Wye.

Following the 'try it for two weeks' television advertising campaign, I decided to try and get fit by drinking a 'friendly bacteria' yoghourt drink. It has now been three weeks since I began. I still cannot use a skateboard, I had a nasty infection on my right foot, which turned it black and began to spread up my leg, I have spent two days unable to walk properly due to a back injury caused by opening the fridge door (absolutely true) and I have an abscess in my right ear. I have never felt so unhealthy in my life before!
