At Holy Rood School one of the long standing governors, Derek Skitt, very generously paid £500 to buy two new football strips for the Y3/4 and Y5/6 teams. The children chose the colours and on their first run out the Y3/4 team won 6-1, but the Y5/6 team just lost 2-1. However, both games were played in an excellent spirit and the children certainly looked the part!
Derek has been a governor at Holy Rood for over 30 years and Chair for 25, and is retiring at the end of this summer term. He has given the school invaluable service and will be a tremendous loss to the governing body which was rated outstanding at the last Ofsted.
