Twenty two primary school teams competed for the silverware at this year's kit car grand prix. As usual there were thrills, spills, some spectacular crashes and some skillful overtaking - and as the commentator said, heats were won and lost on the teamwork and practice of the pit stops.
Our Model United Nations General Assembly is taking place today (MUNGA). It is one of few such events hosted by UK schools/colleges to feature a whole year group. After a few days of research and preparation for the students, and a quite a few weeks of preparing the event by staff, it all came together.
Noreen Daniels, a member of staff at UCTC, has been recognised by the Royal Humane Society for her part in saving the life of a student who suffered a cardiac arrest whilst at School. Joshua Efford and his parents were at UCTC this week to say a personal thank-you to Noreen.
Just a reminder of some advice to all parents/carers and students about being safe coming to and from school in the darker, winter months. Wear something bright, and always have working lights/reflectors on your bike when cycling. More information here.
