Tonight was Tracy Wain’s final event as Chair of FXP. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy personally and on behalf of all of our students and their families for her tireless work in raising funds for our students.
This year, FXP have helped to raise money for 2 drum kits, amps, e-books for DofE, and this is in no small part down to Tracy and her dedicated team.
Tracy will still be helping out, but will be handing over the reins as chair.
Thank you Tracy for everything you have done!
As always, we would welcome any additional support that parents can give, even if just for one night a year. Please click on the link to FXP’s pages or their Facebook page to see how you could help or send the team a message.
There are some surplus snacks from this evening’s XP’s Got Talent event. Students will be selling these at break time tomorrow to raise additional funds for FXP.
C24 have had a fantastic time watching A Midsummers Night Dream at the Pop up theatre. We are due back to school approximately 3.25pm.
A massive appreciation to staff, parents & students who contributed to the completion of our first DofE canoeing expedition. In particular i’d like to mention Mrs Mawby who lead the expedition and has worked tirelessly in making sure everything ran smoothly. It was a fantastic but extremely tough weekend for the students who all showed amazing grit and endurance. I am very very proud of all involved!
The Silver hiking practice expedition is on Thursday 6th September. Here is the kit list to remind you what your child will need to bring to the bag packing session on Wednesday 5th September 3.15pm – 4.30pm.

All students except C21 and crew Ennis-Hill have been given letters to take home today. We need to check the contact details that we have on file for all parent/carers. We would also like you to provide us with you car registration details, we will be adding you to our permit list for Doncaster Rovers Car Park 3 until your child finishes at XP.
If you need another copy of the letter please ask your son/daughter to come to reception, alternatively you can email email@example.com.
C21 and crew Ennis-Hill will be given their letters on Monday.
Just a reminder that C24 students are going to York this Monday to watch A Midsummer Night Dream at the Popup Shakespeare theatre.

As part of C24’s expedition ‘Can Kindness change the world?’ Kate decided to ask for donations after last nights presentation of Learning. Her aim was to raise £50.00 but thanks to the generosity of parents/carers/family members she raised £102.00!!
Fantastic work Kate!!
Sports Day will take place on Thursday 19th July – the penultimate day of term. Field events as well as the 800m and 1500m will take place in the morning between 9-11am. Track events will take place in the afternoon between 12:30 – 3:15pm. Competitors are currently being decided during crew sessions. Students should obviously bring their full PE kit and include items such as water, sunblock and sun hats. Parents are welcome to attend – please sign in at the gate next to the stand.
This is a big ask but if any parents/carers are attending either of the events this evening at XP/XP East and have a few minutes to spare, please, please, please, speak to one of the FXP crew when you get there!
Unfortunately we are even more sparse on the ground than usual due to work commitments this week, so find ourselves with half the usual crew and double the visitors to serve and we will be split between both schools. We are definitely up for the challenge, but we need your help so we can continue to support the kids!
If you are confident and comfortable to do so, we have raffle tickets that need selling ready for our end of year prize draw on Monday, with some great prizes ranging from chocolates to family tickets for days out!
As always, any help is sincerely gratefully received and genuinely makes a difference to how we can enhance the kids expeditions, whether it be donating your time, your bakes/cakes/books/prizes or by helping us to set up/put away etc.
Many thanks & see you later!
