Year 8

Team Discovery

 

Welcome back to another exciting term here at Devon. This term is action packed with opportunities for your child to participate in like the school production, sports exchanges, enrichments, cross country, MANA reward days and lots more. I encourage your child to participate in as much as they can and give their personal best in all that they do. Team Discovery is aiming to win this Term’s House Competition after narrowly finishing second in Term 1 and Term 2, so get ready for the green machine to be stepping up!

P.E. – Monday and Wednesday (Cross Country focus for the first 6 weeks)
