Fallibroome recently hosted a New Age Kurling competition for local Cheshire schools resulting in them attending the Cheshire and Warrington County Final at MMU, Crewe.
The first team of Darcey Williams, Myles Vernon, Toby Goodwin and Maddie Webber fought in tough competitions and unfortunately did not get into the medals. Team 2 with John Hodkinson, James Cashmore, Oscar Bottley and captain Amelia Wilkins fought hard to win all their games, and after a very close final walked away with the gold medals and a trophy.
Fallibroome 2 had not had it all their own way as three of their matches had gone to tie breaks. All students had a fantastic day, competing in a new sport. Hopefully we will be able to raise some funds and purchase our own kit, enabling this game to be delivered to more students.
Congratulations to all students, and thanks to Mr Hammond and Mr Rix for supporting Mrs Heathcote with this trip.

Well done to all the performers from the Fallibroome Trust schools who took part last night at The Fallibroome Academy Hall. The show was put on in a true spirit of collaboration and addressed important issues to a packed audience.
Pupils from Adlington Primary School, Broken Cross Primary School, Fallibroome Academy, Nether Alderley Primary School, Upton Priory School, Whirley Primary School and Winsford Academy all gave their best and sent the audience home uplifted.
This week is Creativity Week at Fallibroome Academy and there will be activities all week based on the theme of Global Warriors.
Throughout Creativity Week there will be Plastic Bottle Recycling points dotted around the school site (including the canteen area). Our intention is to collect in as many plastic bottles as possible. At the end of the week the Communities will run a competition to guess how many we’ve accumulated.
Students from the Trust’s two secondary schools came together last term to discuss the establishment of a Trust Student Council. Meetings were held at Winsford and Fallibroome Academies to allow students to introduce their schools to their peers and discuss possible actions for a joint Council.
The Council will focus on joint actions to improve Recycling and worked up ideas for a Trust-wide ‘Pledge’ of opportunities that students would be able to undertake in their secondary years.
They also agreed to connect with Fallibroome’s partner schools in South Africa and enjoyed meeting their fellow Council members at Grabbouw High School in a Skype conference last week.
Trust students and staff were shocked to hear of a tragedy at a school near to Grabbouw which resulted in the death of four students.We have sent our condolences and support via a Facebook link and encourage all our readers to do the same.

The weather forecast for today suggests that we are likely to have heavy snow showers between 3pm and 6pm. As the ground is already very cold, this snow is unlikely to melt and this may make the car park treacherous, particularly as parents attempt to leave the site after tonight’s events. With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the following events that were scheduled for this evening:
Year 9 Information Evening
We do not expect the poor weather to interrupt the school day today.
Our site staff will also be in school very early in the morning to clear any snow that has fallen overnight so we expect to open as normal tomorrow. If these circumstances change, we will update our website accordingly. While we are always reluctant to allow the weather conditions to disrupt our activities, we think it is wise to avoid trying to keep the site open into the evening.
We will decide upon an alternative date for the Year 9 Information Evening and communicate this to parents in due course. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
