SPORTS DAY T SHIRTS: A heads-up for new parents about House Colour T Shirts for Sports Day. Your child will need to compete in a plain-ish T-shirt in their House Colour.  Inventors = Blue, Explorers = Red, Discoverers = Green.  Mr. Cusack usually circulates a house membership list shortly before the day, or ask in the office for your child’s house name. You can order a plain Fruit of the Loom T shirt here to save that last minute dash round John Lewis looking for the right colour in the right size.
