Fortnite: Chapter 2 has finally landed

Fortnite: Chapter 2 has finally landed! With a whole host of new in-game features including a brand-new map, more water-based activities, upgraded character skins and a more streamlined arsenal of weapons, this Fortnite is promising to be the best yet.  Almost all of the changes are cosmetic which means the concept of the game remains the same, with players still aiming to be the last man standing.  Players will no doubt Find the game much more enjoyable with so much more to explore.  For parents and carers however, it pays to remain vigilant.  

Year 9 Football Team Success

The Year 9 Football Team travelled to Redbridge School in their third league fixture of the season.  Having won the previous two games Wildern started badly and were 2-0 down at half time.  A fine second half performance showing both skill and commitment started to turn things around, and Charlie Fox scored an excellent free kick to make it 2-1.  George Hawkins then struck with a well placed penalty before Charlie Fox scored in the final few minutes to secure a 3-2 win!!

Uniform Purchases Uniform Purchases

We have been made aware that SkoolKit have 2 skirt sizes currently out of stock and have been taking customer orders for when these items come back into stock. 
They are working to source these sizes in order to ensure that students have the correct uniform for the start of term. At this stage it may be that not all stock will be ready forthe start of term, however they have assured us that they are working hard to resolvethis issue. The issue is with supply from the manufacturer.
If the stock ordered is not available by the beginning of term, SkoolKit will supply a pair of trousers free of charge to these students so that they have correct uniform for the start of the school year.
Skool Kit have apologised for this unfortunate issue and will keep in contact with school and customers who have placed orders about the arrival of the stock.

TechFest 2019

On Monday 8th July over 200 students and parents took part in our annual awards ceremony called Techfest.  In previous years we have run this event as an Oscars themed night celebrating work from films to art.  Fortunately due to the expanding use of technology at Wildern and in our local primary schools such as St James, Wellstead and Freegrounds Juniors we were delighted to be able to celebrate such a wider range of talents this year.  Students first got to enjoy the festival feel with candy floss, face painting and a range of exciting new techs to try like Virtual Reality.  After this, at the formal awards we recognised work in areas from website design, online tools like Google forms and gaming as well as the original categories like best movie. We also welcomed our visiting colleagues and students from the Silves Sul schools partnership in the Algarve and their contributions for the best international movie.
