Walton’s Winners at Sport Stafford Borough Awards 2016
Sport Stafford Borough Awards Evening is an annual event that recognises local achievements in sport during the year. The 2016 awards evening took place on Friday 10th March 2017.
World Book Day
Celebrations for World Book Day included students in years 7, 8 and 9 coming to school in fancy dress. Competition was high as students excelled themselves this year with fantastic costumes including Little Red Riding Hood, Gangsta Granny, Dracula, Mad Hatter - to name but a few. Prizes were awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Turn out this year exceeded previous years. The aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading. We hope this fun day encourages our students to read more and so improve their literacy skills and through books explore the world around them.
