Charity Foodbank Donation

Well done to Springfield Student Council Charity Committee member Sophia Bruni in 11D who organised a collection of food items to be brought in by Springfield pupils which were then donated to the Trussell Trust Portsmouth Food Bank (Kings Road Church).  Mr Williams, Head of Year 10 who oversees the Student Council meetings took the donation down to the Trussell Trust Foodbank at Kings Road Church today (Tuesday 14th March).  They were very grateful to receive the items. Thank you to all the pupils who kindly donated to this charity.

The Power of Love

Year 9 pupils took time to think about relationships during their Focus Day today. The Soloman Theatre (specialists in communicating messages that result in crime reduction, improved community safety and the promotion of healthy schools and healthy lifestyles) presented a play entitled 'The Power of Love'. The play focused on relationships, decisions based on these relationships, the consequences of these decisions and the impact of social media. A workshop followed the play where pupils were encouraged to debate the important issues raised. The pupils were engaged by an excellent production and follow up.

Farewell to the Library Portacabin

We said a final goodbye to the large portacabin located on the school field (previous home of our school library) during the half term break last week.  After a false start on Wednesday due to the high storm 'Doris' winds the huge lorry arrived on Friday, 24th February to undertake the removal via Homefield Road. We have caught some action photos of the removal which are shown below. Special thanks to the Estate Team for all their efforts and to our neighbours in Homefield Road for ensuring safe access for the lorry.

Personal Development Assembly

We are delighted to welcome PC Hall and his 'sniffer dog' to our Year 9 Assembly on Wednesday 1st March. This is part of the Personal Development curriculum and is an example of how the Police can help keep us safe. PC Hall will set up several activities in the Assembly with teaching staff to show just how effective this support can be. This is the only date he can do for several months and the Year 9 are lucky to have this enrichment.

New Sports Hall Planned

As you may be aware, for some time the school has been working with Portsmouth City Council to look at ways to develop the school's site in order to accommodate further pupils over the long term. The link below is to a letter from the School and Council which contains further information relating to this project, including the conversion of the pool to a sports hall. We will be posting more information about the proposals, including some images, after half term.
