On Saturday 23rd October, Wyvern Junior Club said a huge THANK YOU to Reg and Sheila Wilkinson for all the many years they have given to Tennis in our local community.

Reg and Shelia founded the Bishopstoke Tennis Club that then moved to Wyvern. Nick Mort, who now runs the club, has worked with them for over 30 years, and invited others to share their memories of this wonderful couple. You can see from what is written below that they are real heroes of grass roots sport, the sort of people that really are at the heart of sporting successes up and down the country.

We wish them a very happy , well earned retirement.

Almost 2 years ago our year 8 students were asked to submit designs for new village signs for Fair Oak.

The parish council chose three designs – from Rosie, Frances and Jake – to bring together in the final sign design.

On Tuesday 19th October, Rosie and Frances, along with Mrs Burrows, and Mel Stephens and Linda Greenslade from the Parish Council, visited Colin Philips Designer Blacksmith, in the New Forest, to see the final design being realised in steel. It was amazing to see how various parts of the sign have been made – a real testament to the skills of the team of blacksmiths that have been working on their production.

The final signs will be painted to match the original designs and then place them around Fair Oak. We cannot wait to see them.

Thank you to the Parish Council for inviting our students to provide the designs and the Colin Philips and his team for making us so welcome. And congratulations to Jake, Rosie and Frances – who will be able to see their designs up in the village for years to come.

This week is Hate Crime Awareness week and we have welcomed local police into college to talk to students about this issue. The Crown Prosecution Service defines hate crime as “any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice, based on a person’s disability or perceived disability; race or perceived race; or religion or perceived religion; or sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation or transgender identity or perceived transgender identity.

The last national report revealed hate crime is on the rise in England. The Office for National Statistics released data showing a 9% increase in hate crimes against protected groups in the year ending March 2021. Crimes motivated by race showed the largest increase, up 12% from 2020 to 2021.

Through our assemblies, tutor programme and RPS lessons, we work hard to teach students to embrace diversity as a strength and to show respect to all people, whatever their differences.

Last week Year 7 concluded their transition to Wyvern by participating in Activities day. The students were fantastic! They all got involved in each of the activities including ABL, thinking about future careers, wellbeing, anti-bullying as well as creating a tutor group time capsule that will be sealed and locked away until June 2026!
