Hello everyone! I hope term 2 is treating you all well so far! Does anyone else feel as though Christmas break was a lifetime away? Time flies when you have a bunch of deadlines due! It’s a long one for you this week, there are lots going on up in the mountains!
This week’s quiz has been taken out of our hands and put into the trusty ones of our Furness Inter-College Charity Challenge Team. They will be in charge of the quiz this week, but don’t worry, we are pushing our Harry Potter theme quiz to week 14. All proceeds this week will be going to the charity ‘LDHAS’ (Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service) which was chosen by you at the end of last term! It’s a nice bit of fun for your flat and this week it’s for a good cause and so it will be lovely to see lts of your lovely faces on Wednesday in Trev at 7.30pm.
