Text just in from Mr Cotton,

‘Glorious sunny day today. Kids all fine, although exhausted. It’s been a great trip and the kids have been brilliant. A credit to the school and their parents! . See you at 3pm’

Disco Fever!

Last night the children (and Miss Topping) got their best gear on ready to dance the night away at the legendary Colomendy disco. The children were exhausted after a long day of exciting activities but still managed to ‘throw some shapes’ on the dance floor!

Colomendy update!

The sun was still shining as the children took on canoeing and kayaking activities! I’m afraid there are some wet clothes coming back to Everton! Everyone safe, happy and having a great time!


Latest from Mr Cotton

Latest news from Mr Cotton is that the children are currently taking part in Nightline, Team Tech and Bouldering. They were full of energy after cereal and a full English breakfast and the weather is just perfect!

Sunny and Bright!

It’s sunny and bright in Colomendy this morning and the children are looking forward to a fun filled day of challenging activities. Last night the children had roast dinner for tea, they were up and out early this morning and looking forward to a cooked breakfast.

Text from Mr Cotton

‘Children are all in bed but not asleep! Very excited! All safe and sound and had a good day. Washing machines needed for Friday night though!’ from Mr Cotton

Cross Country – 22nd September 2015 at Newsham Park

The second cross country event in the calendar was held at Newsham Park this evening, with OLI fielding a boys and girls team once again.

Well done to first timers James and Harriet, who raced very well considering they are 1 year younger than most of the competition. The third event will be held at Stanley Park next week.

Lucas O’Brien: 60th

Sean Harris: 69th

James Wamulo: 70th

Cross Country – Wavertree 17th September 2015

The Cross Country season kicked off at Wavertree this week, with OLI taking part after a a term’s worth of training sessions in the summer. Both boys and girls were represented by Year 6 pupils, in the intermediate schools’ races. Over half of the schools in Liverpool were in attendance, meaning over 80 pupils took to the field in each race, with some exceptionally talented runners from around the city.

All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed their first competitive cross country race and all are determined to beat their placings from this race next week at Newsham Park.

Our first runners home were Eryk (27th) and Holly (51st).
