St Mary's 'Race for Life' event in aid of Cancer Research is back! It is going to take place after school on Wednesday 20th May on the school field and is open to both female students and staff to participate in. This was a huge success last year raising just short of £1000 and we are hoping for the same response this year. Students can either walk, jog or run the 5km and can dress up in pink for the event. Parents can come to support them on the day of the event.

As you may have seen, the new High Ropes Course is almost complete in Stanley Park and we are keen to seek the thoughts and opinions of those aged 14-30 to gain a picture of what people would like to see included in the Outdoor Activities Programme for Blackpool.
We would be grateful if you could ask a few of your students to complete a short survey so we can look to offer a programme that will cater for as many interests as possible. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/bpooloutdooractivities

Congratulations to St Mary's Year 7 & 8 swimmers, who won the Blackpool Schools' Swimming competition at Palatine Leisure Centre last week. All pupils were superb, especially the Year 8 girls' team who won the majority of their races. Special congratulations to Jess Duffy who is in Year 7 but actually swam for the Year 8 girls' team. She was outstanding!
