  • Competition Winners!

    Published 18/05/17

    Congratulations to the eight children who were announced today as the winners of our Stevenage Football Club Supporters Association badge design competition. Lots of children through the school took part in the competition set by our local football club. They had to design a new membership badge for the SFCSA. A winner was chosen from each class by staff at the football club. The winners were announced in a special whole-school assembly this morning and were presented with a winners medal and their design by Lewis who leads on school partnership for SFC. All pupils at Roebuck are automatically members of SFCSA and this gives our families good discounts on many SFC products and in local restaurants and retailers. It gives each child a membership badge and card, as well as discounted rates to buy match tickets at The Lamex. It also gives one child each half term the chance to be the SFC matchday mascot where they get to lead the players out on to the pitch at the start of a EFL game. Please visit the community section of our website to find out more.

  • Terrific Tournament

    Published 18/05/17

    A huge well done to our greta netball team who played in the Stevenage Schools' tournament on Tuesday this week. The A team played in a round robin event playing against the top six other school teams from across the town. This included many larger schools. Our girls won the first two games, scoring fourteen goals and only conceding two. We then lost narrowly 4-3 to Peartree School and were beaten by Knebworth and St Vincent de Paul. In the final game, our girls drew 6-6 with St Margaret of Clitherow School who this year won the Stevenage league. This was a great performance and a great way to finish the season. It was a wonderful tournament and we are very proud of all eight girls (pictured above) who have been terrific competing at this level all season.

Performances were in both the afternoon and evening and one family left saying, 'Wow! I am blown away. What talented children. What a great performance!'

  • Book fair and World Book Day bring reading alive at Roebuck!

    Published 09/03/17

    Last Thursday, children and staff celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters as part of our themed week based around a class book. We even had a bunch of 'Wallies' as staff dressed up as the favourite character from the picture book 'Where's Wally?' The week ended with excitement as our book fair arrived and all of the classes enjoyed time browsing through the books and creating their wish lists.

    During Parents' evenings this week, the book fair has been open and we have been overwhelmed by the support from children and parents. Roebuck school has raised a whopping £1353.76 which means Scholastic will give the school £752.26 back to spend on books. Over the next few days, children and teachers will be busy writing down their wishlists and Mrs Thomas is getting very excited about spending all of the money on lots of lovely new books!

    A huge thank you to everyone who supported our book fair - happy reading!
