We have a rising star currently studying in our school and we are very proud of Abbi Percival.
Abbi participated in two big Rhythmic Gymnastics competitions at the end of October and the beginning of this month at Bath and Northampton.
These competitions are very big (for the whole of South of UK) and the competition is strong. C.170 gymnasts competed at Bath alone.
Here are some of the highlights from the competitions:
Abbi was 5th in the Under 12 years old Novice level in Bath for her Hoop routine performance.
She also performed really well at the Northampton completion as part of a trio.
Abbi appeared in the Welwyn and Hatfield Times newspaper, as well as on their website.
Mrs Shirley and many others attended the Welwyn Hatfield Times Awards at Oaklands College Campus. We were crowned finalists in School of the Year 2015 and Anatea in Year 6 crowned a finalist for Sports Achiever of The Year for her excellence in acrobatic gymnastics.
However, we won the category for Innovation. Our award winning Year 6 celebrated winning an award for their Jibber Jabber projects. Well done!
Homerswood children in Reception to Year 6 ran their own marathon to support Carers UK

An amazing £724.05 was raised through the Mini Marathon sponsorship. This will be added to the £90 that we raised through the silver collection at the Year 4 production. What an amazing amount! Many thanks to everyone that has supported this event.
A big thank you to Libby in Year 4 who spent her weekend working with KitAid packing kits for children and adults to be sent to over 49 countries. The bags contain recycled old football kits and distributes them to people in underprivileged children and adults in some to the world's poorest communities. What great community spirit!
