Dear Parents and Care Givers Funky Friday Performance: ‘Garbage’ NB - NEW DATE! – Thursday 17th May 6.30- 8pm For the past term the Year 7 Funky Friday pupils have been engaged in an Environmental Project, and all of their work culminates in an evening to which parents are invited. There will be a series of presentations of all the students’ work, followed by a Fashion Show in the Dovehouse Theatre where the majority of the costumes on the catwalk will have been made from recycled materials! We will have about 80 students modelling their clothes so tickets, priced £2, will be in demand and are available from the Box Office.

The birds of tree A say to the birds of tree B that if one of you comes to our tree, then our population will be double yours. Then the birds of tree B tell the birds of tree A that if one of you comes here, then our population will be equal to that of yours. How many birds are in each tree?
