All through the term the children collect coloured tokens for good work. At the end of the school year they are counted up. Here are this year's totals:
Yellow Team 1350 tokens
Red Team 1358 tokens
Green team 1402 tokens
and this year's winners - the Blue team with 1661 tokens which means that they have completed the double this year as they also won the trophy on Sports Day.
Rocks Park school received a new sports day trophy after the original 43 year old trophy is retired due to damage.

Rocks Park Primary School Trek Around The World
Uckfield is on the 50th line of latitude and back in January, we decided to walk virtually along that line in an easterly direction around the world. It’s only taken us 14 weeks – and we have walked, scooted, cycled, skipped and hopped a grand total of 26,170kms!
In the past few weeks we have 'visited' Kiev, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, Russia, islands in the north Pacific Ocean, Canada, Newfoundland and we have now crossed the Atlantic Ocean to return home. Wow, I’m tired and ready for a rest. You can read the whole story here and watch the video for some amazing photos of your treks.
Well done everyone and thank you for taking part in our great adventure.
