June 24, 2011: Adding a staff gallery
We've been asked the same question about our website time and time again; "Where are the staff photographs?" Good question! To be honest, we've never felt comfortable about individual photographs of staff being available, but after a lot of consideration we decided to call in a professional photography company (see them on the left) to create some special images to use on the website. So, without further delay, we present images of the staff at Porchester Junior School. You can view the staff gallery through the 'Visitors' tab at the top of every screen throughout the website.

June 22, 2011: Girl Power!
Our girls football team played in the cup semi-final yesterday against Arno Vale. For some of our girls they had never played in a team until this year. The girls played particularly well against an experienced girls team and it was 0-0 after full time. Unfortunately, in extra time, the ball broke free to their star player with just 30 seconds to go before a penalty shoot out. She scored a brilliant goal shooting low into the bottom corner. Congratulations must go to our girls though who played so well all season only letting that 1 goal in! They did Porchester proud with their skill and team spirit. Well done girls!
