Basketball player assembly

We had the pleasure of welcoming James Thomson, a basketball player from Teesside Lions, into our school for an active assembly. James told us all about basketball, how he started to play at a young age and he also revealed that he is an ex pupil of St Cuthbert’s! Some of our children took part in some basketball skills with James and we all took part in a Teesside Lions chant and pose.
