Hello and welcome to another issue of Totally Tockington, the paper written BY students FOR students! This week is very sad because it is the last week of Tockington for the Year 8s and it’s Ms Case’s last paper! However, the theme is not sad endings but happy ones, as both set off on new adventures, so let’s have a look at what articles we have coming up… Why not take a look at Harry H’s article on how you can keep bees happy, then learn all about getting a puppy with Elizabeth! Find out what the Year 8’s happiest memories of Tockington are in Jonathan’s interview! All this and more in another great issue of Totally Tockington!

After a fantastic season in Tockington Manor swimming culminating in achieving the 2nd fastest 50m freestyle in the country, Rachel Shutt (12) from Tockington Manor School has achieved first in the county in no less than 5 events! 800m, 400m, 200m, 100m and 50m Freestyle completed the set!
Mrs Hinchliffe, swimming coach at Tockington Manor said, “Rachel’s achievements are a first for the school as she holds the fastest times in all strokes, her dedication is unrivalled.”
This dedication to training and commitment to excel is clear, Rachel trains every day, before school from 5 to 6 in the morning and in the evenings too.
