On Thursday the 26th May 10 children from both Year 3 and 4 took part in a Tri-Golf competition at Canterbury High, which we are very pleased to announce they WON!
The children were in competition against 6 other schools and will now represent St. Stephen's Junior in the Kent School Games Final . We are extremely proud of you children!
Children from St. Stephen's Junior visited the Church field in Hales Drive in support of a very worthy cause. Five childrens play areas around the district, including St. Stephen's Church field, are undergoing a trial scheme to encourage mums and dads not to smoke in and around any of the play areas.

Creative signs designed by the primary schools have been mounted around the play areas to help raise awareness.
