Hello everyone and welcome to the Bright Sparks page! 

This is where to come if you have any special interests.  Whether you have a talent for tennis, are devoted to dance or crave crafts, we will try to include information on these pages so that you can find out more about your particular passion .

I will update the page throughout the year with exciting and enriching websites as well as kids' competitions for you to enter.  Feel free to contact me with suggestions and ideas.
