19/10/2023   Charitable work 2023-24

The school council have decided on the three charities we will be supporting this year. This term we will be take part in the Christmas Shoebox Appeal. During November, we will be packing a shoebox gift to help bring joy to someone this Christmas. In the Spring Term, we will be raising money for Down Syndrome UK- a charity very close to our hearts. In the summer term, the school council will be making good their promise to the Parish Council to raise money to contribute towards the reinstallation of the zipwire in our village park. As is always the case, we are incredibly proud of the thoughtful children at our school. Their research, speeches and decision making regarding these charities demonstrate their compassion and generosity of spirit at such a young age.

Thank you to all those who supported the school council to enable them to raise such a staggering amount for the charity.
