Compassion

We are so proud of our pupil who cut her hair in support of the Little Princess Trust. This charity supports children who have lost their hair due to illness. Not only has she raised £250, but her hair will now be made into wigs for other children.

Gardening

Members of the gardening club went to the local cemetery to support with the improvement of one of the gardens of remembrance this lunchtime. Well done to the children for their hard work and thank you to Mrs Moore for organising the opportunity with Bournemouth council. The children were superb throughout and represented our academy incredibly well.

Thought of the week

This week’s thought is all about compassion, one of the character traits that we look for within our Character Award Program. In assembly today we learned how one shopkeeper from India had set up a school under a bridge, using his own money to buy materials for learning. Amazing compassion for those in need. We also realised that we cannot be compassionate without paying attention to others, trying to understand their situations, thoughts and feelings.
