Many thanks for the many donations that we have received for our charity toy swap. This event was was organised by the school council to raise money for the ‘Save the Children’ charity.
The toy shop will be visited by the children over the course of tomorrow. Each toy can be bought for £1 and all proceeds will go straight to the Save The Children charity.
We welcome further toy donations tomorrow morning!
We have had the pleasure of welcoming the Life Education team this week. The children responded brilliantly to these sessions, engaging in the activities provided and discussing key themes thoughtfully. Year 3 ‘met the brain’, Year 4’s theme was ‘It’s Great To Be Me’, Year 5’s sessions centred around friendship and Year 6’s topic was ‘Decisions’.
Our remembrance garden was officially opened this week. This garden is not only to remember the fallen from conflicts but also to provide a quiet area for reflection and respect for those who have experienced personal losses.
Some of our Year 6s are doing a fantastic job at lunch time selling poppies and other items for the British Legion. There are still items of stationary, some bands and poppies for sale should children wish to purchase this week.
This year, the centenary of the end of World War I, we will be selling a range of items to support The Poppy Appeal. Pupils will be able to buy one item in their classes, as well as a poppy, should they wish to.
Today’s Mufti and biscuit sale raised £773.39, all of which will be donated to the YMCA to support the homeless in the Bournemouth area. Many thanks to the whole community for supporting this cause but especially to Mrs Powell for all of her baking, as well as to Miss Sheard and the school council for their organisation.
