Charity for others

We had a very busy start to the new year at school and held a number of events for charities, both local and we had a great Harvest festival in October at the Church.

Thank you to all of the children who brought in food for the Swindon Food Bank.

We have also had a Jeans for Genes day this term and collected £106 for research into genetic disorders.

The School Council have also decided to support an appeal for Christmas shoeboxes full of presents for families in Romania. We are collecting items until 20th Oct and they will be distributed in Dec to the Romanian families by a charitable organisation.

We have recently had planning permission granted for an extension to the front of the school to include a kitchen and dining area. Work will hopefully be starting in November and it will be a 6 month project.
