Assisting with the Christmas lights.
Amazon Vouchers for all the children in the district at Christmas.
We have managed to set up a Breakfast club in the school canteen which runs most
mornings from 9 – 9.15am (volunteer dependant). We have bought a fridge freezer andvarious other kitchen items to be able to set this up properly. The children are offered cereal,toasted bagels, and fruit juice. This has proved very popular with the children, and hashelped boost the children’s learning throughout the day.
The pupil council are currently budgeting and planning for the discretionary funds. Theyhave voted to upgrade the outdoor equipment which may include recycling and new picnic benches, a sand pit and to upgrade the pond area. We would also like to rewild the area between the nursery garden and the forest area, and put some stepping stones in place.”
