Year 6: Evie and Lucas
Year 5: Millie and Kai B.
Year 4: Molly and Dinah
Year 3: Evie and Taylor
Year 2: Zara and Kara
Year 1: Amelia and Freya W.
Our annual collection for GL11 foodbank is running until Wednesday 15th November. Please bring into school an item or two from the list below. We will then deliver the collection to GL11, learn about how the foodbank is organised there and explain it to the whole school in assembly. The local foodbank provides valuable support in our community.
Very busy year for school council that included foodbank collection and delivery for Harvest, hot chocolate and rocky road making and selling fundraisers, Christmas Jumper Sale, meeting with Leza from Caterlink, organising Fruit Friday with the support of Mrs Coombs and Eastington Farm Shop ... to end with buying cushions and blankets for the SNUG with the money raised through the year! :-)
The set up of No electricity Hour, an ice cream sale that raised £115 for HUSH to buy school shoes for local Ukrainian Refugees, a special trip to Slimbridge for a photoshoot to update their marketing material, contribution towards gardening area makeover, providing each class with a plant, organising an Easter Egg Raffle, getting involved in the new headteacher interviews and a foodbank collection and delivery are some of things we got up to this year. :-)
