On Monday 13th February, enthusiastic members of the Green Team met at the Co-op as part of our work on Global Citizenship and Fairtrade.
We were greeted by Co-op staff members who helped us find many Fairtrade items in store including delicious fresh fruit, that we later converted into healthy smoothies back at school! Many thanks to the Co-op for supporting this activity and to Mrs Cross for accompanying us on this visit and letting us use her classroom for some messy smoothie making!
We also obtained some ingredients in preparation for our Fairtrade bake sales that we have held during Fairtrade Fortnight (27th February-12th March). All money raised from these sales will go to Oxfam, a global charity, who are working to end the injustice of poverty as well as helping people rebuild their lives at times of crisis such as the recent devastation caused by the Turkey-Syria earthquake.
Thank you to everybody who supported our bake sale last week. We hope that you will enjoy some more delicious items, baked using Fairtrade ingredients, this week. Your support of our bake sales will help Oxfam teams get food, clean water and emergency shelter to affected communities following the earthquake.
A BIG thank you to The Living Forest, Magda and Mick Lott, for providing us with some much needed woodchip for our paths. We would welcome any parent helpers to spread it! shovels can be provided and help much appreciated.
There has been a slight improvement on overall school attendance to date this year at 92.9% However the expectation from our local authority is 95% and so we are looking for support in reaching this all-important goal. Put simply, your child has a greater chance of achieving their personal goals if they are in school. Of course we also understand that coughs and colds are common place particularly with the spell of poor weather we are experiencing. We are more than happy to support children through minor ailments by giving medicine and rest if needed.
Thank you for your support in this respect.
Red Nose Day Friday 17th March.
Miss Hopkins will be meeting with the School Council on Monday to discuss what the children would like to do. Don't worry! it will not be too onerous; probably dress in spots or red.
