Thank You to the PTA for all their Fundraising and to the Parents for their Support

11th Jan 2019

Mrs Quinn and all the staff would like to thank the parents for supporting the school. With the money raised at the discos, the marathon, and the Christmas Fair we have been able to purchase resources which will benefit all the pupils in the school.

The main focus has been the development of the outdoor learning area. The outdoor play area has been extended almost doubling its size. The area has been tarmacked providing an area where the smaller children can cycle and older children can play football etc. We are currently building a mud kitchen. Victor and John are working hard painting and shelving the area. We know the children will enjoy making mud pies etc. We have purchased new sand and water trays and a variety of resources for these trays such as diggers, tractors, dinosaurs, toy animals etc. These will be alternated through out the year depending on the topics being taught in class. We bought two large sheds and some metal sheds which can be seen around the school for storage. We also purchased bicycles and helmets and a large amount of bricks wooden, white plastic, coloured bricks etc. for building.

Other funds were used to purchase new English and maths text books which will benefit all pupils and to pay for our wonderful art teacher, Mrs Harrigan. 

This is not an exhaustive list but a sample of what we have used the funds for. We hope that you all feel the money has been well invested.

We thank you once again for your support. We are a very lucky school to have such support. Have a look at the photos of Year 5 Kennedy with some of the new resources. They are having a lot of fun.
