  1. Singing to the Over 75’s Club

    On the 19th of November we took the school to the Salvation Army Hall in Dunstable to sing for the Over 75’s Club. The children entertained them with a medley of songs from our Christmas play and gave them a sneak preview of the songs that we will be singing at The Grove Theatre at the end of the month.

    This is always a lovely morning for the children and after the singing they really enjoy sitting and having a chat with the ladies and gentlemen from the club, where the topics of conversation ranged from knitting and schoolwork to music and fashion.

    Before we left we were presented with a beautiful hand knitted Nativity scene which has pride of place in the School hall.

  2. Children in Need

    Cake sale (Children in Need)

    We were very excited to show our support for Children In Need this year by dressing up as our favourite super heroes. From Spider-Man to Iron Man, Cat Girl to Wonder Woman we saw a wonderful array of costumes, with a particularly entertaining Batman onesie worn by Mr. Compton!

    We also held our traditional competitive cake sale which, this year, was won by Meredith House but by a very slim margin of only £10!

    Overall we raised just over £270, thank you for all your support.

  3. Sponsored fitness with Alastair Patrick-Heselton

    On the 20th of October all the children (and quite a few of the staff!) participated in the sponsored fitness circuit with Alastair Patrick-Heselton, the Paralympic footballer.

    The circuit consisted of four exercises all of which the children managed to complete in the time given. It was an energetic but enjoyable half hour and having an Olympic athlete to encourage them helped spur everyone on to the end.

    After the fitness session we were all treated to an inspirational talk from Alastair. The children were absolutely captivated by his story and had many questions to ask about his life before and after becoming a Paralympic athlete.

    It was a truly inspiring event and we will all be watching out next year, hoping to see Alastair competing in the Olympic Games in Rio.

    The total raised from the sponsored fitness circuit was an amazing £1,714 out of which the school will benefit from some new sports equipment.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their support in what was a fantastic and very worthwhile event.
