We did it – our Crowdfunding campaign raised over £12,000!
We recently ran a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to install a new trim trail with new physically challenging fitness equipment and a traverse climbing wall. We needed to raise £5000 for Dorset County Council to match it to make £10,000. We exceeded our target and the total raised (including the money from DCC) reached over £12,000!
Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign!
Special visitors to our school
We were delighted to be visited recently by Debbie and her guide dog Mary. Debbie explained to all the children what it is like to live with a physical disability and how invaluable her guide dog Mary is. The children tried to butter bread and pour water from a jug into their cups whilst blindfolded and found these tasks extremely difficult! They asked Debbie lots of questions and were very excited to be able to stroke Mary when she was off duty – Mrs Greenham also made time for a cuddle with Mary too!
Thank you to Leah from Dorset Blind Association for organising this and for bringing Debbie and Mary to visit us.
We are delighted to announce that we have won the Gold School Games award for 2017/2018. The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust. The scheme rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
Some of the reasons we won the Gold award include: leading the daily mile initiative, delivering a diverse menu of sports, competing in both intra and inter school sporting competitions, inviting a local lady who was running in the London Marathon to inspire and take part in sport with the children, running an after school fitness club for the whole community and running tennis coaching for the entire school culminating in our own mini Wimbledon event.
