Christmas Shoebox Appeal

November 14th, 2022

Our GIFT team led the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal following a visit from Mrs Williams.  They decided to ask each class to bring in certain items to donate towards the shoeboxes and then spent their lunchtime packing the boxes ready for collection.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items and filled shoeboxes, they certainly will make a difference to some children’s lives this Christmas.

Harvest Prayer Station

October 24th, 2022

The GIFT team have set up a new prayer station for harvest time.  Everyone is invited to draw a picture of their favourite fruit or vegetable in the basket whilst giving thanks for the harvest, for all our food and those that provide the food for us, whilst remembering those who go hungry so that they may know that they are not forgotten.

Dear God,

We thank you for the celebration of harvest.

Thank you for our food and the friends and family we have to share it with.

Thank you for the rain, the soil, the sun and the farmers and fisherman who provide food for us to eat.

Help us to remember to always say thank you and be grateful for all that we have.

Help us to be generous and share what we have with others, taking time to help and pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Amen

What an amazing day! It was so wonderful to be able to invite all our families to come and share the day with us again; thankfully after early morning showers the weather turned out beautifully and we all enjoyed a fabulous day watching the various races and sports, sharing picnics and enjoying a magnificent BBQ!

Well done to all the children who took part; they all showed great tenacity and sportsmanship throughout – we are all so proud of you!

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

June 10th, 2022

Queen Elizabeth Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

We celebrated the Queen’s platinum jubilee by making and designing our own crowns; red, white and blue pom-pom shakers, paper chains and bunting. We also wore red, white and blue clothing.  We joined together as a whole school with our families for a tea party which included a jubilee quiz, cakes and ice lollies! A great time was had by all.

Beach Clean & Litter Pick

June 10th, 2022

Following a break due to COVID restrictions our eco-committee has been back up and running since September 2021 and working behind the scenes on various new initatives as we work towards becoming a greener school.

The first of these initiatives to come to fruition was a  litter pick and beach clean in Brixham on a sunny saturday in April. !4 children and their grown ups joined us and we collected 5 black sacks worth of rubbish and enjoyed a celebratory drink and biscuit on the beach afterwards. A huge thank you to all who came to join us.

The following week during a lunch playtime the eco-committe completed a litter pick around our school grounds. #careforourcommonhome

GIFT Team

June 10th, 2022

Our school GIFT (growing in faith together) team have been hard at work since they applied and were appointed to their positions. We came together and discussed various ideas as to how we could grow the faith in our school and community, creating an action plan for the next term.  First on their list was to honour our mothers in some way as Mothering Sunday was approaching, they created flower posies and held a special celebration assembly, which was beautiful. Their second action was to create a prayer station outside the hall for all to access. The prayer station will be updated each month with a different theme, the children decided that this first month our prayers should go to the people of the Ukraine.
