Generosity of Spirit

There is no doubt that we live in uncertain times but it is re-assuring to know that generosity of spirit continues at our school.

During the recent storms we lost a number of trees in the school grounds. In addition there were some others that were at risk of falling which we had to be taken down for the safety. As well as being of real aesthetic appeal and environmental benefit some of the trees which have been removed provided shade on the playground used by our younger children. One of our splendid Governors dug up some young saplings from her own garden and then re-planted them to replace those lost. Hopefully, in not too many years the children will once again be able to enjoy looking at the new trees as well as using them for protection from the summer sun.

As part of our World Book Day work this year, the children took part in the Read for Good Charity appeal (Readathon), raising money to buy books for children who are in hospital. Your generosity never ceases to amaze me and I know that many young people will be able once again to enjoy a greater range of books during their stay in local hospitals.

We all know that doing the small things right makes such a difference. Last week I was talking with some year 5 children about being public spirited. At the end of our conversation they identified something that needed to be done, before proceeding to undertake it, talking about the benefit of being public spirited. Inspiring Young Minds.
