Target achieved!

The new play/games area is ready and being used. The older children had portable tennis nets up across the length of the pitch and children were working in pairs, practising forehand shots. The first time in the school's history that pupils have been able to do this. So there is a new target for fundraising.

Environmental Disasters

Everyone must have seen the video clips of the recent, terrible events in Japan. The destruction has made so many people homeless and the threat of radiation from their power stations has forced many others to vacate their homes and move to safer areas.
The son of a friend of mine works for Shelterbox, an international rescue charity based in Cornwall. They had a team in Japan 24 hours after the earthquake. What a brilliant idea. Their work is inspirational.
