As part of our partnership with Bassa Town Infant School in Waterloo, Sierra Leone, we are making a concerted effort to raise funds to help make a difference to end Ebola in West Africa. Every day, the news is filled with stories of the spread of Ebola across the regions worst affected. This is exactly where our partner school and community lies. These are our friends, families and fellow teachers who are dying each day. We can make a difference by donating to Waterloo Partnership to help fund vital equipment like buckets, gloves, chlorine and basics like water and rice. Please view the appeal video that some of our pupils have made along with fellow pupils from our partner schools across Sefton and Liverpool.
What are we going to do?
Collecting donations at each of the harvest assemblies this week; holding a mufti day on Friday 24th October, where the children can wear an item of white, blue or green to match the national flag of Sierra Leone; selling wristbands; making and selling cakes; organiing a sponsored fun run plus many other ideas too! We will be collecting all money and sending it to the Waterloo Partnership, who will ensure that every penny goes to where it is needed most.
International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Please support the children for International Walk to School Day:
Wednesday 8th October.
From Monday 6th until Thursday 9th October, we will be holding our regular Open Evenings in school. This is a great opportunity for you to find out how your child (or children!) has settled into their new class and meet their teacher. Please note that there will be no parents meetings held on WEDNESDAY 8th OCTOBER due to staff training taking place.
If you are unable to make your time or day, please contact school to rearrange a new time. As always, Mr Dinsdale will be available in the main office for anyone who would like to speak to him, as well as Mrs Jasper (Deputy Headteacher) and Mrs Ormrod (SENCO). We look forward to seeing you!
