Charity cheques presented at Assembly

At Assembly this morning we were delighted to present the proceeds of our retiring collection at the Christmas Carol Service to representatives from three charities which the school supports.

In total nearly £400 was raised at the event in December and the funds were split evenly between the three worthy causes.

We welcomed a representative from the Forefront Community Church in Chard to receive our first cheque, Forefront run the Lord’s Larder which provides emergency food supplies for people in need in the area. Our second cheque was collected by Father Jeff of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Chard, where the school regularly holds concerts and services. Our final cheque was presented to Richard Lucas, Deputy Head at Chard, who helps to run a charitable trust which raises funds for Nalwanza School in Uganda.

Our thanks to everyone for their generous donations to these causes.

Birds of Prey Workshop

Birds of Prey Workshop

Pre-Prep and The Lawns Nursery were treated to a visit from three owls on Monday. A tawny owl, barn owl and a European Eagle owl were introduced to the children by Sharon and Matt of ‘Sharandys Birds of Prey’. The children were able to look at the features of each owl in more detail, hold them, watch the barn owl in flight and even stroke Barney the large Eagle Owl who held his wings open on command! The leaders helped the children to dissect owl pellets and study the contents to identify the bones of creatures eaten by the owls and learn about their hunting habits. Thanks to ‘Sharandys Birds of Prey’ for their fascinating, educational workshop.
