The KS2 school councillors have had a very exciting morning as they visited Wood Street Mission in Manchester. We were keen to see where all of the food that we donate every year for harvest goes and how it is distributed out to families across Manchester.
We were given a tour of the centre by Des Lynch who visits our school every year as part of our harvest assembly. He introduced us to the volunteers who help on a daily basis sorting out clothes, books and food for people in need of support.
We had a fantastic time. Thanks also to Mr McDowell for driving us there on the minibus.
Here are a few photos of our visit.
At a recent Governors meeting, holidays for the next academic year were discussed. Before these are finalised we want to hear from parents and so have created a short form for parents to answer – Thank you in advance!
Sadly, Philip Hughes died on November 27th 2014 by an extremely fast cricket ball which hit him on the top of the back of his neck. He was only 25 and he played for Australia in cricket. An Australian doctor said that he passed away in hospital, never regaining consciousness. So he didn’t even know about anything that happened to him. He also played for Hampshire, Middlesex and Worcestershire. Philip Hughes collapsed face first on the ground after being hit by a bouncer by 22 year old Sean Abbot. There is a campaign which has gone viral around the world called ‘put out your bats’ and it is in memory of Philip Hughes. Many people are putting images of a cricket bat propped up against a wall or a post with a cricket hat on the handle on social media, in memory of him.
