We warmly invite all parents, grandparents and members of the community

Fundraising Success and ongoing...

NEW BOOKS


We would really like to be able to offer the children a wider range of books, tailored to their interests and written by some brilliant authors.  The selection that we currently have in school is not as wide as we would like it to be and we would like to able to offer the children a much more varied and modern range to choose from.

 

With this in mind, we have set up an Amazon Wish List and would like to ask parents, families and the wider community if they would purchase a book from the list, which would then be sent to school for our school library.

 

The link to the book list is: https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/WW5FD90LNZI5?ref_=wl_share

 

Please spread the word and share the wish list so that we can offer our children a library full of books that will inspire them and spark their imaginations.

A huge thank you again to all of you, your family and friends, who kindly bought books for the school library so far!

    Photos for Funds

     

    We have been working with Lymington Based Photographer Helen Renouf - Renouf Design - who has been and will continue to take photographs of the children at school and in various learning enviroments. These photos may be used on our web site and in our publications if you have given permission to do so.

     

    The most recent albums from the photoshoots are available on her web site. They are securely passworded until the school office has had time to view the images and make sure that all children whose faces are shown have permission to be there. If there is any photo you wish removed please contact Helen or the school office directly (with the album & photo details)

     

    All images are available to purchase as digital downloads, direct through the web site galleries. Visit: www.renoufdesign.co.uk

    Computers for schools

     

    We collected working computers, ipads and tablets here at school for the children to extend their IT experiences, during the Covid pandemic - we were aware that not every family in our school community have access to these at home, and we are aimied to build a bank of resources through fundraising and donations to enable all children to have access where they are struggling.

     

     

    Thank you

     

     

    Matt and Ellie from Lymington Computer Repairs,  kindly offered to help get any donated computers up and working for the children to use, within the first week of our appeal they were able to repurpose 24 laptops for us to utilise for families in need.
