Head of School Update - Friday 30th April 2021

Welcome to this week's Weekly Update!


This morning, our School Ambassadors were invited to visit the Community Garden at the Willingdon Trees Community Centre. The children helped with the planting of some of the 200 sapling trees as part of a Woodland Trust project for local communities. The children have planted a tree each and given them a name. The trees can be seen at the Community Centre.
