School News – June 2024

School News

In this issue of the news you will find a list of items that we need help with. As I am sure you are all aware, school funding across the country is extremely limited and you might be able to support us.

  • Each year, our school struggles with the heat as we have little to no shade on our grounds. Instead of buying gazebos that ultimately break and end up in landfill, we will be building a wooden gazebo structure that will hopefully last for ten years or more. The School PTA are busy fundraising to help fund this project. Would you like to make a donation towards this?
  • We are looking to appoint a School Governor who will help represent and champion the needs and strategic intent of our school.
  • We have a reflection garden on our school grounds and some other garden areas that need improving and maintaining. Are you a keen gardener that would like to volunteer some time, particularly in the warmer months?
  • We are very lucky to have a team of reading volunteers, but we always need more. Would you like to commit some time each week to listen to children read
  • Does your company offer community days? We have a variety of jobs that need volunteers to run, e.g. cleaning and painting of the school fence and picnic benches, sanding and treating the school hall floor, engraving our new wooden gazebo with a quote from Psalm 139, create pathways in our forest school area, painting classrooms and general gardening/clearing.
  • Can you make some planting containers from reclaimed wood? We don’t have many flowers but plenty of space to attract bees!
  • Do you have a printing company that could offer a discount on printing: postcards, t-shirts, tote bags, hoodies?
  • Could your local business offer anything as a prize at our fete or an item to auction? We currently have some very generous offers: a night’s stay in a hotel with dinner, dinner at The Golden Cross and artwork by Imogen Harvey-Lewis.

 

School Summer Fete: Saturday 15th July from 12 until 3pm.
We all hope to see you at our summer fete soon! If you would like to support us in any way, please get in touch with the school office admin@siddington.gloucs.sch.uk.
