Peer Mentors

Congratulations to Sam Inkster, Cariad Norris, Jessica Walker-Bower and Katie Gorton for successfully applying to become Peer Mentors.

They will have training after half term, but I know will be very supportive towards all members of the school community.

Well done and good luck in this very responsible role.

Harvest Reminders

We will be celebrating autumn with our child led Harvest Assemblies this Friday, 16th October.

The times for each assembly are:
9.00-9.30: Years 3 and 4    
9.50-10.20: Years 5 and 6   

We would like to invite you to join us at either or both of these assemblies.  FAB will provide refreshments.

As in past years, we will be making up food parcels to take to the Lunch Club at the Methodist Church. The remaining produce will be collected by Guildford Borough Council, who are always grateful for donations to support some of the more vulnerable members of our town.
We would be delighted if you are able to donate some items, particularly if pupils could bring these in on Thursday 15th or Friday 16th October to be displayed at the assemblies.
Suggested items are:
· Tins (suitable for 1-2 servings)
· Sugar, tea, coffee
· Treats like sweets, biscuits and cakes

If you have any shoe boxes lying around, please could we have them for food parcels after our harvest celebration.  There is no need for them to be decorated.  If you know of anyone who would appreciate receiving one, please do let us know. 

As well as bringing in tins of food for local people for Harvest, we will be having a collection at the end of the assemblies and funds raised will be sent to a charity called 'Toilet Twinning', for poor communities to have clean water, basic toilets and to learn about  hygiene.  More info is available at info@toilettwinning.org
