On Monday 14th October the year 6 pupils traveled to White Hall out door center to join Biggin, Parwich and Monyash pupils for a three day residential visit. They experienced stream scrambling, canoeing, night walks, zip wires, mountain biking, rope courses and climbing walls. The pupils had a wonderful but tiring time working collaboratively with others to develop communication, language and problem solving skills, raise self-esteem and self-worth.
On Wednesday 9th October the NSPCC visited school to talk to the KS1 & KS2 children regarding the ‘Speak Out. Stay Safe programme. This involved a collective worship and workshop for the older children.

Following completion of our first term of Active Across Ages and the work undertaken between our Active Buddies and Silver Sports, the Youth Sports Trust have compiled an article for their newsletter.
Our pupils have been busy gathering food and refreshments as part of their harvest festival celebrations to pass on to Ashbourne Food Bank. The school children visited the food bank last month to learn more about the work that is carried out there and how important it is to local people.
Then following a special Harvest Service today in St Giles Church the hampers of food will be delivered to the food bank. In previous years the donations for Harvest have been handed out to elderly residents of the village but this year it was decided the charity would be a worthy recipient of the hampers.
Following a visit to the food bank the secretary of the PCC quoted ‘A small school teaching everyone that we can all love our neighbour in a big way!’
