Salvation Army Visit

‘The Salvation Army’

This week, six Year Six children had the opportunity to go down to ‘The Salvation Army’ in ‘Market Street’. The man from the ‘Salvation Army’ showed us around and the Year Sixes got to label the expiry dates on the food. Also, they showed us where they store all of your food donations on the shelves and the Year Sixes got to pick up one tin of food and place it on the shelves in the right place.

Remember if you gave a donation you are a superhero!

School Council

On Tuesday 11th October, all children year 1 and up went into the ‘Community Room’ (‘Polling Station’) to place a vote for their chosen candidate. They each had to choose a boy and a girl from each class that represented all the Homelands Values. Every candidate was very excited and were very eager to be a school councillor and to represent the school as well as their class as best as they can.
