THANKSGIVING

LOWER SCHOOL ASSEMBLY

WEDNESDAY 4TH OCTOBER

As a celebration of the time of year when farmers are harvesting their crops, and to think of charitable giving, all year 7 & 8 pupils took part in a ‘Thanksgiving Assembly’ on Wednesday 4th October.

Christina Morgan, manager of North Enfield Foodbank, was the guest speaker and gave an insightful presentation to the boys on the work of North Enfield Foodbank in providing food parcels to those families and individuals in Enfield who are struggling to keep themselves nourished due to poverty.

In response to this, our boys then presented their own food gifts that they had brought from home.  In total our boys presented 160.5kg of food to be distributed to those people in Enfield who are less fortunate than themselves.  Christina was overjoyed with the generosity of our boys and Mr Cook, Head of Lower School, proudly thanked them for their gifts.

We look forward to further charitable giving throughout the year.  Well done boys!

school.The Governing Body has three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

CAKE SALE

I plan to have a cake sale on Tuesday, 17th October in the upper school staff room, as a fundraising event for my grandson, Andy, who needs an operation to enable him to walk unaided (email sent to you all back in September).
If anyone wants to show off their baking skills and bring some cakes in too, I wouldn’t say no!
Each portion will cost £2, so please come along and enjoy some cake whilst making a difference to a 6 year old’s life!

Many thanks and please don’t forget.

Kind regards
