The children at Orchard have been enjoying the beautiful weather on the playground. Here is a sneaky peek of some of the resources bought with our £5000 Tesco bid …
We are encouraging parents and carers to respond to the Bristol City Council’s consultation on proposals to change local services. The proposals include closing both Horfield and Lockleaze libraries and cutting our school crossing patrol on Filton Avenue so we feel it is important that our school community takes this opportunity to express their views.
The survey is open now for 12 weeks, closing on Tuesday 5 September 2017. Please respond now to make sure that your opinions are heard.
On Friday 16th June we will be supporting Save the Children Fund’s Den Day.
Our pupils will be joining children from around the UK to unleash their imaginations and transform their classrooms and playgrounds into amazing dens. To raise funds for Den Day, we are asking them to bring in a donation of £1 on the day.
The money they raise will help Save the Children give children around the world a safe place to sleep at night.
We are delighted that Orchard Campus has been chosen to receive a £5000 grant from *Tesco ‘Bags of Help’. We will be spending the grant on play equipment for the playground. Many thanks to all our families and friends who supported us by collecting tokens.
*Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Customers get to vote for their favourite project every time that shop to determine the grant size each community project receives. www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp
