Every year the school is involved with Go Givers and their Make a Difference challenge. In 2016, year 4 looked into the issue of our hard working grandparents and how we could make a difference to them. After lots of research they discovered that grandparents are now more active and often work as well as continue their role in supporting their families. They ended up hosting an afternoon tea, complete with scones, cakes and a game of bingo to say thank you for everything our grandparents do for us.
This year our Go Givers Make a Difference challenge has been chosen by the children and they want to focus on Smoking and the effects it has on us and the environment.
Keep checking back on here for updates on our project.
Thank you to everyone who returned our questionnaire regarding smoking. After reviewing those that were returned, most people in our village don’t smoke. After discussion with the children and the staff involved we have decided to change the focus of our Make a Difference Challenge. Therefore, we have changed our focus to be Our Village.
Year 3 will be looking at how we can raise funds to buy a defibrillator, which we are hoping will be stored at the Robin Todd Centre. We have already been in touch with some local businesses who have said they will support us. There is a collection box within school and we are hoping to raise some money at our summer fair.
Year 4, 5 and 6 will be focusing on fly tipping, litter and our local church as part of the project.
Thank you to the businesses in South Hetton who have donated to our Defibrillator project. We also had a stall at the summer fair and are raffling off a wonderful hamper on Thursday 20th July. At the moment our total stands at £436.
