Kirkby & Gt. Broughton School Our children and their families have shown great generosity recently with events in support of a range of charities. We joined with other local schools and took part in the 'Love in a Box' Children in Distress Shoebox Appeal. We w overwhelmed with the number of boxes received which are now on their way t Romania where they will make a real difference to children's lives. We also to part in 'Children in Need' on 18th November when the children came to school dressed up in something with spots. The School Council and House Captains organised a very successful 'Bake and Buy1 sale which took place at playtime and after school. Our fantastic PTA organised a Firework Extravaganza on 5th November. It w< the first time such an event had been held at the school and a lot of planning and hard work went into making the event so successful. It was a very enjoyable night for all and we were even lucky with the weather! The next event is the Holly Fayre which will be held in the school hall on Satur day 10th December. This will be a lovely opportunity for Christmas shopping in stress free surroundings. There will be a range of festive activities, refreshments and good Christmas cheer for all the family! These events are not only hugely enjoyable but provide a significant boost and much needed financial support for the school for which we are very grateful, recently held a Book Fair in school which gave the children the opportunity to browse through and purchase good quality books. The support we received for the Book Fair has enabled us to buy a good number of new books for school w\ will benefit all the children. Our Year 5 and 6 children will be visiting East Barnby Outdoor Learning Centr soon. This will be a fantastic opportunity for them to take part in a wide rang< activities including canoeing, climbing and much more! We look forward to hear all about it when they return! The improvements to the area at the front of school are now complete and we are delighted with the results. We now have a hard-standing area, with seating that will be used as an outside classroom or performance space and a place for parents to collect their children at the end of each school day.
