Fundraising for Others
Understanding the needs of others less fortunate than ourselves and how others can be helped via fundraising is embedded into our curriculum. We hold 3 charity events/days each academic year, where we support an International Charity, a National Chairty and a Local Charity. This years chosen charities are:
- International Charity - "Africa" - Date during the summer term to be confirmed
- National Charity - The British Heart Foundation - "Arties Olympics" was held in school on Tuesday 26 March
- Local Charity - The Shekinah Mission - we collected lots of food items during our Harvest Festival last term
Fundraising for Mill Ford School
Summer Fair 2015
Our Summer Fair is being held on Thursday 2 July. Lots of stalls and exciting activities will be going on during the afternoon. Please come along and support us! More details to follow soon.
Mill Ford Friends are currently in the process of applying for a Gift Aid number through HM Revenue & Customs. Once this is achieved, we will then be in a position to join "Virgin MoneyGiving". This is an exciting opportunity that will open up a new range of fund raising opportunities! Watch this space!
Up-grading of out-door Learning Environment
The school playground needs up-dating and lots of new equipment is needed for play and for learning. We would like to install lots of outdoor exercise equipment to help our pupils keep fit and also an inclusive roundabout, so that our pupils in wheelchairs can play with their able-bodied peers. The roundabout has now been purchased and installed - during the May half-term break - and pupils are really enjoying the inclusive play opportunities.
