The school council have been working on a new Behaviour Policy. They met for a meeting to decide what should be included, then their ideas were discussed with each class so that every child had a say in the policy. You can see their work in each classroom, as well as around the school.

The latest newsletter and menu have been sent out – look here.
They have started work on repairing the roof and toilets at Nakirebe Primary school – many thanks for all the donations of cakes last term. Our fund raising, combined with generous donations over Easter from the local Easter breakfast, has meant that we have been able to send £1000.
You can also see from the pictures that a large container has arrived. This is the result of a lot of work with another sponsor in the UK. We did send some things to go into the shipment and plan is that the container will be kept by them and fitted out as a play room for the younger pupils.
Last time Brother John visited us he took back some seeds to grow hoping that is would help to vary the vegetable diet for the orphans. As you can see he has been very successful with the courgettes and the sweetcorn is looking good too!!
Many thanks, as always, for your continued support of our link school in Uganda.
We are successfully using the Maths No Problem scheme of work throughout the school beginning in year 1. This scheme has been developed using the principles of how maths is so successfully taught in Singapore. There are some excellent videos that explain some of the thinking and methods. If you prefer to read about it, have a look under the ‘Our Approach’ tab on the Maths No Problem website.
Our new Change for Life club has proved very popular, with regular attendees and lots of healthy activity and food tasting. We have all tried new foods: zesty lemons, spicy sweet chilli sauce, seeded wholemeal crackers, hearty root vegetables and lots more! We have all discovered at least one new likeable taste and texture.
We have also tried out different ways of exercising and used some unexpected equipment!
Congratulations to everyone who completed Swanage Library’s Summer Reading Challenge.
