It’s taking shape… the monster undertaking that is the Green Club Caterpillar.
As mentioned in the February newsletter, a group of Dorset headteachers have formed a campaign called Worth Less aimed at getting a fairer funding in education.
They are getting increasingly worried about the financial position of Dorset schools and feel that parental support is crucial to getting action on this matter. You can read the letter sent to the Chancellor or the Exchequer here.
You can also look at the School Cuts website to see the likely effect on local schools’ future budgets.
The latest newsletter has been sent out – look here.
Members of the green club enjoyed making bird food-feeders in a variety of shapes.
We wish a happy and peaceful year ahead to all our children, parents, family and friends.

All classes will be doing some road safety awareness work this week. Have a look at the advice for parents on the road safety charity Brake website.
You can read the key slides from this presentation which explained both the importance of reading at home and examples of how best to support it.
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.
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.
