Garden Project Litter Picking

About an hour ago, a group of Year 5 students joined Councillors Ishmael and Darvish, along with Community Worker Aboh and a team of voluntary workers in a litter-picking tidy of an under-used and overgrown region of Kingsley Street. Handi-reacher’s and dustbin bags were provided as paired teams of Year 5 students and community workers removed all the litter they could find.

This was to launch a new project to transform the area into a new playground and garden zone for the community and school. A design competition is planned to generate great ideas for the best use of the land. Watch this space!

After the area was transformed into a litter-free zone (LFZ) the councillors and community workers left the Handi-reacher’s and remaining dustbin bags for St Thomas to keep the area around the school and church an LFZ. Hopefully the work can continue regularly to keep St Thomas School and Church looking beautiful and clean!


Trip to Frankie and Benny’s!

To celebrate the end of another term here at St Thomas’, 30 lucky chance card winners visited Frankie and Benny’s for an exciting, fun-filled morning. We took part in a cocktail masterclass where we had the chance to taste some delicious mocktails, designed our own pizzas and even had the chance to make (and of course eat) our very special creations – they were yummy! It is safe to say that fun was had by all.

We are already looking forward to next term’s trip and who know’s, it could be YOU who is coming along!

The School Council think that excellent behaviour should be recognised and encouraged, so every Friday ‘Green Stickers’ will be awarded to all children who have been on the Green Traffic Light for the whole week.  In addition to this, every half term, the class with the highest percentage of ‘Green Stickers’ will be awarded a treat (School Council are in the process of deciding what these treats will be).
