Participating in community activities
100 years on from the boot and shoe March in Eyam
Jam Tan Primary School in Burkina fason, Western Africa
Through the School Council the children fund raise regularly for our link school Jam Tan Primary which is in Burkina Faso, Western Africa. We've provided a class room wall, toys, play equipment and food as well as moral boosting letters and messages. The children here voted to send an annual Christmas gift instead of our usual saint visit here - he just pops along to say hello now but without his bag!
Activities in the Community
Fundraising for our Community and the wider world.
The School Council meet to decide which charities we will support each year. We always support the Poppy Appeal, Save the Children and Comic Relief as well as the Harvest collection for the Sheffield Food Bank Appeal. In addition we have supported the Blue marine Foundation, Bumble bees, a cancer hospital in Kenya and Ukranian refugees as well as the earthquake appeal.
Music for the Mind
A group of older pupils go to the Church Centre once a month and help chat with the oldest members of our community who enjoy singing and a well deserved cup of tea. This is such a wonderful way to learn how to chat to older folk and to help out too!
This PTFA lead event raises £1000s towards the larger projects such as the Music and group learning space, the ramp and a new Library. Our thanks go to the many ex-pupils and families who continue to support us in providing a top class education to our children.
The Village magazine
We try and have an article in here to ensure the wider community hear all about what we are doing in school.
Wellbeing walk with the community
We recognise the benefit to our health and wellbeing by taking time out for a community walk - recognising our wonderful environment we have in the village - it's a chance to walk and chat with people we don't know so well, sing and get our bearings.
