RSPCA – Animal Dress Up Day
We had a great day dressed as all sorts of animals (both staff and children) on Friday 29th November. This was an idea from the School Council that helped us to raise another £70.40 for the RSPCA, our charity for the year. We now have a total of £92.19 towards our £500 target. Many thanks to our parents who helped create such a memorable day for our children.
Streatley Young Voices
We were very proud of our Year 5 children who performed at the ‘Combined Choirs Concert’, St.Thomas’ Church on Saturday 23rd November. Our singers performed admirably with Goring YouNg Voices and Berkshire Young Voices. This follows a number of singing workshops this term which all of our Year 5 and 6 pupils have enjoyed, lead by Elizabeth Parkinson (Goring Primary School teacher). Our singers were great ambassadors for our school having a presence in our local community. We continue to seek further opportunity to develop our community partnerships, one of our key priorities in our School Development Plan. Look out for reports of the event in The Goring Gap News, The Reading Chronicle and The Henley Standard.
