Written by Terry Kemp on .

Now the weather is better the Yurt is being used for Outdoor Learning Sessions. Not that foul weather is really a problem for the Yurt has its own woodstove inside !!!What you might call all 'Mongolian' home comforts .

Tea and Cake thankyou

Written by Terry Kemp on .

On Tuesday 12th of April 2016 our fundraising pupil Jamie and Mrs Howell (Rowdeford Plus Programme Teaching Assistant) showed their appreciation to a kind donation by organising a thank you tea party.

The tea party even included a sponge made by Jamie and his family. As the cake and tea was appreciated so much everyone is thinking that more cake should be baked to encourage more donations !!!!

Fundraising Project Changes

Written by Terry Kemp on .

Thanks to so many people the fundraising project for our Outdoor Learning Centre has progressed in leaps and bounds. With pledges of funds plus money already raised we have over £100,000. 

The demand for the Outddor Learning Centre space however is growing and it is with this in mind that the School and the Trust decided to review where we are and consider next actions. This has now been done and it has revealed that with the restoration of the old building only we could still meet all our targets and benefits. This means that the second ( new build) building for the moment is not required for we are making full use of the Yurt.

This now means that we have a new fundraising target of £216,000 bringing our finish line much closer !  

Each of our kind donors are now being advised of these changes and fresh literature is also being prepared. However we can be optimistic that with luck we could be building by early 2017 ! 

Jamie's now a BBC Radio Star

This week you will be able to hear an interview with Jamie and his Mum on the BBC Wiltshire The Graham Seaman Show.

Graham had heard of the fundraising work that Jamie had set himself and wanted the opportunity to interview him. It was prerecorded to suit all our timetables but it was a great experience for everyone !

During the course of 2015 and 2016 the Wooden Spoon Trust has been activally fundraising for the project. Gareth was on a visit to the school, to talk about progress. Whilst there he was introduced to Jamie who proudly informed him that he had reached his target of £1000 and was now going for £10,000.
