Adventure Trail

This afternoon the school council met with Mr Kershaw to plea for more outdoor equipment for the school’s playground.  In particular, the children have requested an adventure playground which includes, climbing apparatus, monkey bars, tyres and much more.

Mr Kershaw was very impressed with the school councils ideas and reasonings for this plea and has gone away to consider our plea.

Our next project is to build up a plan of what we want exactly, price this up and send this to Mr Kershaw, he will then make his decision and meet back with us in the near future with his decision.

If there is anything you would like in particular for the adventure trail please leave a comment or speak to your councillor in class.IMG_0843 IMG_0845 IMG_0846 IMG_0848 IMG_0852 IMG_0853

Donating food to Farnworth Food Bank

Today after Year 3’s class assembly about Harvest the school councillors delivered the donated food to the local food bank.  The children enjoyed donating the food and helped to organise the food into the right crates.

Altogether at The Ferns we managed to donate 144kg worth of food.  This will help lots of families to eat a healthy, balanced meal in their time of need.  We hope to organise another event in the future to be able to help the Food Bank again.

A special thanks to Mr McIntyre who very generously gave up his time to educate us on how the food bank works and where the food goes.IMG_0504 IMG_0505 IMG_0509 IMG_0513 IMG_0514 IMG_0517 IMG_0519 IMG_0520 IMG_0521
