Primary School children join ‘The Big Help Out’

All the staff and children were encouraged to 'Make a Difference' in their local community by volunteering this weekend.

Mrs Walsh, Head Teacher, said "It was fantastic to see the children coming together to lend a hand in their communities to experience how rewarding volunteering can be, and the power it has to make a change."

The Year 6 children supported the congregation and church wardens at St Phillips Church, Alderley Edge, to help decorate the church building in preparation for the King's Coronation festivitie.

Whilst other children helped at home by reading to their younger siblings, washing cars, helping neighbours and litter picking in their local community.

Mrs Walsh added "Making a positive difference to others is a central aim in our school curriculum. We teach our children the importance of helping others to make a positive impact.

"We were delighted to join in this special initiative for King Charles lll Coronation and our year 6 children felt a sense of pride at helping at St Phillips Church. As a school we will continue to encourage our children to volunteer in their local communities to 'Make a Difference' now and in the future."
