Great news! As a school, through very generous donations from our children, their families and staff,
we managed to raise enough money to buy a shelter box.

Watch this space for a tracking number which you can input on http://www.shelterbox.org/trackbox.php
to track where our box goes and the family it will help over the next two years as they rebuild their lives.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated so generously to this great cause.

Please support this worthy cause.


We had some very special visitors in school to talk to us about 'Shelter Boxes' and how these can help people to survive in disaster areas.
 


There are lots of life saving things in the Shelter Box and will help a family of 10 survive for two years.


 


There is a water filtration system to help families have access to clean drinking water and stop the spread of fatal diseases.


There are tools, blankets, a mosquito net to stop people contracting malaria, a cooking stove and utensils so families can have hot meals.

   


Miss Callaghan modelled a very fetching waterproof poncho! She was that taken with it she asked if she could take it home!


There is even something to keep the children entertained, John challenged one of our pupils to a game of noughts and crosses
and was very graceful in defeat!


Of all the items in the 'Shelter Box' one of the most important is the 10 person tent.
The tent was designed by the Royal Navy and can withstand extremes of temperature from searing heat to freezing cold and
is weather proof, thus keeping families very comfortable whilst waiting for permanent homes to be rebuilt.


We all had a chance to have a look inside the tent.

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   


Mrs Pike's class were very lucky and got to have a closer look at everything in the 'Shelter Box' look out for the photo in the local paper.
