Tilstock CE Primary Set Up New Enrichment Facilities

Tilstock CE Primary School have recently received a number of generous donations from local community organisations.

The primary school received £500 from the Tilstock PCC and a further £500 from the Rotary Club in Whitchurch. This has enabled staff to develop the grounds of the Forest School area and purchase much needed resources to deliver weekly Forest School sessions. As well as teaching children about the natural world, Forest School will enrich the pupils’ curriculum, through the development of fine motor skills, problem solving skills, teamwork and communication. On Wednesday 20th November, Tilstock welcomed Peggy Mullock, President of Whitchurch Rotary Club into school, she commented; “It was fantastic to visit today and see the pupils enjoying the newly developed Forest School area. Whitchurch Rotary are pleased to be able to help Tilstock CE Primary School enhance their Forest School, which will provide not only enrichment and incentive to the children, but act as a useful learning tool in which the pupils can develop their motor skills.”

The Horseshoes Pub in Tilstock, also kindly donated £100 for the development of a Nurture Room. This is accessed by all pupils in the school to promote the use of the school’s ‘Rest Easy’ programme, which focuses on well-being and mindfulness by providing pupils with a relaxing and quiet space.

Mrs Rowena Kaminski, acting Head of School commented; “On behalf of all at Tilstock CE Primary School I would like to say a big thank you to all our donators. Their generosity has allowed us to fund these fantastic new facilities which will be a real benefit to our pupils going forwards.”
