Our Student Leaders volunteered to help out at the KCC Christmas Market on Wednesday evening in aid of CRY (Care and Relief for the Young).  As always, they were absolutely incredible and represented the School beautifully.  We had so many lovely comments from members of the public!  A great start to the Christmas festivities.  

Musical Sound Bites November 2019

We have had yet another successful Soundbites concert.  These concerts give an opportunity to all students who take instrumental lessons, regardless of their grade, the chance to perform a solo or group piece to a small audience.  The hope is that this will help develop their performance skills and give them the confidence to perform more often in the future.  All of the students performed brilliantly, and for many of them this was their first concert.  We hope to see them performing again in our next Soundbites concert in May. 

IBM Women in Technology

As part of the IBM Women in Technology event yesterday, students had to come up with an idea that could reduce carbon, energy, water or waste in our school.  They had to implement technology in some way.  The groups then pitched their ideas and IBM picked their two winning groups.

This year we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our school community coming together to contribute to the Rotary Shoe Box appeal to help those less fortunate.  It looks like we have an amazing amount of shoeboxes once again which is simply incredible.  

vacancies for Members, Trustees and Local Governors

Wildern Academy Trust has vacancies for Members, Trustees and Local Governors for Boorley Park primary school. Over the next few months the Trust will also be seeking Local Governors to form the Local Governing Body (LGB) for Deer Park.

Members are responsible for appointing Trustees and ensuring that the Trust Board adhere to their statutory requirements. It is a less time consuming role than a Trustee but still requires essential action to ensure compliance.

The skill specifically needed to fulfil the Trustee vacancies is finance.

To fulfil the vacancies on the LGBs a knowledge of education would be an advantage. Above all a commitment and willingness to support the Trust as it expands is essential.

If you are interested please contact the clerk to the Trust Board, Annette Towgood at
