The Scoop Week 14th March

Hello Lyndhurst Family,

I wanted to start this week’s scoop with a ginormous thank you to everyone who helped out in any way last weekend. Whether you helped for a few hours, helped with planning logistics, stayed for a day or all weekend all of your help was not only greatly appreciated but also made a massive difference to our site. We managed to get a first coat of wood stain on most of the woodwork in the playground, build a new fence for nursery, remove a shed and clear and prep the Michael Joyce Memorial garden ready for the last big push. The work will not only make our school a more inviting and exciting space but the donation of time has meant that we can focus our limited financial resources on the things that matter to our pupils. Thank you all.
